Aretha & the Soul Sisters 

with Lisa Grand & the Jezebel Sextet 


Experience the music of Aretha Franklin and James Brown’s Funky Divas played live by one of the most exciting funk and soul bands in the UK. This soul power sensation pairs Lisa Grand on vocals with Hammond and horns from the Jezebel Sextet.


You’ll hear Aretha hits such as Respect, I Say A Little Prayer, Think and Natural Woman, alongside funk classics from James Brown’s favourite female singers Lyn Collins, Marva Whitney, Vicki Anderson and Sugar Pie DeSanto – all performed by an incredible 8 piece band. Plus new music and highlights from the band’s debut album Lift It Up.

She wrote and produced her debut EP Paper Airplanes in 2019 and has performed at the Jazz Cafe, 606 Club, Surround Sounds Festival, Caffe Concerto and Soul Stripped Sessions  in London, Comedia (Brighton), and Lula Lounge (Toronto.)



With over 20 years experience on the live circuit, The Jezebel Sextet has worked with singers such as Reuben Richards, Mudibu (JP Bimeni and The Blackbelts), Sir Joe Quarterman (Free Soul), Rev Chunky (The New Mastersounds), Liz Swain (Heritage Orchestra), Paris Ruel, Sulene Fleming (Brand New Heavies) and Randa Khamis (Freestyle Records). They’ve played all over Europe and been featured on BBC 6 music and LBC radio. They appear on Freestyle Records’ Fresh Out The Box compilation and released their debut album Lift It Up in 2012 produced by Leigh Gracie (Speedometer).
