Conjuring up the mood of 1930s Paris, fused with the energy of a campfire jam session, The Schmoozenbergs bring bouncy rhythms, jaunty melodies and their own little bit of special sauce to create an irresistibly upbeat gypsy jazz sound.
Since forming in 2012, this Bristol-based band have been delighting audiences far and wide…from festivals (including Glastonbury, Shambala, Green Man), to neighbourhood bars, from art centres to street corners.
Two duelling guitars, a violin and double bass come together to make a lively show full of catchy tunes, intricate musical interplay and playful improvisation.
Paying homage to the pioneers of the genre, the great gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and violinist Stéphane Grappelli, their repertoire includes interpretations of their timeless compositions, as well as pieces by the likes of Duke Ellington, Fats Waller and George Gershwin. All this combined with some original tunes, and quirky musical surprises, this is an evening’s entertainment guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step.
