Seven Eleven and the successful British soul/funk formation Incognito know each other since both bands released an album on Challenge Records. Incognito’s bandleader and guitarist Jean-Paul ‘Bluey’ Maunick loves the funky sound of Seven Eleven and wrote in 2012 on our MySpace-page: “I’ll continue to let folks know about your band.”
This summer Seven Eleven en Incognito will share the stage for the first time: on July 19th at the Pleins Feux Festival in Bonneville (France). In november the bands will funk up several clubs in the Netherlands:
Nov. 14th Luxor Live, Arnhem
Nov. 15th Tivoli, Utrecht
