Craig Charles B&W.jpg

"These guys have got all the licks! Soul Jazz how we like it; rough, rugged and played by guys totally on top of their game. A very exciting addition to the UK Scene " 

- The Craig Charles Funk And Soul Show, BBC 6Music 

 

“ ***** ” - 3 Weeks Magazine, Edinburgh Festival

 

* Best newcomer nominees * (2009) Marlborough Jazz Festival

 

"Led with brassy authority by trumpeter Nick Etwell this punchy band recalled the muscular funk of Jimmy Smith and Brother Jack McDuff... dazzling guitar breaks and appropriately booting sax solos went down a treat! " (4/5) - London Evening Standard  

 

"Their heady mix of soul jazz flavours and bad-ass boogaloo, wrapped up with a vibrant energy and sense of humour keeps the crowd hooked from the moment they walk on stage. A sure fire bet every time!" - Dom Servini (Wah Wah 45s / Shook) - London Jazz Festival

 

"The music of The Filthy Six is one of those rare sonic treats that effortlessly alternates between smart, soulful melodicism and gutbucket funk without missing a beat! Their recent show in Birmingham was one of the highlights of my concert calendar this past spring and was a real showcase for their ultra-hip, modern take on what is - for all intents and purposes - a very retro sound. One of my new favourites! "

- Lee Shook, host of 'The Audiovore' - Birmingham Mountain Radio AL

 

"With considerable power, the Six produce uncomplicated, unequivocally entertaining music, and in Etwell in particular have a frontman capable of eloquent, punchy, hard-hitting solos that hark back to an era graced by the likes of Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard " - Vortex Jazz Club, London
