This six-piece collective from London can burn up the dance floor make no mistake. With regular gigs throughout London over the past three years, including the Jazz Café Cargo, and the Gardening Club, Alaska Street have built a loyal fan-base and perfected a blistering live show. Alaska Street's thumping backline consists of Angus Whitley on drums, Ben Humphries on bass, and Adam Threlfall on guitar. Fronting with style and attitude, Neen leads on vocals, whilst rapper Luis D whips up a storm with his urban beat poetry and Emma B's sound is simply pure sax on legs. From the ecstatic hedonism of Happy Daze to the blistering political anthem of Ghetto Funk, Alaska Street songs always deliver a lyrical punch and never fail to entertain. The music moves effortlessly from lilting vocal jazz melodies, to bass-driven, brass-led, foot-stomping funk, guaranteed to force even the most miserable into a happy groove. In the midst of original songs, Alaska Street delights audiences with surprising and inventive homages to Prince, Ella Fitzgerald, and even the children's television show Grange Hill!
