THE INTERNATIONAL RYE JAZZ FESTIVAL -Ian Bowden
''We were delighted to have The Fabulous Red Diesel headline at the 2016 Rye Jazz & Blues Festival this year.
An amazing and original band with excellent musicianship, outstanding arrangements and infectious grooves that got the crowd to their feet demanding more! We very much look forward to working with them in the future and I cannot recommend Kat and the band more highly – Until next time guys, you are the best!''
Kevin Ickson V2-''Very good, very creative, really unusual, 9 out of 10''
THE A AND R FACTORY -Llwelyn Screen.
The Fabulous Red Diesel return with a jazz-filled gem with ‘Mama Josie Said – The Queensbury House SessionS‘.
The Fabulous Red Diesel are all about original off the wall jazz-fusion, funky mayhem, flute and sparkly tuba soul. This style of music is such a fine way to get over 2020 due to the authenticity that the band shows. You don’t get too many bands like this anymore. The whole band seems perfectly in sync and play with such joy and happiness. After starting to play together in Hastings in 2006, this eclectic gaggle of musical inventors have been creating their own brand of jazz and acoustic soul that lights up the stage and our hearts. This is fine music that can be enjoyed by all humans- young and old.
This is a conversation between the amazing singer and Mama Josie , which happened while they were working some harmonies out at the rehearsal space in Queensbury House.
The Fabulous Red Diesel are a fine jazz band with lots of offer as they cruise in with a stunning song called ‘Mama Josie Said – . I love this song and this has calmed down my heart in this world full of madness.
Stream here via the Soundcloud link and enjoy the jazzy vibes.

SCOTT DOANE- SUN AND MOON FESTIVAL 2016 The Fabulous Red Diesels played for us this year at the Sun and Moon festival, lifting us joyously onto the dance floor with their funky beats, great vocals and animated performances (especially Kat, the lead singer, who is clearly one of our own!). The brass section added a special touch, and the obviously talented musicians created a truly "fabulous" vibe that kept us dancing through the night. They'll be welcome back next year for sure!

' 'Funked up and delicious. Gorgeous vocals interweaving serious groove. From the phat to the sublime. Kat, Wil and the band have been playing Small World in various guises since our very first event... deservedly so.''
The Guardian, ''Ethereal floating vocals''

The Fabulous Red Diesel was our headline act at Northiam Bonfire Society’s Midsummer Festival this month, and everyone was completely knocked out, they were just amazing and totally original, no cover versions here! Thank you, each and every one of you, we enjoyed it so much and your fabulous vibe meant folk stayed around, helping us to raise over £2000 for this year’s Bonfire Celebration in Northiam (Sat 8 October for anyone who’s interested!). We love you!
