Smoove & Turrell are returning to the Boatyard! Tongue and Groove favourites and one of the UK’s finest funk and soul acts last rocked our rafters in 2013, the sell out performance was one of our finest nights.

They have a vintage sound with an edge sharpened in contemporary reality, both musically and lyrically, pioneers of sweet soul music. This year has seen the release of a very special album, Solid Brass – Ten Years of Northern Funk.

“To say Smoove & Turrell are one of the greatest modern soul bands to emerge from the UK would be an epic understatement”- CRAIG CHARLES, BBC 6Music

“Shining the torch for modern British soul music” – TREVOR NELSON BBC Radio 2
