Funky female singers front this 5-piece band of musicians putting an original twist on soul and funk. They cover artists like Aretha Franklin and Chic right up to modern soul stars like Jill Scott, Joss Stone and Snarky Puppy. The Bads also write their own original soulful tunes. Their strength lies in their musicality with plenty of smooth harmonies, percussion breakdowns and impressive solos.
