Legendary jazz fusion/funk extravaganza The Headhunters arrive at Sage Gateshead on December 2nd.
Brought together by Herbie Hancock in the early 70’s, the internationally acclaimed group has had 40 years of crafting and perfecting the tastiest and grooviest jams.
Mixing together a concoction of many genres whilst blending in an array of classic and contemporary sounds, these elements, when melded together, create a sound the group have previously dubbed as ‘space funk’.
Their live sets are exceptional in terms of hard they groove and their incredible technical ability, utilising polyrhythms with complex chord progressions in a way most funk groups don’t typically dare to meddle with. No performance is the same either, with the group well known for their heavy interest and focus on improvisation.
Undertaking sounds that can be simply described as brave, adventurous and bold, The Headhunters are an integral part of the development and rise of jazz fusion.
Tickets, priced at £21.80 in advance, are available from sagegateshead.com.
