King Tut Trio

Mama Tokus & the King Tut Trio at Globe Jazz Chagford

A newish endeavour is the King Tut Trio, with Marcus Vergette, Ric Byer and Mama Tokus.

We’re a marriage of soul-jazz and mod mayhem, with soulful improvisations, unexpected cover versions, electric keyboard grooves and some hard-funkin’ fun too.

There’s also some spoken word in the mix, as Mama riffs verbally over the improvisations of the rest of us.

Email me at if you’d be interested in booking us

“My favourite thing in a great set was your first spoken-word number, Tom Unwin’s poem. Gil Scott Heron came to mind, which is always a pleasure”
