Dogtooth is a up and coming Scottish mod rock band. Playing their own brand of energetic Mod rock and covering an eclectic mix of punk classics from legendary bands The Jam, The Clash and The Who, the young three-piece are taking the UK gig scene by storm.
The Foo Birds are an 8-piece funk/soul band formed in Edinburgh in 2011, having met through the Edinburgh University Jazz Orchestra.
Frequent performances around Edinburgh, including at The Jazz Bar, one of Scotland’s most popular music venues, led to the development of a devoted fan base and strong online presence. This was augmented by UK tours and the release of their self-titled debut album in 2013.
The Foo Birds have since toured Belgium and Croatia and enjoyed multiple plays on BBC Radio Scotland. Festival appearances include playing the Kelburn Garden Party for the past four summers and playing for the BBC at the Edinburgh Festivals. They have recorded numerous live sessions and in 2015 released their eagerly anticipated E.P. ‘Round The Corner’ that features four new original tracks and two re-imagined covers (available on iTunes, Spotify and at https://thefoobirds.bandcamp.com).
The Foo Birds creatively blend classic jazz/soul/blues tricks with neo-funk influences and a shameless lick of pop. The quality musicianship possessed by every one of its players is reflected in the intricate songwriting, contagious melodies, dance-inducing grooves and energetic live performances.
DAS CONTRAS played hundreds of concerts and festivals from Auld Reekie to New York. Live highlights include shows with Ozomatli, Acoustic Ladyland, Terry Callier, Marlena Shaw & Candi Staton and festivals in the US & Europe. After years of solid gigging and touring, Das Contras debut album was released in Spring 2010. Das Contras 2nd album Highest Low was released in December 2012 and won Album of the Year at Scottish Jazz Awards 2013.
