Soulful Classics are the staple. Upbeat funky numbers bring the vibe and on the spot improvisation, 'true' stories and acid jazz flights make the cherry on top go POP! Come ready to laugh and dance.

Project F: This new band has done so well in its first year. I don’t think we have played a venue that hasn’t wanted to re book us. The high has to have been supporting 'The Original Rammer Jammer' Geno Washington.
We started 2014 with the exciting launch of our a monthly Sunday Soul Sessions at the Gulbenkian Cafe.
Also following the successful introduction to Margate during 2013's One Love festival Project F have launched their upbeat soul brand at Margate’s Britannia pub and Morgans bar with gigs and party nights scheduled throughout the year.
“We really try not to oversell ourselves in each area and will only play one or two venues in each town”.
This band is really a train set. But don't let that fool you. It’s a really great train. Although each band member has another profession but the band is a full-time passion.
