Norwich funk and soul band Mondatta Funk are set to perform at Norwich Arts Centre.

After a 10-year hiatus Mondatta Funk are back and set to bring another night of original/local funk and soul music to Norwich on June 8.

It was in 2009 that they put together their first 'Explosion' gig at Norwich Arts Centre which included a 12-piece line-up of some of Norfolk's finest musicians - from bands such as Killamonjambo, Speedometer and The Voxettes.

Drawing on influences from the likes of James Brown, Aretha Franklin and Sly and the Family Stone, the band gigged all across Norfolk and Suffolk during their former years (2004-2009).

With several members having since toured, released albums, had children and got married, this gig will celebrate their 10-year reunion with an another explosive line-up.

The evening will feature performances from Norwich guitarist Mark Howes, bassist Kieran Brennan and drummer Chris Griggs along with musicians from the original line-up. Other familiar faces include The Voxettes, Simon Jarrett on congas and sax, Andy 'Mojo' Robinson on keys and Sam Bramley on trumpet.
