SHORT BIO

Inspired by artists such as James Brown, Kool & the Gang and Earth Wind and Fire, the B Bug has been the

funkiest phenomenon in Greece since 1990. They have performed their original music as well as

funk/soul's best-loved covers in Greece's most popular clubs and European Jazz Festivals.

Since 2012, because of the Greek financial crises, the nucleus of the band has moved its base to Berlin.

This exciting, new lineup includes accredited musicians from all over the world, featuring Vernon D Hill

from Detroit, Michigan on keyboards and vocals and Daniel El congo from Cuba on Trumpet. The original

nucleus out of Athens, including lead vocalist Fotis "Potis" Tsirigotis, Teo Theodoridis on electric guitar &

vocals and Leonidas Kotsis on drums is thrilled about this union of funky-funksters & can't wait to groove

Berlin's booty into an atomic tailspin!
