The Brand New Heavies to play Stroud gig

Pioneers of the London Acid Jazz scene, The Brand New Heavies are stopping by Stroud this December.

The band have been responsible for some of the UK's biggest R&B / Soul tracks, scoring 16 top 40 singles including 'Dream On Dreamer', 'Never Stop', 'Dream Come True', 'Midnight at the Oasis', 'Brother Sister', 'You are the Universe', 'Sometimes', 'Stay this Way' and 'You've Got A Friend', as well as over two million album sales.

The Brand New Heavies translated their love for the funk grooves of the 1970s into a sophisticated sound that carried the torch for classic soul in an era dominated by hip-hop.

Eventually adding a brass section, the Brand New Heavies built a cult following throughout the London club circuit, surviving the shift that saw the rare groove scene fade in the wake of acid house.

You can catch them at the Stroud Subscription Rooms on Wednesday, December 15.

Tickets are priced at £26.50-£28.50 and are available at The Brand New Heavies
