Coco Malone & The Questions
Her vocals are sometimes soul and funk, sometimes soulful, sometimes powerful, sometimes vulnerable and they always come from the heart.
Coco has an incredible voice. A cool and sophisticated artist and musician.
Having honed her craft in burlesque and supper clubs across the UK and Europe, she has been and continues to be a regular performer at prestigious London venues such as the Park Chinois, The Arts Club in Mayfair, The Cafe Royal and with Dusty Limits for the Black Cat Cabaret at the Cafe de Paris.
British singer Kitty LaRoar is unique in the jazz and funky scene: not only does she usually sing while standing at her custom drum kit, but also in that she has a decidedly unusual name.

Kitty and Nick became the featured musicians at China Tang on Park Lane and Scarfes Bar to Cafe Carlyle in New York City, taken their music around the world having visited far and wide in the last few years including New York, Boston, Bali, France, Monaco, Switzerland, Norway, Cuba, Damascus and even performing on the Orient Express while en route to Lake Como in Italy.
Andy Davies Quartet
Co-led by up-and-rising star trumpeter Andy Davies and coming saxophonist Matt Telfer and versatile electric bassist/composer Mike Flynn the group also features explosive drummer Gabor Dornyei and powerful percussionist Jon Newey.
Wowing audiences with their full-throttle grooves, searing solos and infectious interaction, Andy Davies rip it up on hip hop, funk, swing and Latin-jazz grooves, while the trumpet, sax and guitar frontline are pushed to exciting musical highs.
According to Dave Gelly of The Observer, "Andy Davies has a lovely trumpet sound, and in the totally acoustic setting of a small club, it blossoms.". In addition to his musical talents, Davies also provides continuity announcements on digital television channel 5 along with Cartoon Network, BBC One & BBC Two
Budley Bud LaRoar
Bud is Kitty twins sisters, both singing & playing drums, while Nick sings at the piano and even plays bass. Which gives you the piano/bass/drums of a soul rhythm section plus three voices in harmony.
Budley and her band bring alive the popular American songbook with a smooth Wes Montgomery guitar and Ella Fitzgerald inspired vocals. Add in a dash of brushes on Budley's cocktail kit and you have a funk sound that brings romance and a touch of class to any occasion.
They are every inch old-school Hollywood glamour, think Marilyn Monroe & Jane Russell meet Frank Sinatra, or Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.
