Saturday Shenanigans: FiddleBop
FREE ENTRY - donations being taken on the night to go to a charity (TBC)
Sparkling songs and tasty tunes are on the menu... daily-bread jazz from the 1920s (when "jazz was king"), chilli-hot swing and bop from later decades, plus jazzy-flavoured sides of classic pop and of songs written just yesterday. FiddleBop bring rich, instrumental pizzazz and tangy vocal harmonies, lightly seasoned with wit, repartee and banter. Music which, with its Gypsy jazz roots, can most definitely be hot unto cooking.
The band will get those feet stomping and get that heart thumping (in a good way, of course) for the traditional Gypsy tune "Dark Eyes", and when searing though Dizzy Gillespie's "A Night In Tunisia". Their music can be sweet and chilled, too: as in the delicate instrumental explorations of John Coltrane's exquisite "Naima", and the tender and nostalgic close-harmony vocals of "Here, There, And Everywhere".
