About Us

SkinTight is a Funk band working in the Southwest playing the best of old and new funk and grooves. We guarantee you won't find a funkier or tighter band this side of the border!!

Fresh from the Barnyard, Skintight are a band of brothers numbering 5. They are cookin' up a storm spreading from the South-West. Inspired by syncopation; studious followers of groove, the art of bootay shakin, and the low end theory, these boys will show ya just where the downbeat is.

'Hey Engine House Will, show us the ONE... !'

They are so tight that you can see the daylight cascade through the gaps in the music. Sound scientists, lab-coated liberation-librarians, deep, rich, velvety-tapestry weaving magicians... You like them. They are your favorite band from now on.

In April 2006 Paul Haywood (sax & vocals) and the legendary Bryan Ugalde (drums) and  got together after a break from gigging together in Full Tilt Boogie and started a studio project with the aim of writing and playing tunes that groove. The band has evolved from studio to live work blending original material with their own arrangements of some classic covers, new and old. Influences are wide and varied, and include The Meters, Tower of Power, Maceo Parker, The Commodores, Ohio Players, James Brown, Kool and the Gang, Del la Soul & Stevie Wonder. The line up includes Matt Johns (keys) Jamie Crowle (Guitar) Damian Rodd (bass) and now Will Attoia Berresford Harris (Drums).

To date Skin Tight Funk has built a reputation for writing and performing some truly amazing tunes that grip their audiences and fill them with the same stuff that fuels this band……………..FUNK. Their musicianship is tight, original and inspired.

Skin Tight are regarded as the band to check out in the South West and regularly headline surf festivals on the north coast such as surf relief @ Watergate Bay, and pro tour events @ Fistral beach, Newquay. The band is looking forward to playing great venues, festivals, and doing what they do best………..laying down a big fat groove to make you move.
