Brother Strut are a funk/soul band who have played with Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, Amy Winehouse & performed on records that sold 1/2 billion copies.

The band was formed in 2012 by producer & sax player Stevie Jones, after previously been pitching pop songs to satisfy A&R men, who he felt were just churning out the same old stuff. This, Jones soon learnt, was not the route to happiness and decided to abandon all other music production projects and work on something that was driven solely by his love of funk, blues and, in particular, American soul music of the 1960’s and ‘70’s.

With this basic concept in his head, Jones set out to find some of the best, and certainly the funkiest players in the world to make an album - and he succeeded spectacularly, recruiting Steve Pearce (bass), Frankie Tontoh (drums), Otha Smith (electric guitar), Melvin Duffy (electric guitar/pedal steel) and Andrew Murray (piano).  They  just released their debut album ‘First Strut Is The Deepest’ in 2013.

Their brand new album ‘What We Got Together’ is out now and will be supported by a tour in 2017 dropping into KOKO on Sunday 26 February
