Welcome to the online home for West Cornwall jazz funk quartet 'A Beach Supreme'...
A Beach Supreme is a band with its roots in the UK Jazz scene, but one that blurs musical boundaries and creates its own distinctive mix of familiar grooves and tunes presented in an unfamiliar way. Here you can preview tracks from their new album, 'Volume One', download a free track , get more detailed info about the band and the album, book the band for your party, or be updated on upcoming live gigs.
Inspiration for The Beach’s material is partly drawn from tunes of the 1960's/70's pop charts, arranged to bring out simple but strong grooves; yes, whether you’re six or sixty you can dance to their music.
But it will be clear to Jazz aficionados that Marc Hadley, Pete Kubryk-Townsend, Damian Rodd and Richard Penrose all find common ground in a love of the classic “Blue Note” back- catalogue, especially where it leans towards blues-soaked Hammond organ, funky sax, hard-driving bass lines, “in-the-pocket” drum grooves and a touch of Latin percussion.
Thanks to their diverse backgrounds and experience, A Beach Supreme can sound equally authentic playing Georgie Fame hits to Brazilian street funk, and switch effortlessly from James Brown to Salsa - or even drum ’n bass. The Beach are at home in venues from house parties to palaces - and at occasions from weddings to Music Festivals.

Davey Payne (Saxophonist with Kilburn & The High Roads & Ian Dury & the Blockheads) waxes lyrical about Volume One...
Hand in hand we hear
The Band making love in the sand
On the beach I kissed a peach
Are the spaceships in my mind
Am I going blind?
A Beach Supreme - A Beach Supreme -
Jazz, Funk, Retro, Mood, Groove to a rasping tenor sax
With a Dextrous Rollins-esque sound.
A contemporary Alto and ambient flute,
Electric Piano, Fat midnight special Hammond Organ
And atmospheric strings.
Ace is the Bass, Chambers at heart with creative technique,
Jazz drums and percussion with the power to Rock
Plus excellent clever segs between tracks.
This is a fun, Live Jive Vibe that pulls you in
To the Place and Mood of the Music.
