“Blaring horn riffs, wild solos, heaps of frantic percussion and some meaty bass playing on show on an easy¬to¬like bunch of tunes”

Echoes Magazine

Based in London, hailing from Montenegro, Moscow, Sydney and beyond, Soul Grenades have established themselves as one of the most exciting acts on the live scene and festival circuit.

A veritable tornado of funk, the band boasts a super-tight rhythm section, a wall of brass and a burgeoning song book of original music. Fusing their many influences, encompassing crate-digging rarities to contemporary dance floor fillers, Soul Grenades deliver no-nonsense, hard-hitting funk and soul music.

“Delicious Detonation”, Soul Grenades’ sophomore album, received extensive airplay and critical acclaim worldwide. Their 2017 debut LP “Pullin’ The Pin” was equally well received. The band’s first 45 on Mukatsuku Records received rave reviews and airplay on BBC Radio 6 Music on The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show.

The band have performed at some of the UK’s most prestigious venues including The Jazz Cafe, The 100 Club, The Blues Kitchen, Pizza Express Jazz Club, Matt & Phred’s, South London Soul Train and many more. Soul Grenades have performed at major festivals including Green Man, Kendal Calling, Manchester Jazz Festival, Elderflower Fields and The Great Estate.

The band have supported several internationally renowned recording artists including Sister Sledge, The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show, Brooklyn Funk Essentials, The Mighty Mocambos, Geno Washington, The Filthy Six, Crowd Company and more.
