Gene Dudley Group hits it

Fabulously funky hotness from WahWah45s posse... gritty as, groovy too. "The Gene Dudley Group represents an outpouring of deep soul and funk music from an obscenely talented 27 year-old multi-instrumentalist residing in North London, Gene Dudley.

Both tracks on the debut release from this one-man band were recorded in Gene's bedroom studio and feature him on trumpet, saxophone, drums, bass, guitar and piano. Both are available now as a free download while we also have beautiful heavyweight 7" vinyl - officially released on April 29th.

Fans of labels like Truth & Soul and Daptone will relish these sonorous soulful offerings, and will no doubt be hotly anticipating the debut long-player, due for release this (northern) summer on Wah Wah 45s.

In the live arena, rather than trying to play all the instruments himself, Gene deploys a quartet of top notch young musicians to help him out (whilst Gene mixes it up between bass and keys throughout the set) as witnessed at the recent Hot 8 Brass Band gig in London, The Gene Dudley Group's debut live show."
