FUNKESTRA LIVE SHOW FT AMBA TREMAIN | MAY 3

Funkestra live show ft. Amba Tremain, May 3 at the Login Lounge in Camberly. The concert will form part of Camberly Gin & Music Festival. The festival is from 2nd to 6th of May and will also feature Toploader, East 17, State of Satta and The Members.

You can book your tickets HERE.

THE BAND

It’s been a while since the Funkestra has gone out to play some Funk and Soul in public. We are very much looking forward to it.

Amba Tremain | vocals
Olivia Haggarty | BVs
Rob Taggart | keyboards
Simon Allen | saxophone, 2nd keys
Mike Sturgis | drums
Terry Lewis | guitar
Stefan Redtenbacher | bass, MD

This will be our first show featuring (amazing) vocalists Amba Tremain and her sister Olivia Haggarty. As always, drummer Mike ‘The Oracle’ Sturgis will bring the groove. Terry Lewis on guitar will add a bucket-load of soul, and long standing Funkestra associates Rob Taggart (keys) and Simon Allen (saxophone and more keys!) reunite to complete the lineup.

New faces and a kind of a reunion of old friends at the same time.

THE MUSIC

We will play some groovified instrumental Funk as well Funkestra arrangements of classic alongside some original material.

Theme: Upbeat and fun with a cooking band and riveting vocals.

TEASER VIDEO

Watch ‘Superstition (Masterlink Session)‘ with Amba HERE.

“From as early as I can remember, Stevie has always been my favourite artist. And from the moment I was out gigging, ‘Superstition’ was always in my set. I wanted to pay homage to one of my favourites but in a way that hadn’t been done before. As a fan of James Brown too I dreamt of giving Superstition a 3/4 ‘Man’s World’ feel and VOILA… Stefan brought the track to life!” (Amba Tremain, Dec 2023)

Looking forward to seeing you all on May 3 at the Login Lounge in Camberly.

Carpe funkem, Stefan

PS: Save May 24 too – we will perform at London’s Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club not only featuring Amber but also Rumer, Jo Harman and Mim Grey. You can get your tickets HERE. The show is billed as ‘Soul Picnic’.
