The Hornstars. Funky. Danceable. Quirky (have you seen that video?). While they may not take themselves too seriously, they are serious about creating a funky good time. The Hornstars will put the cut in your strut and the glide in your stride.   

The Hornstars sound is big, brassy and bold. The lineup is fronted by the charismatic Clancy Cullen a jazz-trained vocalist with undeniable stage presence. The horn section - Daniel Bardan (trumpet), Bruce Cousins (trombone), Russell B Myers (tenor sax) adds the sass and dance moves that only live horns can bring. The rhythm section - Joey Mount (drums), Mike Holloway (bass), Peter Bonett (keys), Gareth Durant (guitar) and Eric Morand (alto sax and percussion) drive the the funky beat. Each adds their own influences to the mix. Jazz, blues, soul, reggae - it may not all be funk as we know it, but it is definitely funky.
