A French Butler Called Smith have been performing their high-energy Latin, funk, instrumental fusion over a two-year period to ever-increasing audiences all over Australia. The initial creators behind this all organic dance music sound were acoustic guitar aficionado (Scott French), bass maestro (Jake ‘the Butler’ Martin) and respected world percussion artist (Brennan Smith). These original members have now been joined by esteemed musicians Mark ‘Gibbo’ Gibson on saxophone and Liam ‘Rasta’ Dorney on trumpet and it has invariably lifted the energy of the band and their multi-layered sounds of Latin, gypsy, world-roots and funk to ecstatically captivating levels.They are all-consuming to watch, and it is impossible to keep your feet still once you are within the energy realms of their music.

After recent festival performances such as Melbourne’s High Vibes Festival, last year’s BLUESFEST and the Woodford Folk Festival, the band has ventured back into the studio to record a follow-up album after the success of their debut album which was released early 2010. AFBCS are taking their evolving sound to no better dance floor than The New Lounge Room at Mullum Ex-Services Club on Friday.
