Fancy Biscuits

A high-calibre, high-energy funk and soul band, bringing a huge sound and party vibes to Marshfest 2022.

Putting their unique twist on a trunk-full of funk, soul and disco classics, this 6-piece class act are guaranteed crowd-pleasers, with floor-fillers from the likes of Chaka Khan, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and James Brown and tones inspired by modern-day funk heroes Scary Pockets and Vulfpeck.

Holding down the groove since 2009 are long-time brothers-in-funk Phil Mountifield on drums and Andy Edwards on bass.

Known for his love of fancy hats and spicy licks, Steve ‘Guitar’ Arnold completes the band’s rhythm section and brings the magic on lead.

James Stanton’s soulful sax adds punch and power to the mix, and with vocal power-house and soul-sensation Lou Ruddell at his side, the inimitable Richard Friend leads from the front on guitar and vocals.

With their tight sound and charismatic presence, it’s a line-up that never fails to impress – smashing out tune after tune to keep the party going long into the night.
