Motown and soulful funk driven covers from a super six piece function and party band

This increasingly popular Margate based six- piece band go from strength to strength. More often seen at the choicest venues Margate, Canterbury, Whitstable and Folkestone. Soulful Classics are the staple. Jazzspirational grooves are essential plus upbeat funky numbers to bring the vibe and on the spot improvisation, 'true' stories and acid jazz flights make the cherry on top go POP! Come ready to laugh and dance. Great highs have followed their launch year where the band supported the original 'Rammer Jammer' Gino Washington. 2014 brought the exciting start of their monthly Sunday Soul Sessions at the Gulbenkian Cafe (University of Kent) as well as great support for gigs and Main Stage set during 2015s hugely popular Margate Soul Festival. Their successful introduction to Margate during 2013's One Love festival has cemented the town's love of their upbeat soul brand with regular with gigs and party nights scheduled throughout the year at Morgan's Vintage Dance Hall and unexpected 'pop ups' at the iconic Dreamland bandstand and the open air stage at the newly refurbished Folkestone Harbour Arm. “We really try not to oversell ourselves in each area and will only play one or two venues in each town.

It has been my Fortune to have witnessed the Fantastic 'Phenomenon' that is Project F at many a Function. They are Furiously Funky, Fabulously Fun, and, and.... and....OK I've run out of F words? If you haven't seen them, WHY NOT??? They're the tightest funk band for many a mile, perhaps in the world 😎🤗❤️
