Many of the best new Funk and Soul bands come from the UK, especially the instrumental Funk bands. Oddly, I heard Simon, the drummer from The New Mastersounds, say in an interview that the British don’t care much for their music, though. Too bad.
Regardless, The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show on the BBC is one of the best places to turn when you want to discover exciting new Funk and Soul music, as well as get a lesson in old school Funk.
