Heavy keys grooves and Fender Rhodes vibes are at the heart of the Resolution 88 sound, driving jazz funk beats to audiences across the UK and Europe - rightfully earning themselves a reputation for authenticity and passion both in their live shows and recordings alike.
"Resolution 88 ... this is an exciting young band from Cambridge who take their influence from the immensely important, barrier-breaking mid 70's funk jazzer Herbie Hancock & the Headhunters - they've come out of nowhere at the last minute! There's absolutely no-one around at all like these guys at the moment!" Craig Charles (The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show)
