haggis-horns-bixton-gigOne of the finest funk bands this country has to offer in the Uk, The Haggis Horns!
They’e been tearing up dance floors with their northern funk sound by combining ass-shaking break-beats, afrobeat, soul and hip-hop.  They have released 3 albums “Hot Damn” (2007), “Keep On Movin” (2010), and “What Comes To Mind” (2015).  If your at a lose end I highly recommend that you head down to Brixton for some quality funky vibes.  Just make sure you have your dancing shoes on.
