Still working on that hot first release.



Formed in 2006 in Inverness Scotland, the Leonard Jones Potential have been responsible for filling dance floors across the country with their fusion of original FunkSoul and Latin tunes.With a tight rhythm section providing hip shaking grooves, accompanied by the Hammond keys, tight brass harmonies and the Power House Vocals of Meeshelle Newell, the LJP really know how to tear the roof off. 

Taking influences from original funk legends, such as The MetersKool &The Gang and Charles Wright & The 103rd Street Rhythm Band, through to modern funk heavyweights such as SpeedometerThe Bamboos and The Haggis Horns, The LJP’s sound is an authentic, fresh journey into funk that will be sure to get you moving.

The LJP have a CV which reads playing at various festivals throughout the nation including the main stage at BelladrumRock-ness,Wickerman (to name a few) and headlining at JocktoberfestHoochie Coochie (Newcastle) and guests at the Edinburgh Jazz Bar.

In addition the LJP were personally selected by DJ legend ‘Carl Cox’ to play alongside The Brand New Heavies at his private 50th birthday party in Brighton.   The LJP are funk favourites of Craig Charles and have featured live on his Funk & Soul Show on BBC radio 6.
