“The beauty of music today is that you can find a diamond in the rough, or psychedelic mushrooms in the grass, whilst searching through the muck and mud that is the music industry. Enter GU-RU” (Flea Market Funk)
GU-RU is a trio comprising of keys, drums and bass. It is a “bouillabaisse of Cosmic funk, soul and Full-Tilt-Motor-Groove” (FMF), drawing inspiration from diverse artists such as The Doors, Return to Forever, Tame Impala and Herbie Hancock.
For the past decade members of GU-RU have performed worldwide, working with the likes of The Crazy World of Arthur Brown, Alabama 3 and Z-Star to name but a few.
The band’s upcoming second E.P, ‘Cat on The Howling Moon Records’, and has already been hailed a triumph by critics who describe it as “sounding rather like a young Jim Morrison…fabulous Fender Rhodes…lush horn textures…intergalactic synth accents” (Plunger) and “What these funk virtuosos decided to do is create they’re own version of a psych jazz funk and give us ‘Into The Light’, four radio tunes with enough catchy melodies to stick to your brain” (We are the last beatniks).
GU-RU are touring the U.K in early 2017, in support of ‘Into the Light’ which is out now on Cat on Howling Moon Records:

“94 Gunships were next up outside, and their set was funky, lighthearted, grizzly and heartfelt. The set was varied and intimate, whilst having some inspiring vibes bringing people to the front to dance. By this point I would stress I was feeling pretty tired having been at the festival a number of hours, but I still had a boogie alongside the rest of the packed out audience. The drums are rhythmic and relentless which is pulse raising (especially with the dancing) and combined with the Tom Waits style vocals and great instrumental parts, it was a brilliant band to have at that point in the festival.” Nottingham Live
“The gruffest blues to fall this side of the Trent” – Wire & Wool
“Some of the coolest shantys and ditties to emerge from a Notts band for a while. Lovely stuff ” – Farmyard
“What a band, what a band, what a band, what a mighty good band! 94 Gunships have taken Nottingham by storm over the last six months and sweet Joni Mitchell what a storm it has been! Houses have been flooded and new holes have been created to be filled in again! 94 Gunships will fill that hole in your heart with music co-written by the bands two front men! An opportunity to see a great new band who will most likely boom over the next year or so. Lyrics so catchy you will become a lyric-knowing fan geek after one performance! Come and see 94 Gunships and I promise you will enjoy it.” – Bradley Rice – Jamcafé

Homeless Shakespeare is a solo performer from Leicester, incorporating comedy, spontaneous slap bass pop guitar and whim into his already eclectic musical sets. The music itself delves into obscure stylistic cocktails, like gyp-hop and swing stomp. The theatrical elements of self commentary as a live performer have earned him a reputation in Leicester, a reputation that he would like to bring to new cities. Prepare for jazz, soul, rap, blues, puns and expulsive rants.”
