"I'm impressed, I love this band!" Craig Charles - BBC 2 Funk and Soul Show

"Very funky! Great horns, and the groove has a deep pocket" - Zigaboo Modeliste - 'The Meters'

The Coalminers live Upstairs at Ronnie's! Expect a show full of N'Awlins funk played by some of the finest musicians in London.

Line up likely but tbc: Paddy Milner (Keyboard/ Vocals); Ben Somers (Sax/Perc/Vocals); Dan Drury (Bass); Rob Updegraff (Guitar) & Pat Levett (drums)


The only band to fully dedicate themselves to the New Orleans Soul and Funk sound in the UK, The Coalminers have built up a reputation of delivering their very own authentic Swamp Soul! They have performed on tour with the legendary drummer from 'The Meters' Zigaboo Modeliste, and also boast the same horn section used by Dr. John when he visits the UK.

Taking in the likes of Professor Longhair, Lee Dorsey, Allen Toussaint, The Meters, Eddie Bo and the like, as well as penning their own songs, the 'miners are keeping things Crescent City style!

Most gigs are performed as a 6 piece (Vocals, Sax, Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums), but there is the option of an added horn section and percussion bringing it up to a 12 piece lineup.

The band also works with international blues and funk artists who require a band when playing in Europe, and recently toured with the dynamic Californian blues singer and songwriter, Earl Thomas, and the master funk drummer of New Orleans himself, Zigaboo Modeliste.



The Coalminers are made up of some of the finest musicians in London who, as well as leading their own successful projects, have worked with Dr John, Jamie Cullum, John Mayer, Massive Attack, Tom Jones, Maceo Parker, Bernard Purdie, Seal, The James Taylor Quartet, The Filthy Six, Madness, Amy Winehouse and Dizzee Rascal to name but a few.
