The Filthy Six

Led by trumpeter Nick Etwell (Tom Jones, Foo Fighters, Mumford & Sons) this crack unit of erudite musical gunslingers have played with some of the biggest names in music, including Amy Winehouse, Mavis Staples, Jill Scott, Beck, Mark Ronson, Jack White, Dionne Warwick, Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, David Axelrod, Ronnie Spector, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Basement Jaxx, Spiritualized, 4hero, Atomic Bomb Band, Madness, Galactic and the James Taylor Quartet to name but a few. From their literal 'underground' beginnings down at the infamous Tatty Bogle Club, deep beneath the heart of London's Soho, the band built up a faithful following at their monthly 'Thursday Boogaloo' sessions in the mid 00's. Moving above ground and into venues across London and beyond they gained notoriety for the intensity of their live shows. This reputation took them up and down the country and out into the festival arena, spreading the Filthy gospel even further afield as they went. After signing to Acid Jazz Records in 2009 the boys released their debut LP 'The Filthy Six' in June 2010, attracting new fans and rave reviews in the process. In 2014 the band completed 3 Tours over 6 months in the US. 2015 brought the release of 2 short films documenting their Filthy fun and frolics across The South (with the help of their good friends at Stetson), the completion of their 3rd studio album, a series of monthly nights at the Brooklyn Bowl, London, and a run of After-show gigs for the Mumford & Sons 'Gentlemen Of The Road' festivals in the US. March 2016 saw the release of a third studio album on Acid Jazz Records - More Filth - with tours in both the US and UK through April and May. Undoubtedly their Filthiest yet, the record was scientifically engineered to have you moving and grooving so hard you'll burn holes in not 1 but 2 pairs of boots and a large chunk of that dance floor too! 2017 started with a little jaunt to Finland and the home of Santa Claus (yes, he's real), continued with shows in the UK, Spain and the USA, and finished up with 'live' track Mr Morris appearing on Freestyle Records' release - Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club : Vol 5.
