    The Brand New Heavies

    Funk royalty and pioneers of the 90s Acid Jazz scene, The Brand New Heavies have achieved sixteen UK Top 40 singles and released two Platinum-selling albums and two gold albums in the UK. Headed up today by founding members and principal songwriters Simon Bartholomew and Andrew Levy, the group are stronger than ever, continuing an incredible thirty-year run that’s seen them dominate pop charts the world over and inspire generations of later artists, including Jamiroquai and super-producer Mark Ronson, who named their debut album as one of the five records that changed his life.

    The Brand New Heavies release their brand new 30th Anniversary album "TBNH" (Acid Jazz) this autumn Sept 6th, which features guest appearances from Beverley Knight, NDea Davenport, The Angie Stone, Siedah Garrett, Laville, Angela Ricci, #JackKnight, Honey Larochelle. The lead single from the album is a collaboration with NDea Davenport covering the Kendrick Lamar song "These Walls" lovingly produced by Mark Ronson himself.

    Emerging at the forefront of London’s acid jazz scene, the Brand New Heavies transformed their love for 70’s funk grooves into a new and exciting sound that electrified clubs across the UK capital. Throughout an illustrious career that’s seen their line-up change several times, the group have released ten studio albums alongside multiple compilations and remix albums. Hugely popular singles like “Never Stop”, “Dream Come True” , “Midnight At The Oasis”,”Don’t Let It Go To Your Head”, “Dream On Dreamer”, and “Stay This Way” helped to build a loyal worldwide fanbase, with songs featuring in Hollywood movies Sliding Doors, American Pie and Happy Feet.

    Friday 4 October 2019 - The Brook, as part of it's 25th Anniversary Year celebrations welcomes THE BRAND NEW HEAVIES live in full format for a special and rare night of everything Soul, Funk, Acid Jazz and Disco!

    "Tristan were an absolute blast! They nailed it right from the first number, impressing the  audience with their exemplary musicianship and original compositions." Steve Wright, Jazz Curator, Colchester Arts Centre Jazz Club, UK 
     
    "Tristan's uplifting grooves and consummate musicianship provided an upbeat  energy that well fitted our festival vibe. Hopefully more UK audiences will get the  chance to discover them." Tony Benjamin, Bristol Harbour-festival, UK 
     
    “It gives me great pleasure to spread the news of Tristan's new album. Dutch jazz fusion  and soul at it's finest! A collection of instrumentals that will enthrall musicians everywhere and  beautifully penned songs with gorgeous voices! Check it out! Peace..."  Bluey (Incognito) 
     
    ". . . an uncompromising recipe of Tower of Power’s funky jazz hits,  Toto’s slick pop/R&B crossover arrangements and Steely Dan’s intricate pop/jazz melodies." SoulTracks 
     
    "Doesn't look like you need the Hampton Horns anymore! haha! Wow…. it sounds great, I love you guys" Randy Brecker 
     
     
    JAZZ, FUNK & SOUL WITH TRISTAN 
     
    Dutch five-piece Tristan's music can be best described as feel-good vintage Acid Jazz, with the energy,  vibe and sounds of today, performed by some of the best contemporary pop/jazz musicians from Europe. 
    Funky rhythm guitars, Hammond, Fender Rhodes and synths, and a rhythm section that has  been performing together for decades playing solid grooves and tight, punchy arrangements that  have since become their trademark. All this underpins singer Evelyn Kallansee's stunningly beautiful vocals. It will take you back to that  great warm sound of the 70's, with a fresh breeze of influences from the present. 
     
    While Tristan’s music may sound like bands such as Tower of Power, Snarky Puppy, or classic Acid Jazz acts such as Incognito and the Brand New Heavies - who all produce high energy grooves –  what makes this group stand out from their contemporaries is the high quality of the compositions and  arrangements. 
     
    Tristan's debut release, ‘Full Power’ - which featured US soul singer Heston, UK saxophone maestro  Nigel Hitchcock and legendary American trumpeter Randy Brecker - received rave reviews, while their highly acclaimed follow-up, ‘2nd Phase’, proved that this is a band with something to say, both  albums going straight to No 1 in the UK soul charts. The group continued to surprise again, with  ‘Lifestyle’ . Tristan’s third album, has been released in spring 2016 and is received enormous:

    “There’s nothing like the depth, detail and sonic impact of a good vinyl record" say the SOUL 45 DJs (Mark James & Neil Walters), and they should know, they have been championing the 45RPM/ 7” vinyl format for the last 4 years in Southampton and at their SOUL 45 club nights. Everything from classic Motown sounds to raw Soul, heavy Funk, Disco, Boogie and B-Boy Breaks, Roots Reggae, modern day releases and some golden Hip Hop thrown in for good measure – and keeping with the perspective of the old-school, few things are as fabled as the practice of collecting and spinning 45s. Smaller than a 12-inch record, but larger than a compact disc, 7-inches might be outdated technology but pack a lot of punch with a rich warm sound.


    It’s not about dj technique, it’s about great taste and their growing reputation for dance parties has brought them sets alongside local and international acts alike, including Trojan Sound System, Eddie Piller, Public Service Broadcasting, Craig Charles, Don Letts, Hannah William & The Tastemakers, Charley Macaulay, Freddie & The Freeloaders, Black Cat Boppers, Mayfield, DJ Format, Mr Thing, New Street Adventure and the legendary Afrika Bambaataa among others.

    Soul 45 dj sets are a refreshing hot alternative to the Top 40, new dance-trends and other cookie-cutter nights out and most defiantly a unique music experience you can’t find anywhere else on the southcoast.
