Yolanda Charles and Dee C. Lee

Managed to catch a great set of music at the portobello rd gig 'Inn on the Green' last week from a Brilliant new band led by Bassist/vocalist Yolanda Charles and Vocalist Dee C Lee. The band called 'The Deep Mo' laid down some excellent compositions opposite the very promising new artist Lisa-Marie Falloon who had drum supremo Justin Pickett laying down the funk.Other musicians checking the band and venue out were Karl Van Den Bosch and Noel Mckoy.
The Deep Mo are the tightest of bands leaning towards the sound of the great 'Rufus' of Chaka Khan fame. but with a style and fresh sound of their own. Of course having four musicians of the calibre of Robert Mitchell on Keys,Miles Bould on drums and guitarist Scott Firth and Yolanda on Bass in any band you really do know your onto a winner, as they will always deliver music of the highest quality! Material included some taken from a debut EP out now that is an essential for anyone into good soulful sounds! Keep an ear out for any gigs around town, you will not be disapointed!

Off topic!

I saw your quartet play at Spitalfields on Saturday - it was a great gig! Not what I was expecting at all, but I really, really enjoyed it. Thank you!

I took some pictures of your band and I have posted them to Flickr - you can see them here:
