The New Mastersounds have been delighting audiences with their infectious brand of funky soul-jazz since they formed in Leeds, UK in 1999. For the first five years of the band’s career they were regulars at the Jazz Café in London, before they began to turn heads on the funk scene in the US, where guitarist/producer/bandleader Eddie Roberts now lives. For over a decade now they have been a staple act of the late-night scene during New Orleans’ annual Jazz Fest. Though they have collaborated over the years with such musical luminaries as Maceo Parker, Fred Wesley, Corinne Bailey Rae, Art Neville, Bernard Purdie and Lou Donaldson, they are at their best on stage as a tightly-packed quartet – bass, drums, guitar and Hammond organ - firing scorching funk grooves off each other and feeding off the energy of the dancers in the front row.
The band tours in support of their twelfth studio album, “Renewable Energy”, released April 2018 on One Note Records.

The 4 Korners
With influences from Chick Corea Elektric Band, Dave Weckl Band, Yellowjackets and Tribal Tech, The 4 Korners have completed their second album titled "Portal of Gold" released through Rope-a-Dope Records on October 28th, 2016. This brotherhood started with Clarence Hill (Keys), James Thompson (Bass) and Isaac Thompson (Guitar) around the late 90's early 2000's. Jerrod Sullivan (Drums) joined the band in 2014 and has been a great addition to the band. They aspire to reignite the music scene with their passionate, high energy sound of original live instrumental music. They put their hearts and souls into every piece that they compose and their audiences always feel it. Although they are in the jazz fusion genre, they prefer to call it "Journey Music," encouraging the listener to take a musical joyride from start to finish. Just let your mind run free and enjoy the ride as you listen to the sound of
The 4 Korners!
