Helen McDonald's FUTURE GROOVE

Derby-born singer Helen McDonald opens our new season with her band FUTURE GROOVE a rare groove psychedelic jazz funk band, that does its thing regularly at some of London’s hippest underground clubs. That thing being what funk was invented for which is to throw down the baddest licks, tightest rhythms and the rawest vocals. With music ranging from Roy Ayers to Minnie Ripperton, from Gil Scott Heron and Nina Simone to their own original compositions Future Groove know how to shake the roof. Lead vocalist Helen McDonald’s powerful and gritty vocals anchor the journey from jazz to funk to soul to blues.
