King Bee play live Funk / Jazz Funk The Funk Live Music & Concerts



Originating from Newcastle King Bee are one of the funkiest bands on the planet , we are excited to announce that they are playing Bristol Zed Alley, May 2019 for the launch party of a brand new funk and soul club , the Funk Train King Bee has been providing unstoppable grooves since 2011

Boasting an unorthodox line-up which includes sax, flute, trumpet, synthesisers, and vibraphone, the original jazz/funk fusion sounds of this seven piece Newcastle based band have recently taken on a more edgy electronic and on occasion psychedelic element

Inspired originally by jazzfunk legends Roy Ayers, Donald Byrd and Herbie Hancock, King Bee has established itself as one the finest exponents of the genre in the UK

" These guys are consummate musicians and do not take prisoners"..Blues and Soul

Tracks from the album "Return of the Dave" and "Jellyman Funk" had national radio support from Mike Chadwick (Jazz FM), Craig Charles (BBC 6 Music) and Robert Elms (BBC London) amongst many others

" A revelation!"...Craig Charles BBC 6 Music

The follow up release "Bee to the Flower" featured a remix by renowned French DJ/Producer The ReflexBoth tracks made an impact , catching the ear of ex Radio One and JazzFM DJ Robbie Vincent who included it in his comeback radio programme for Christmas 2017, and was subsequently play-listed for the Ronnie Scott's Radio Show on JazzFM in early 2018
