Dan Burnett is a world-class singer and multi-instrumental musician. It’s in his blood.

He was spoon-fed soul, blues, funk, and rock music from an early age, and began learning to play after receiving a keyboard for his 3rd birthday. With his mother’s encouragement and father’s guidance, before his teens Dan was playing gigs throughout Yorkshire in his dad’s blues band – and from then on live performance became a way of life.

Kyla's voice remains a stunning example of the soul singer's art: turning up the heat by degrees, lulling and charming before unleashing emotional catharsis, and blurring the distinction between pleasure and pain like the soul greats of old. Whether fronting the mighty Kyla Brox Band, or harnessing undiluted soul power in a duo with musical and life partner Danny Blomeley, Kyla Brox is without doubt the most authentic UK blues and soul singer of her generation.

Straight Eight's repertoire is a well chosen blend of soul and dance classics, turning the clock back to the heyday of Wilson Pickett and Otis Redding. The band kick new life into many songs including Knock On Wood, Everybody and Mustang Sally. Although mainly from the 60's, there are songs and surprises from later decades - everyone's favourite gets a look in! Formed in 1990, Straight Eight, an exciting Soul and R & B band promise a highly enjoyable show appealing to all. With a distinctive full-blooded horn section, initially the band played classics from the golden era of Soul, including tracks made popular in the 'Blues Brothers' and 'Commitments' movies. More recently, they have extended the repertoire by applying their special treatment to funkier numbers from the seventies to the noughties, along with some gems that you'd forgotten!
