LIVE: MF ROBOTS
Dynamic duo Jan Kincaid and Dawn Joseph, who met while performing in legendary band Brand New Heavies. Kincaid was a founder member, drummer and main songwriter with the pioneering acid jazz band – responsible for some of the UK’s biggest R&B/soul/funk hits, scoring 16 top forty singles and over 2 million album sales – while Joseph joined later as a featured vocalist.
The creative spark between Kincaid and Joseph soon lead to the duo writing and creating music
together that quickly took on a life and flavour of its own. A full body of work soon organically
emerged and M.F. Robots was born in 2016. Their combined wealth of experience has given the duo a lot to draw on; Jan’s strong production and songwriting skills in genres including soul, funk, jazz, hip hop, rock, reggae, latin, pop and electronic, alongside Dawn’s extensive interest in music and fashion – designing her own stage clothes and performing as the go-to backing vocalist (and sometimes guitarist or bass player) for legendary artists including Rod Stewart, Phil Collins, Michael Buble, Cee-Lo, Craig David and Rick Astley.
MF Robots revamp and renew the classic production values and songwriting standards of the
golden age to create timeless contemporary classics. Their music combines an eclectic plethora
of musical styles including hard funk, electronic, acid jazz, smooth soul, and pop sensibilities to
form their unique sound.
This event is strictly 18+
