EDDIE ROBERTS - Guitar
Arriving from Wales in Leeds at age 18 to study Jazz at Leeds College of Music, Eddie soon found he was more interested performing and finding his musical voice, than in the college work. He brought together the best players in town and set up his first band The Jazz Mailmen. By 1997 Eddie was fronting The Mastersounds. Eddie, with drummer Simon Allen, tried out various other players before finding Bob birch and Pete Shand to play Hammond and bass respectively. In 1999 The New Mastersounds formed, initially to be resident at The Cooker, the weekly club night Eddie was promoting in Leeds. This band has been taking care of Eddie's funk requirements ever since, but his jazz voice still had to find an outlet. Tonight he brings together his funk and jazz stylings with some of the scene's heavy-hitters for EDDIE ROBERTS ALL-STARS: End of the World Funk Party.
