We’re delighted to have of the one nations favourite live funk & soul outfit Smoove & Turrell returning to the Hare & Hounds on 19th October following their sell out show earlier in the year. If you were there you know its not one to be missed!
Having gained popularity and recognition from some of the UKs most esteemed music outputs… John Turrells incredible blues laden soulful voice has been compared to the Rat Pack via Curtis Mayfield and Stevie Wonder and its this powerhouse that works perfectly with a band produced by long time funk and soul figurehead Smoove.
A world class producer who has finally found a world class singer and lyricist to work with.
The Singles I Cant Give You Up, You Dont Know, and Beggarman from their debut album Antique Soul gave them two BBC Radio 2 Record Of The Week listings, Playlistings on BBC 6 Music and rave revues across the board including Craig Charles on his prime time BBC 6 Music Funk and Soul Show.
Having headlined stages of 10,000 fans at Glastonbury Festival to having their first 7 single sell for upwards or £150 on ebay. The bands current album Eccentric Audio is currently making the rounds and was hotly tipped as the big soul album of 2010 by DJs, Critics and Fans alike. Slow Down reached Number One in the iTunes Soul Chart as well as being a breakaway success across European National Radio Stations. The second single Hard Work has been playlisted across the UK and Europe.

The rest of 2012 sees the band back in the studio laying down album number three, scheduled for release 2013 on Jalapeno Records so we delighted they are taking time out to come and bring some Funk & Soul to Birmingham!
