John Motors
John Motors
John Motors are an exciting funk organ trio based in London. Formed in 2020, the band has seen a swift evolution from bedroom funk outfit to hard-hitting funk rock machine. Their debut EP ‘Fuel the Groove’ came out in the summer of 2021, as their first venture into original music. Since then they have been regularly gigging around London, and expanded their sound rapidly in the last year. This has now culminated in the creation of their first full album ‘Horsepower’.

Horsepower promises to be an explosive funk experience. With hard-rock and blues influences coming out, and multiple guest appearances, it is a project the band are very excited to share.

The album launch on the 9th September will include a complete performance of the album, complete with guests, and early album access given to all ticket holders. This promises to be a night to remember!
