To celebrate 10 years of making music together, London’s own soul/funk outfit Mamas Gun are putting on two very special gigs at Camdens JAZZ CAFÉ.
September 13th sees the band presenting all the best stuff from the last 10 years plus exclusive brand new material from their forthcoming album due for release early 2018. September 14th is a one-off MAMAS GUN + special musical guests. This evening will see the band performing an exclusive set of live collaborations with an array of very special guests and musical friends.
Mamas Gun are a musically diverse, feisty and fabulous five-piece band fronted by singer/composer/producer ANDY PLATTS. Andy is joined by keyboard player DAVE “EIGHTIES” OLIVER who’s musical education has embraced everything from barbershop singing to French horn and now includes jazz, soul and Cuban playing. Alongside stand out guitarist TERRY “SPILLER” LEWIS who studied music in London and now resides on UK’s south coast and who’s musical journey has seen him work with legendary Marvin Gaye/Minnie Ripperton/Michael Jackson producer Leon Ware, Lewis Taylor, The Impressions (the late Curtis Mayfield’s former group), Jamie Woon, The Valentine Brothers, Jean Carne to name a few. CHRIS “NEW BOY” BOOT took over the band’s drum stool in 2016, bringing with him a career everywhere from Abby Road to Glastonbury and all over the world and with the likes of Florrie, Moya, Lone and Bacchus. Finally CAMERON ‘the Mounty’ DAWSON is the youngest – barely able to drink in America, but already an old soul in his musical capability and contributions to the energetic and memorable stage shows that Mamas Gun never fail to deliver.
