“The steamiest, phonkiest team out there right now”

“The LBJBs always kick the end of the night into the sky with an epic send off” Isla Greenwood (Travelmag)

“The LBJB’s will bring this night to the boil nice n’ easy!” (Plainandsimple) 

The LBJBs are a group of hard funking mutha F***ers who gave birth to Bristol’s now infamous Leftbank Jam Band session. Taking their name from the venue, with a nod to James Brown’s band, they have spent every Thursday for the past five years tearing it up. The weekly residency has became a focal point for both players and a loving audience alike, who pack out the dance floor week in, week out. Now making moves beyond their home turf, with sets at Craig Charles Funk and Soul Club

And Glastonbury Festival already in the bag, they are set to bring nuthin’ but the heaviest damn funk!
