Latimo 'Heavy pop-funk'

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Friday 3 rd March 2017

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Latimo, no stranger to the London club scene, bring their funky, horn-heavy grooves and soaring vocals to The Pheasantry this March. Formed in late 2013, this group of 8 musicians brought together their love for jazz, funk and soul and created a sound that both encapsulated their favourite genres but moved away from them at the same time.

"Latimo are a slick, stylish and professional band that consistently deliver on the live stage. Their original songs are a polished blend of funk & soul with widespread appeal - guaranteed to get any party started".

Rupert Burley

Raised from the Grassroots level, Latimo have played a host of pubs and clubs throughout London such as the 229 Club, Nambucca and The Enterprise as well as the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and Streatham Hideaway Jazz Club. Their set consists of blisteringly funky tunes interspersed with reworked versions of classic favourites With their debut album due out in 2017, seeing Latimo on their rise is not to be missed!

The contrast between and within tracks will keep the audience on their toes – beautiful ballads interspersed with funky trumpet solos, more classic funk tunes with a real pop flavour and sickeningly virtuosic guitar solos appearing designed to rip you out of your seat. Above all Latimo tries to capture the grooves that made them want to be musicians in the first place, so whether you come for the gorgeous vocals, intricate horn solis or infectious rhythms you will definitely be tapping your feet in no time.
