The Excitements


We're working on it! Meanwhile, check out the upcoming Scottish Jazz Weekend programme here!

“Hot, Hot, Hot Rhythm And Soul”. A heady cocktail of old school soul and authentic, gritty r’n'b, delivered straight from the hip with a whole lot of style and attitude. The Excitements kick on where Etta James, Ike and Tina Turner and James Brown left off in the 1960’s, with an instantly classic sound and a rare vintage sensibility. Live, they’re a force of nature, with their vibrant lead singer Koko-Jean Davis, whose explosive vocals “provide a straight-to-the-point antidote of full-pelt soul and R&B” (Mojo).
