LEGENDARY HEROES Short Info

We're LEGENDARY HEROES, a UK based and well - established band with an excellent track record. We are a great live band who love to play - our emphasis is on entertaining and we’d fit in well with just about any type of gig. We've played a lot of clubs, pubs and festivals and we always bring fans with us. We are an 8 piece band with 4 in the Brass section, and 4 of us are female. We have lots of great original material - our music is a unique blend of Northern Soul and funky, poppy, rhythms which we call Rhythm and Soul.

In 2013, we released our first album length CD: ’We are and always will be… Legendary Heroes’ - which you can hear here: http://legendaryheroes.bandcamp.com . The album launch was at the fabulously cool Hoochie Coochie Club in Newcastle and we packed the place. A leading national music review magazine said this about our album:

LEGENDARY HEROES - We Are and Always Will Be ... "What a belter of a debut album! ... They operate as an eight-piece and are as tight as Chris Hoy’s cycle shorts ... They knock out soul music which is built on a strong rhythm section and plenty of hooks, and they all fit together like clockwork. Energetic, upbeat and steeped in passion, this is joyous stuff."

A leading national newspaper, The Guardian, described the album as: ‘Brilliant brass-driven soul, funk and pop’

And another famous magazine published a feature article about us with this excellent review:

“Their sound is a gloriously sweaty swirl of rhythm, blues heart and soul and remains just so damn infectious. Catch them live and get yourself acquainted with some real heroes.”

We have had a great 12 months playing lots of gigs at different venues nationwide - and everywhere we went we rocked the place. In April we released a 4 track EP and played to some big audiences on our Summer tour of festivals and pubs in London, Buckinghamshire and Yorkshire. As well as these dates, a core section of the band played in some beautifully discreet and intimate venues in Andalusia, Spain. We also won the regional finals of the Global Battle of the Bands competition which led to us playing in the National Finals at the famous 100 Club in London where we finished in the top three.

We really want to play more gigs in Europe and we hope that if you find our style and music interesting that you'll get in touch with us.
