Danny Toeman and The Love Explosion

PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

Cooking up a fresh batch of London Soul Stew, ‘Mr. Showtime’ Danny Toeman and his full band can’t wait to return to their favourite stage at PizzaExpress Live, bigger than ever before, in all their soul-shaking glory! Inspired by the great soul legends that preceded him, Danny Toeman seamlessly blends the classic vibes of Funk and Soul’s golden age with his own inimitable flair. A vibrant and powerful performer, his gravel tones combined with an altitude-defying falsetto set him apart, creating a sound oozing with character and emotion.


“Some artists say their music has 'soul', but then you get a different kind of artist. The kind you listen to and in an instant you realise... they have soul. London-based musician Danny Toeman channels the golden era of the genre with 'neo-vintage' style [...] we have to do our utmost to marinate our ears in the rich, funkalicious vocal acrobatics that so organically flow from the heart of people like this.”
