SPEAKEASY BOOTLEG BAND
Our favourite boys are back! If you haven't already been to a Speakeasy gig, get yourself down to this gig, it's going to be great!
Speakeasy Bootleg Band are purveyors of the "Finest Quality Bootleg Music Since Records Began.... Distilled & Bottled in New York and Chicago", but consumed wherever finer things are appreciated. SBB play a heady mix of jazz, jive and Harlem swing, the vintage sounds of the Cotton Club and Birdland, the illegal drinking haunts of prohibition Chicago and countless rent parties, driving bass, explosive drums and sophisticated witty vocals.
This is the music of Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Louis Jordan, Cab Calloway, Fats Waller, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, and Art Blakey, the music which drove Tin Pan Alley and created the Great American Songbook. The SBB musicians have a ball on every gig, and make sure the audience do as well, making SBB the ideal band for people who don't like jazz...... until they've heard it that is........ The perfect antidote to all things serious! Good time, easy listening, toe tapping stuff. No more shall we hear the plaintive cry.............. "What time does the tune start?"............ After this, everything else is moonshine............ If you want to know more, then come and see us........ you won't be disappointed. This band is AWESOME!"
