Influenced by the likes of Hot 8 Brass Band, Funkadelic, Toots and the Maytals and Sly and the Family Stone, frontman and founder Nathan Thomas was inspired to start the band following a road trip from New Orleans to Nashville. Since their debut gig in September 2016, Full Tilt have graced the stage at venues all over London including Rich Mix, The Blues Kitchen, The Bussey Building and Hootananny Brixton as well as festivals like Isle of Wight, Small World and Sunrise. 2019 saw the release of their third EP ‘Out of Line’ and their debut studio video, ‘Never’, following live videos of the tracks ‘Keep the Candle Burning’ and ‘Imagine’. To date the band have previously released two other EPs of original tunes – ‘The Remedy’ and ‘Prequel’.

An ever-growing collective of musicians, any one lineup features lead vocals, guitar, two backing vocalists, two trumpets, two trombones, baritone sax, tenor/alto sax, drums and sousaphone. With members of the Collective including graduates of Guildhall and Trinity Colleges of music, much of the band has a background in jazz music, resulting in bombastic solos to complement their heady riffs and raucous live show.


Appearing here in the classic lineup of an Organ led trio, with a mix of Nola funk and jazz. The Big Smoke Family are electrifying performers with credits that include Dr. John, Maceo Parker, Zigaboo, Ernest Ranglin, Joss Stone and The New Mastersounds. Purveyors of voodoo funk – they fuse New Orleans traditions with a London attitude to create a unique sound and infectious groove.
