The Fabulous Red Diesel are a song based original 4 piece from Hastings. They are multi instrumentalists, bringing trumpet ,tuba and flute to an already full sounding keys/guitar/double bass/drums combo. The most astounding thing about them is the woman at the front , she has a ”voice that you could listen to all day,” -verbal quote, Rye Jazz Festival 2018. They play in a variety of styles, latin, soul,funk, swing ,blues and Brubeck-style jazz, but they are never far from their gypsy roots. Imagine a musical circus, with excellent musicianship and totally infectious tunes, sung by a retro sounding Joplin/Streisand type of vocal, and you may be in the ball park.
They have released 5 albums on Priestess Records, and are about to release number 6- Sparkly Bird, the soundtrack to their original theatre show.
They are based in Hastings, but play across England and Europe.
