It started with The Funk… and The Voice.
Four years ago in the bosom of the Devonshire heartland, Electric Spank was born of a need for jazzy funkness and a desire to bring the hottest local musicians together for a journey of groove, vibe, love and hi-jinx.
With a solid rhythm section of drums and bass, the melodic interplay of two semi-acoustic guitars and a knockout single trumpet, it all comes together with the rich, powerful and intoxicating vocals of Lucy Rice.
Things started getting more serious a couple of years ago as the band picked up some quality support slots with such artists as Basement Jaxx, Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show, Lack of Afro and even the legendary Martha Reeves & The Vandellas.
Last winter the band fired up the tour bus and headed off to the French Alps for a tour of some of the hottest live venues in the famous ski resorts of Meribel, Morzine and Chamonix. They topped off this whirlwind tour with a fantastic appearance for Balcony TV in Chamonix (see it here) playing the single ‘Slam!’.
With a full year of UK gigs and appearances at the Cheltenham Jazz Festival and the Spice of Life jazz club in Soho under their belts, Electric Spank have honed their live set still further and will be returning to the French Alps with new drummer Tom, to consolidate their success from last season.
