Yamaha Music London gets a Funk makeover this June. Yamaha Music London is searching for London’s funkiest act; whether you're a soloist, duo or band, we want you doing your funky thing with us. This June, we'll be showcasing the best new talent in our flagship London store and sending the best through to our grand final with the chance to win a prize that money can’t buy - a gig on stage for the coveted Sunday 6:15pm slot at Love Supreme Jazz Festival 2019 this July. You won’t even need to bring any instruments - we have everything you could possibly desire and it’s all at your disposal. #FunkItUpThursdays



There are two heats:

Heat 1: 13 June 2019 at 6.30pm

Heat 2: 20 June 2019 at 6.30pm

FINAL: 27 June 2019 at 6.30pm

Each heat will see 3 to 4 bands and artists competing for their place in the final

All musicians (including accompanists) will play on Yamaha instruments, chosen on the day
