On paper they are Kim Hollin on vocals, Alec Hollin on guitar, Chris Mather on bass, Dave Farnworth on keys and Phil Carr on drums.
On stage they are best described as; a large measure of Soul with a generous helping of Funk muddled together with a dash of Acid Jazz to taste. Their music mixes gutsy female vocals with heavy bass driven grooves, riff heavy guitar and liberal lashings of Hammond funk. All original material but have been known for the occasional cover in our own special style.
Originally formed in 2009 and in that time have played at hundereds of venues up and down the country. 2013 saw the Templebys taking to the stage at many renowned Jazz and Funk clubs throughout the UK including Matt and Phreds, Floridita and the Yardbird, not to mention several festival appearances including Kendal Calling and Solfest.
The Templebys have also supported several high profile artists in thier genre and the highlights of the last two years being Smoove and Turrell, The Craig Charles Funk and Soul Show and Huey Morgan and the New Yorkers.
The whole band are massive funk and soul fans and you will always find them on the dancefloor after they have performed, and sometimes while they are still going on!
