Friday 6th October - 8:00 pm
The Schmoozenbergs are a gypsy jazz and swing quartet, bringing you an upbeat slice of 1930s Paris. With two duelling guitars, a rolling double bass and a soaring violin, they bring irresistible rhythms and jaunty melodies to create a heart-warming, hip-swinging sound.
Paying homage to the pioneers of the genre, the great gypsy guitarist Django Reinhardt and the French violinist Stéphane Grappelli, their repertoire includes original interpretations of their timeless compositions, as well as pieces by the likes of Duke Ellington, Fats Waller and George Gershwin, and some cheeky musical surprises thrown in for good measure.
A light-hearted show, containing catchy melodies, intricate musical interplay and playful improvisation, The Schmoozenbergs are guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step!
Based in Bristol, the band formed in 2012, and have had a busy 5 years of shows, playing a wide range of venues… from Glastonbury Festival to neighbourhood bars, from Arts centres to street corners.
