Momentum are a six-piece, contemporary jazz-fusion band with three well received albums already to their name; the much heralded "What's the Vibe?", "Action to New York", and "Singularity". Their songs are an eclectic mix of Jazz, Flamenco, Tango, Calypso, and Reggae.
This is the first time the band has been back to The Bull's Head since the start of the pandemic, providing an ideal opportunity to revisit their exciting brand of world music and jazz.
The lineup features the ubiquitous Yosi Marshall on saxes, clarinet, and flute. The amazing Johhny P on bass, the gorgeous vocals of Lonette Charles, and the lovely Caroline Cooper on Keys, talented Paul the Viskinator on guitar, and Lyn the Skin on drums and percussion.
Momentum always attract enthusiastic audienceswherever they play, constantly performing new material at every show, always surprising the crowds with their inventiveness.
"Momentum's jazzy, bluesy, latiny tunes will get your feet shuffling and leave you smiling. Time spent with them always put me in a great mood..." Beverley D'Silva - The Sunday Times
