Ma’Grass are taking funk to the next level! They have played twice at Plugged In Switched On Show now and they have ripped the roof off the place on both occasions. In no small measure Ma’Grass have one of the liveliest and driving sounds on the London scene and they’re exuberance and vitality is seriously infectious. I warn you!! “You think you won’t, but you will be dancing!!!” They’re rhythm section is second to none and they know how to write a good song or 10. Put simply, “these guys rock”. :)”  says Iian Scott – London’s Promoter.
