Fabulous Red Diesel (music)

Willingdon pub The Wheatsheaf Inn is bringing St Leonards' band The Fabulous Red Diesel to Eastbourne for their very first visit to the town on the 26th of January 13th of April (date has changed since I first published this post). The gig could well be a busy one and I'm not quite sure how the Wheatsheaf is going to cram in a six-piece band!

Driven by the creative force of Kat and Will Lee-Ryan, The Fabulous Red Diesel was formed about ten years ago. They are favourites on the underground festival scene and have a really funky jazz / soul sound - perfect for summer fields and winter pubs! They play all their own, original music and frequently go to town with their appearance, performing as a Bohemia vision of sparkle and colour. Their second album, We Know It's 43, was released in August 2012 and is available from their own website as well as by download from Amazon. I've been playing the music over Christmas and it has a decadent laid-back vibe with lots of brass and smooth soulful vocals. The YouTube below was recorded nearly a year ago, in Jan 2012, and is one of the tracks from We Know It's 43 entitled Blue.
