The Filthy Six are the most exciting, authentic Soul Jazz outfit in the UK today and have established themselves as one of the most electric live acts around. Their soaring horns, blistering guitar and gut-wrenching Hammond are fuelled by one of the hardest grooving rhythm sections east of New York, producing a hip-shakingly powerful mixture of jazz, funk and boogaloo totally in keeping with the finest traditions of the Blue Note sound. Led by trumpeter Nick Etwell (Tom Jones, David Axelrod, Beck) this crack unit of erudite musical gunslingers have graced the bands of some of the hottest names in music including Amy Winehouse, Jill Scott, Dionne Warwick, Pee Wee Ellis, Jack White, Mark Ronson, Galactic and the James Taylor Quartet to name a few. These instrumental groove merchants fuse boundless energy and incredible musicianship to create tight, funky music that moves the mind, body and soul whilst simultaneously blowing the roof off every venue they play!
2012 saw the bands second release for Acid Jazz records – The Fox – garner plaudits from scenesters and critics alike, including ‘Album of the week’ on JazzFM. An 11 date tour of the UK and Ireland followed, furthering their reputation as a live act not to be missed. 2014 will see the release of their third album followed by touring in the UK and Europe, as well as their first shows in the USA.
