General Info: What? You haven’t already heard of Dexter Dextrous and the Fingersmiths? You don’t know about their funk-swing sound and their years of hard work and high profile gigs? Well! I better keep it short because this could go on all day! Dexter Dextrous and The Fingersmiths have been playing together for almost 6 years and are based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. We have shared stages with the likes of Hackney Colliery Band, Craig Charles, Roy Ayers, Space, Dub Pistols, Slamboree and Utah Saints among others. We work fully independently and have independently recorded and released 4 EPs since our conception – Five Fingers, All Talk, Devil Drives and now, The Enforcer EP. All the money from our gigs and CD sales goes straight back into making the band stronger and tighter and recording more music for our listeners. Our sound ranges in influence from James Brown to Sublime taking in a little swing, metal and soul on the way round. Funk holds us together and we’ve been writing more and more funky tunes in 2013-14, working towards our first full album. We are also proud to be a part of the Slamboree family tree, often supporting and contributing to their crazy rave circus exploits.
To contact or book the band please go to our facebook page. If you are interested in purchasing any of our music, or to listen for free, you can find links to individual tracks as well as our full EP at our bandcamp page. Thanks for your time and we hope to see you at one of our upcoming gigs in 2015!!
