The Headhunters on Tuesday 4th December 2018

Located at the infectious crossroads of funk and jazz is the internationally acclaimed band The Headhunters. Forty years in the industry has melded their sound into an energetic ride through the roots of music in the beats of ancient percussion instruments to the electronic vibrations of the future.

The iconic songs “God Made Me Funky” and “Watermelon Man” bathe the crowd in foot-tapping head-bobbing energy from the first few notes. Their concerts are a synergy of well-honed grooves and living in the moment improvisations, familiar yet surprising notes that both jam and soothe.

A Headhunters show weaves the threads of contemporary R&B music in the loom of elevated space-jazz. BET.com proclaims “God Make Me Funky” as one of the most Influential Hip-Hop Samples ever. The band has influenced the sound of acid-jazz and such musicians as Grammy-Award winning artists, Esperanza Spalding and Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews. Their songs have been sampled by artists around the Globe including Usher, Prince, Nas, The Roots, Madonna, and many more.

Their influence on the jazz world as we know it today cannot be underestimated – they are bonafide legends and it’s a privilege to welcome them back to the UK.

This is a standing show. Presented by Bam!Bam!Bam!
