“I like!” Jazzie B OBE – Soul2Soul

“…the best group I’ve seen in this country since . . . ever…. United Vibrations are genuinely the most important band to come out of the UK since the big rock bands of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.” Daniel Crosby – Jazz Reloaded

United Vibrations are a four-piece band based in southeast London, bringing their
unique style of 12Tone, Mulatto, Afro-Punk and Jazz-fusion music, influenced by Fela
Kuti and Sun Ra, to a global audience. The band consists of the Dayes brothers and
Wayne Francis.

United Vibrations have played alongside Seun Kuti, Tony Allen, Soothsayers, Electric
Jalaba, Afriquoi, the Destroyers and the Resonators, as well as working with Aloe
Blacc and recording at Maida Vale Studios with Gilles Peterson. Having released
their debut album, ‘Galaxies Not Ghettos’ as well as ‘Ra!’, ‘No Space No Time’, ‘London
Bridge’ & ‘We Never Die EP’, they are set to drop their second album in early 2015.
Recently presented with the Willem Wodka 2013 Award – Grounds, Rotterdam and
