******************************************************

 

Formed in 2011 by guitarist/composer JON SPEEDY in collaboration with saxophonist/horn arranger IAN BAILEY, THE BOOM YEH have become renowned for their explosive high energy live performances, joining the dots between Funk, Jazz, Soul, Rock, Afrobeat and more. Their debut album "Reverberations To Constellations" is released on October 7th 2013 on Cosmosium Records,

 

Core band members include some of the UK's finest sessions musicians – drummer JIMMY NORDEN (Bad Ass Brass/LTJ Bukem) bass player DAN SWAIN (Alice Russell/Quantic) and trombone player NICK MILLS (Mark Ronson/The Roots), with guest performers so far including vocalist AiNA ROXX, poet/vocalist ZENA EDWARDS, rapper/poet LYRIC L, vocalist ABDUL SHYLLON and Gambian Kora Master JALLY KEBBA SUSSO.

 

Inspired by funk rhythm sections of the 60's/70's like The Meters and The Headhunters, the band's horn led sound counterpoints artists such as Tower Of Power, Parliament and Youngblood Brass Band, interspersed with West African poly-rhythms, the jazz-rock fusion of Weather Report/Mahavishnu Orchestra and the contemporary soul of 4Hero and D'Angelo.

 

"Explosive Soulful Jazz-Infused Funk" (Time Out London)

 

"A riotous and rollicking romp in the realms of rootsy jazz-funk. Tough, muscular and musicianly" (Blues And Soul magazine)

 

"Top players, heavy grooves. An inspired fusion of JB's era funk meets Fela Kuti with a nod to Kool Herc" (Robert Strauss, Wax Recordings)
