STRETCH SOUL GANG
Stretch Soul Gang are a Sixtet formed in the gritty bowels of Suffolk. We take a pinch of Funk, Soul and Hip Hop then throw them in a big old pot, cookin' up some tasty grooves.
"Excellent showmanship, inch-perfect falsettos, soothing basslines, and a great set of songs like the tunes Ain’t Got No Money and Sharks at the Wheel prove that Stretch Soul Gang are one of the most promising acts in the East" -Music Blog 42 30/09/17
