Manchester born heavy-funk/soul band The Plimp Souls are brought together by one vision: to give Manchester a fresh blend of authentic raw funk. This tight 9-piece ensemble bring a new twist to the scene.
Their goal is to break the mould of the usual "Funk'n'Soul band" and play a live selection of the rarest covers & rawest originals; compiled from the vaults of DJ Simon Ham’s (You Dig?) 45’s record collection.
With their members having performed and recorded for many years in some of the UK’s most iconic venues, The Plimp Souls' superb sound, infectious grooves and well sculpted songs leave their audiences shrieking for more.
A night with The Plimp Souls is guaranteed to get your feet shuffling and inspire you to get more funk in your life.
