The Haggis Horns – Take It Back (feat Doc Brown)
The infamous Haggis Horns hardly need any introduction, having been at the forefront of the UK funk scene since they came to our attention as a horn section on the legendary album “Keb Darge Presents The New Mastersounds” in 2001. They then went on to form their own full band in 2004 and have four funkfuelled albums under their belt, “Hot Damn! , “Keep On Movin” (First Word Records) “What Comes To Mind” (Haggis Records) and recently released “One Of These Days (Haggis Records) and have been rocking crowds the world over for years winning fans with their distinctive northern funk sound combining ass-shaking break-beats, afrobeat, soul and hip-hop.
The members of The Haggis Horns have performed and recorded with the likes of Jamiroquai, John Legend & The Roots, Amy Winehouse, Corinne Bailey Rae, Take That, Mark Ronson, Martha Reeves, Roots Manuva, Lou Donaldson, Elbow, Nightmares On Wax, Dennis Coffey, Adele, Finley Quaye, Robbie Williams, Morcheeba, Duran Duran, Craig Charles Presents The Fantasy Funk Band, The Cinematic Orchestra, Lisa Stansfield, Kano, Estelle, Lily Allen, KT Tunstall & Snowboy, to name a few!
Mark Ronson was not wrong describing these guys as the best horn section in the world.
Catch them at Nottingham’s brand new venue Peggy’s Skylight, and at The Spot Club in Liverpool this weekend.
