Hire The Hitmen

When Andrea Marr and the Funky Hitmen did their first gig in 2013 they decided it was too good not to continue playing together. Now, you will get the chance to see them perform one of those killer shows live at Davey’s Hotel on October 5.

Part of the relaunched Sunday Soultrain, the group is a larger, eight piece version of the Andrea Marr Band, which is more regularly on show. After uniting to record an album, Sass and Brass, in 2012, the explosion of soul and funk was too great to ignore. The result was music reminiscent of the Memphis Sound with the raw energy of James Brown combined with Andrea’s feel-good, high energy original blues and soul.

Andrea has earned her place in the thriving Melbourne blues scene having performed since 1999 in all parts of Australia, winning a bag full of awards along the way. She has been crowned Female Blues Artist of the year on two occasions in 2002 and 2009 and has represented Australia at the International Blues Festival in the US.

In the Funky Hitmen, she is surrounded by some of the finest musicians in the country. The show combines Andrea’s love of soul, funk, blues and gospel with high energy booty shakin’ soul & funk classics. The octo-group also play some strong original material which is sure to get you singing, dancing and begging for more.

Be sure not to miss Andrea Marr and the Funky Hitmen play one of their rare gigs together in this free event at Davey’s Hotel, 510 Nepean Hwy Frankston, October 5 from 2.30pm. For more info go to www.daveys.com.au.
