#MasterlinkSessions #HelenaMay #RedtenbachersFunkestra #Funk #Soul
‘The Masterlink sessions’ are a joint venture of James Welch (MLP studio) and Stefan Redtenbacher (Redtenbacher’s Funkestra) to strengthen the community of creative and open-minded musicians who love Funk/Soul/Blues and Jazz.

The MLP studio band, AKA the Redtenbacher’s Funkestra rhythm section will perform live in the studio ft. guest vocalists and instrumentalists, recorded by James and filmed by Leo Mansell.

Like the legendary studio bands ‘The Wrecking Crew’, ‘The Swampers’, ‘The Funkbrothers’, ‘Booker T & The MGs’ et al we will have a whole bunch of musicians in the studio band.
Here are the boys and girls who have or will take part in – we feel truly lucky!

Stevie Watts, Rich Milner, Jez Davies, Ross Stanley, Jim Watson – keyboards (Hammond organ, Rhodes, Wurlizer, Piano)

People are welcome to sit in the recording and control room of the studio during the sessions! Just let us know beforehand so we can co-ordinate as we only have very LIMITED capacity!
