We had our monthly installment of the funkiest band in the UK ’Redtenbacher’s Funkestra’. With this all star line up consisting of Stefan Redtenbacher – bass, bandleader and writer, Mike Sturgis – drums, Eran Kendler – guitar, Rob Taggart – keys, Jim Hunt – tenor saxophone and Sid Gauld – trumpet, its a night that I can only describe as ‘AMAZING’. I could try and talk to you about these guys but who could do it better then the man himself Stefan Retenbacher. Watch this exclusive in-depth interview which talks about all the members and the bands unique way of recording.
