JAMAL THOMAS BAND
When you ask the multi-talented drummer/producer and composer of some of the worlds greatest Funk & R’n’B formations Jamal Thomas why he’s turned his attention to singing, he will lay it down as such: ”To uplift this planet through music and lyrics to let love rule”.
After 30 years of performing
world wide with artists like Maceo Parker (James Brown, Prince), the SOS Band, Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton) and producing team Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (Janet Jackson, Pink) Jamal Thomas has seen the limelight long enough to know where the soul of music is born. And to give rhythm a voice just made sense.
The Jamal Thomas Band is a Jazz-influenced European Funk group, combined with the R'n'B experience of the famous US Drummer from Macon, Georgia. It delivers a sensational mixture of old-school funk and new-school soul excitement and raw energy to groove you through the seat of your soul!
The new album "Funk Don't Move" will be released in the spring of 2018 featuring Chuck Leavell (Rolling Stones) and Rodney 'Skeet' Curtis (Maceo Parker/ Parliament Funkadelic).
"The Jamal Thomas Band is Funk with a twist, this is a new direction, feel good music!" - Fred Wesley
