Soul Riot


Lead Guitar, Keyboard.


"Bringing you the most soulful of funk and the funkiest of soul, where rhythmic beats meet the croons of a funk-bound female, you will find yourself dancing and swaying to every note of Soul Riot!"

We are a 4-piece soul & funk covers band fronted by Debbie Smith and backed by regulars from the soul, funk, rock, blues and jazz music scenes - drummer John Bicknell, bassist Andy Culham and guitarist Andrew Furlanis. On request, we are available as a 5-piece or 6-piece with our sensational keys and sax players.

As experienced gigging musicians, from weddings to festivals, we came together to form Soul Riot in 2014 to share our love of everything from 70s standards by Stevie Wonder and Wilson Picket through to modern soul revivals from Bruno Mars and Amy Winehouse.
