FiddleBop at MelinTregwynt
Please note: Info provided by the Event Organiser
Gypsy jazz and tasty BBQ, anyone? OK... then come to Melin Tegwynt (it's free entry) on Sunday 21 August, from 2 pm! As the food roasts to perfection, FiddleBop will provide hot and sultry "Gypsy jazz: updated" on violin, guitar, keyboard, fretless bass, and with four voices in harmony.
FiddleBop's Gypsy jazz is sophisticated but not pretentious or stuffy. Is danceable but not rhythmically boring. Has plenty of improvised solos but is still tuneful and melodic.
FiddleBop play jazz that's drawn from all of the genre's century-long history. Look forward to get-up-and-dance jazz from the 1920s, 1930s chilli-hot swing, bop and cool post-bop from the 40s and 50s, jazz-flavoured classic pop and folk, and the band's 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!
