The Lefties are one of the most in-demand bands of the international funk community. Like Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings & Breakestra in the USA and Quantic Soul Orchestra in England, the Lefties are bringing back raw funk and soul live and on record.

Lefties Soul Connection are playing clubs and festivals all over Europe. Like Paradiso, Melkweg, Bitterzoet (all Amsterdam), Supernatural festival (Utrecht), Jazz Cafe (London), Jelly Jazz (Newquay), Juicy Beats Festival (Dortmund), Unique (Düssseldorf), Lovelite (Berlin), Stadtgarten (Cologne), Balthasar (Marseille), Sunslice Festival (Toulon), Dynomite (Brussels) and many more.

Their limited 45 singles on Melting Pot Music are hammered by funk and hip-hop DJs alike. Including people like Keb Darge, J.Rocc, Egon, Quantic and Snowboy.

“Hutspot” features the complete Lefties backcatalouge for the first time on CD and LP. Featuring sought-after songs like “Doin’ The Thing”, “V2”, “Bouncing Ball” and “Organ Donor”.

The Lefties will tour Germany, France, England and Holand from March to May, promoting the album.

The Lefties are currently in the studio working on their second, all-new album, slated for a fall/winter 06 release.
