Real Funk Soul Brothers!

As of August 2019 the band is led by male lead vocalist Chris Madin*, a professional vocalist who performed on Strictly Come Dancing on BBC TV for seven years and has appeared on countless BBC radio jingles, TV theme tunes and pop tours. He is accompanied by the fabulous Anna Ross-Straw on female vocals and an array of musicians including Jon Wilson (guitar), Dave Graham (keyboards and sax), Tom Bull (bass), Bryan Corbett (trumpet), Chris ‘Beebe’ Aldridge (sax) and Jay Goldmark (drums).

The band carries full public liability insurance and all equipment is PAT tested. Copies available on request.

Central Location

Funk Soul Brother is based in Leicestershire and Rutland in the East Midlands and is therefore superbly located to perform at events all over the UK. The band also travels internationally provided that all associated costs are met.
