In 2000 Kick Horns decided to put a band together to play some favourite tunes reflecting the wide range of their musical passions: from R'n'B to Funk, African to Reggae, New Orleans to Memphis.
The first gig was at the Crystal Palace Tavern in Deptford, where a hat was passed around to pay the band. A few gigs down the road, they progressed to Smollensky's, promoted by Jazz FM, and the Royal Festival Hall as part of the London Jazz Festival.
Now you can buy the first album The Other Foot, capturing the huge soulful sound of the Kick Horns teamed up with a fierce young rhythm section.

Roddy Lorimer - Trumpet & Flugelhorn
Tim Sanders - Tenor & Soprano Sax
Simon C Clarke - Alto & Baritone Sax, Flutes
Annie Whitehead - Trombone
