Saturday Shenanigans: FiddleBop
FiddleBop! Sparkling songs and tasty tunes... daily-bread jazz from the 1920s (when "jazz was king"), chilli-hot swing and bop from later decades, jazzy-flavoured sides of classic pop, and of songs written just yesterday. Rich with instrumental pizzazz, tangy vocal harmonies, and lightly seasoned with wit, repartee and banter.
Music which can be sweet and chilled. Their delicate instrumental explorations of John Coltrane's exquisite "Naima", or the tender and nostalgic close-harmony vocals of "Here, There, and Everywhere" for example. And music which, with its Gypsy jazz roots, can most definitely be hot unto cooking. FiddleBop will get those feet stomping and get that heart thumping (in a good way, of course) for the traditional Gypsy tune "Dark Eyes", when they're searing through Dizzy Gillespie's "A Night In Tunisia", and for their funky version of oldie-but-goodie "Sweet Georgia Brown".
"And (please excuse us, we're about to blow our own trumpet) that's one reason why audiences love FiddleBop's "jazz with Gypsy zing", our unique beggars-in-velvet flavour of jazz music".
FREE ENTRY! Donations will be on taken for Hay Cat Rescue on the night.
