Here at Viva Live Music, we always love hearing new talent, and in particular discovering a new, appealing sound that will be exciting for events. So: welcome to our Gypsy Jazz ensemble.
These accomplished musicians add a new twist to traditional jazz. Their ‘gypsy’ rhythms bring a breath of fresh air to clients looking for background music at their events.
Formed out of friendship and a love for gypsy jazz, they bring together a fun, eclectic mix of gypsy jazz and latin standards with a healthy dose of silly covers too. Expect the pumping bass lines of Pete Thomas, the driving guitar rhythms and the frenetic fretboard wizardry of Tommy.
The band members are very experienced performers drawing influences from folk, blues and funk; David has performed on BBC and ITV with pianist Jools Holland and comedian Ade Edmondson. Pete’s career has seen him perform at festivals across the country with BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Award winner Megan Henwood and Jackie Oates. Whilst Tommy is a stalwart in the London and Oxfordshire jam scene, performing a whole array of different musical styles.
With a whole host of different genres to draw from it is little wonder why these guys never fail in entertaining people; whether they’re on stage at a festival or subtly providing an ambiance for your special event.
