"Riding the waves of the south coast come the purveyors of Beach Funk, The Flip Flays."
So eclectic they had to make up their own genre - Beach Funk is a blend of the groove and energy of Funk, the relaxed vibe of Reggae, the essence of Soul, and the mass appeal of Pop. All mixed with a pinch of Jazz and Blues to make a fresh, vibrant, summery sound that will bring out the sun even in the depths of winter.
Usually a four-piece, The Flip Flays can bring enough energy to a performance to match the biggest venue, but you can often see them play as a trio, or even a duo. The melody driven and harmony laden songs take on a whole new light when played acoustically.
The Flip Flays have been playing along the south coast, from Brighton to Newquay since 2008 after James and Mike met a few years previously whilst doing a music degree. They were soon joined by Dan and Ben, completing the line-up. Since then they have been forging their sound and building a fan base, culminating in the 2010 release of their debut EP, Beach Funk.
