The Fabulous Red Diesel have outdone themselves. The four-piece band, in releasing their new single “Mama Josie Said”, have decided to share a music video featuring their acclaimed live show at Brighton Fringe. The song itself is, of course, smooth, laid-back, and stunning, but the group’s performances are out of this world. Mixing trapeze, modern dance, and projections with their music leads to an incredible experience.
The group, made up of husband-and-wife team Ms. Kitty (vocals, keys, flute) and Duke Bloom (drums), transgender musician Miss Bea-Have (double bass, tuba, trumpet), and Rabbi Jaffa Delicious (guitar and trumpet), create a song and performance environment that stand out completely as uniquely “Fabulous Red Diesel”. On the topic of the song’s lyrics, Ms. Kitty said “The theory is that when you raise your own vibration, it affects everyone around you, they want to raise theirs, by doing what they love and finding peace.”
The Fabulous Red Diesel will be performing their live show “Sparkly Bird” various Pop Up Theaters (including ones at Broomgrove Estate and The Stade, Hastings for the Coastal Current Arts Festival) free of charge, emphasizing their belief that live music should be available to everyone.
