The early days were small gigs, playing Meters covers and Meters-inspired originals (hence the name). As attention grew, so did the band, from a quartet to the 8-piece outfit seen today. On the way, they have toured all over Europe and Japan and there have been countless singles, loads of albums, including collaborations with some of legendary names in soul and funk.
In 2012 they produced an album with James Brown’s soul sister Martha High and toured Europe promoting the album “Soul Overdue”. The current line-up is fronted by amazing soul vocalist James Junior who also features on the album “No Turning Back” which Renegades Of Jazz dub “.....probably the best Speedometer album ever!”
Look out for the next LP in 2019 which brings all the styles (soul, latin and afro funk) plus contributions from guest musicians..
