Original songbased C21st Jazz
The Fabulous Red Diesel are a song based original 4 piece from Hastings. They have just supported The James Taylor Quartet on the first leg of his recent tour. 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.
