BOURBON STREET 5
EMILY & THE FEDORAS
In 2012, Emily Streete and Michael Grant began jamming together as Drive. After a few gigs around Edinburgh they realised that all the songs that they wanted to perform required horns. As awesome as Mike’s face melting guitar solos are, they decided that musically, they were going to need a bigger boat. In March 2013, two became eight: Emily and The Fedoras were formed. With a shared passion for a bygone era where the grooves were as cool as the clobber, the band began reworking classic Soul, Motown and Classic Rock hits.
As the set list grew and gigs became plentiful, word got out about the band’s infectious energy and onstage banter; Their image alone makes you feel like you’re part of a special event, and they back it up with talent and a real desire to give you a special performance. Keith Easton Manager, The Wel – Edinburgh Rehearsal and Creative Facility.
On the back of the success of their performance at the Festival Theatre Studio in 2013, the band were asked back the following year and were met with a roaring reception.
In the summer of 2014, Emily and The Fedoras recorded their first EP at The Rec Room Ltd in Edinburgh and also performed in Freestival as part of The Edinburgh Fringe. They frequently gig around Edinburgh and have a regular slot at the live music venue Whistlebinkies where they’ve been met with a roof raising reception.
Emily and The Fedoras bring a classic retro style to any party and relish the opportunity to whip the crowd into a frenzy!
