The Spitfires are a Watford based band who have been together since 2012, featuring songwriter Billy Sullivan on Vocal/Guitars, 

Sam Long on Bass/Vocals, Matt Johnson on Drums and Chris Chanell on Keyboard/Vocals.

The Spitfires have released three critically acclaimed singles (Spark to Start , Tell Me and I’m Holdin’ On) , gigged extensively at home 

and abroad in which fans new and old alike immerse themselves in the power and energy that comes firing off the stage.

 It’s no wonder that the likes of The Specials and Paul Weller have asked the band to support them recently.

The band have just finished recording their debut LP which will see the light of day later this year.

“Great band, punk pop power!” – Gary Crowley, BBC London

“The most energy I’ve seen in a band in 20 years” – Martin Blunt, The Charlatans

The Fantastics - 'All The People' Album Launch

The Jazz Cafe 03/09/2011

Freestyle Records big hitters The Fantastics! are back with a brand new exciting album: 'All The People'. Never comfortable within tightly defined and rigid musical genres. The Fantastics! have always been pushing the boundaries and honing their eclectic style. 'All The People' sees this talented bunch dip their toes into a pool of soul-jazz, blues, latin, rock, ska, funk & fusion,laced with a distinctly progressive edge, performed with superb musicianship.

The Fantastics! are Greg Boraman (keyboards), Pete Collison (guitar), Raydn Hunter (bass), Mark Norton (brass), James Smith (drums) and Sulene Fleming (vocals). The band first began to take shape in 2003 after keyboard player Greg departed the ranks of the acclaimed deep funk outfit The Soul Destroyers (Jazzman Records) and answered the call to fill the keyboard seat in Reverend Cleatus & The Soul Saviours, the previous incarnation of the band.

After changing their name to The Fantastics! Freestyle Records founder Adrian Gibson picked up the band, resulting in their debut album ´Mighty Righteous´ in 2009 which featured vocals from UK soul legend Noel McKoy. The albums critical acclaim led to live performances on BBC Radio 2´s Mark Lamarr show (twice!) and Craig Charles’ BBC6 Music Funk & Soul Show as well as countless club and festival appearances across Europe.

Now in 2011 - featuring the stunning vocal talents of Sulene Fleming, who was bought up on a musical diet of Marvin Gaye and Ella Fitzgerald to The Kinks and Fleetwood Mac. Sulene worked with Ministry Of Sound, Soulheat Records, Cooker Records, and Ecko Records, as well as featuring on numerous compilations as well as writing and performing for numerous TV and film projects.

The recent single ‘Somewhere…Finally’ was a Jazz FM ‘Single Of The Week’, and also featured on BBC Radio 2, 6 Music and was ‘described by BBC London 94.9 presenter Robert Elms as ‘the song of the moment for me’ and had the band in to perform live on his show.

DOORS 19.00-02.00 



TEL 0681 973395

London’s prestigious G-Spot Events are going Dutch for 2009.

They are famed for serving up a veritable feast of funk and soul, delivered by the cream of the international crop, and tonight will be no exception.



Lefties Soul Connection  

With the release of their new album, ‘Skimming the Skum’, the Amsterdam collective, Lefties Soul Connection can definitely be placed among the best funk bands on the scene today.

They’ve picked up some of the grooves and philosophy from the likes of The Meters and The JB’s and mixed it up with hip-hop breakbeat and (mod) rock, tipping their hat to the likes of Jurrasic 5, The Roots and the Beastie Boys.


“The best and coolest funk band, and even one of the best rock bands of the Netherlands. 5 stars”

Volkskrant (Dutch national newspaper; translated)


"Lefties Soul Connection receives the stamp of approval from me and I think they should also receive the stamp of approval from the world”.

Leo Nocentelli (The Meters, New Orleans)


“It's an exciting, organic sound that loudly declares: Funk's not dead.”

Japan Times




Corrina Greyson 

‘Miss G’, the lady behind G-Spot Events is no stranger to these shores.

In the 90’s she toured extensively throughout Europe and the states, and her commanding performances earned her the reputation as one of the UK’s best female blues and soul vocalists.

She has since gone on to record and perform with many of the UK’s funk and soul scenes most established artists..

Tonight she’ll be taking to the stage, in her inimitable style with Lefties Soul Connection to deliver a raw and soul drenched vocal set.  



DJ Henry Storch


Henry Storch, owner of germany’s most important leftfield venue, the Unique Club in Düsseldorf, who also founded Unique Records, a very highly regarded label by the biggest names in funk music throughout Europe and beyond, will be delighting us with the best in rare deep funk / latin-jazz / northern-soul and modern sample delicates.
