Musician

The Filthy Six

The Filthy Six are the most exciting, authentic soul jazz outfit in the UK today and have established themselves as one of the most electric live acts on the scene. Their soaring horns, blistering guitar and gut-wrenching organ are fuelled by one of the hardest grooving rhythm sections around, producing a hip-shakingly powerful mix of jazz, funk and boogaloo, totally in keeping with the finest traditions of the late 60s Blue Note/Prestige sound.

Led by Trumpeter Nick Etwell (Tom Jones/Beck/David Axelrod/Mumford & Sons), this band of musical gunslingers have worked with some of the biggest names in music: Amy Winehouse, Mavis Staples, Ronnie Spector, Mark Ronson, Jill Scott, Jack White, Dionne Warwick, The Foo Fighters, Robbie Williams, Duran Duran, Chrissie Hynde, Noel Gallagher, Disclosure, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Fred Wesley and Spiritualized to name a few.

Lorenzo Corrias

Born:

Lorenzo Corrias is a young bassist and producer born on April 11th, 2003 in Rome, Italy, where he's currently based. Music has always been an important part of his life, and at the age of 13, after hearing Marcus Miller's music, he decided to learn to play the bass. In 2019, in his first participation to Victor Wooten's bass camp, Lorenzo played Marcus Miller's "Power" on the stage. Victor Wooten was kind enough to shoot a video of the performance and send it to Marcus Miller, who responded "Damn, Lorenzo is trying to take somebody's head off!". Lorenzo's biggest bass inspirations are Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten, Stuart Zender. Since 2018 Lorenzo has been playing at Umbria Jazz festival almost every year, and participated to the Berklee clinics where he met some of the musicians that have been involved in the making of his first official track. In Lorenzo's first single "Equilibrium" the style of the artist is very audible since not only he produced, composed and recorded bass on it, but also composed and recorded he vast majority of synths, programmed strings, horns, and mixed and mastered the track.

Bees Deluxe

Active since:

Bees Deluxe is an anything-but-basic blues band. They are hell-bent on a mission to drag the electric-analog blues of Chicago in the 60’s, the Blue Note catalog and the funk of New Orleans into the 21st century. The band has won audiences from Maine to the Mississippi with their arresting and highly danceable originals and their innovative interpretation of less-travelled tunes by artists like Etta James, Joe Zawinul, J.B. Lenoir, Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, Albert Collins and the three Kings. “...what might happen if Freddie King took a lot of acid then wrote a song with Pat Metheny and asked a strung- out Stevie Ray Vaughan to take a solo” — Blues Blast Magazine The four-piece band is spearheaded by the dual-frontline of British guitar monster Conrad Warre and Carol Band on keyboards, harmonica & vocals
