Take some cool, funky soul and Motown; mix with some hot rock licks and you have Peppermint, playing classic and contemporary grooves that make you wanna get on up and get on down!
The band members have crossed paths over many years performing in different outfits, playing everything from classic rock and pop covers, to blues and jazz and now they have come together to produce a soul band that rocks!
The phenomenal vocal talents of Emma, their lead singer, with Ian (guitar and vocals) is the heart and soul of the band, driven by the pulsing beat and classic riffs provided by Nigel (drums), and John (bass). Add the funky chord work, creative lead breaks and raunchy licks of guitarists John and Ian and you’ll just want to get out of your seat and on your feet!
Put some Peppermint in your ears and taste their cocktail of some of the best classic and contemporary soul and rock.
