FiddleBop at Great Rollright Platinum Jubilee Celebrations
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Wales-based FiddleBop plays Gypsy jazz zing: updated! On violin, Spanish guitar, keyboard, and fretless bass. And we sing too, with four voices in harmony.
FiddleBop's jazz is sophisticated but not pretentious or stuffy. Is danceable but not rhythmically bland. Has plenty of improvised solos but is still tuneful and melodic.
We play jazz that's drawn from all of the genre's century-long history. Look forward to our unique beggars-in-velvet treatment of get-up-and-dance jazz from the 1920s (when "jazz was king"), 1930s chilli-hot swing, and bop and cool post-bop. Also jazz-flavoured classic pop, some folk-jazz, and our own creations. All with Gypsy zing and passion! Updated...
FiddleBop! Sparkling songs and tasty tunes... 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. All rich with instrumental pizzazz and tangy vocal harmonies. And lightly seasoned with wit, repartee and banter. We love what we play, and it shows!
