Following support shows at four Funk & Soul Club events in 2017, Craig Charles tweeted “Daytoner are my new favourite band. Fact”. Such praise has resulted from the honing of their act at 30 gigs and festival shows in just over a year and in 2017 they enjoyed their first overseas shows and a range of unique events including the opening of the new Blue Whale exhibit in The Natural History Museum. Their line-up of brass, flute, keys, drums, bass & DJ fronted by a soul powerhouse, Lucy Richards, always ensures they fill the floor with their funk, soul and ska remixes and originals and in 2018 they’ll be performing a new set with tracks from their forthcoming debut band LP, one of which has already appeared on the new compilation CD ‘The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show Vol. 5’.
