Here are some of the bands who are going to play for us at BSX 2017… more to be announced later on, stay tuned!
MARTYN NELSON AND THE RHYTHM REMEDIES
We welcome Martyn Nelson and the Rhythm Remedies as our fabulous Friday evening band!
Not having enough running The Swing Era, Martyn is also at the helm of The Rhythm Remedies, which have been increasingly been in demand as one of the bands that know how to cater best to dancers.
With a crafted selection of Jazz musicians and a unique eye to adapt to a wide range of Swing dancing tempos, this band will give you all the Swing energy you need for the fabulous weekend ahead!
RUBY TWO SHOES
After wowing the crowd at Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival 2017, Ruby Two Shoes have truly cemented their place into the Bristol live swing scene.
An enchanting mix of modern, classic, and some unexpected fusion tunes mean that this wondrous quintet are constantly surprising and beguiling audiences all over the South West.
Their exciting sound coupled with a mountain of cake, and of course, extra special cups full of steaming hot tea make for a fabulous Saturday afternoon!
VERO NEKA BIG BAND VS. BIG R BIG BAND
Do you hear the drum rolling? It can mean one thing only: Battle of the Bands!
On Saturday night Vero Neka Big Band and Big R Big Band will feature in an epic showdown, bringing two of the most popular and well loved Big Bands of the South West face to face.
It will be an exceptional opportunity to witness a clash of Swing titans, so get your best attire ready, polish your dance shoes, and come along for this night to remember!
Sunday afternoon is our farewell tea dance, where we welcome once again Just Misbehavin’. We liked these guys so much last year that we decided to call them back again!
This Devon based jazz quintet will show exactly what musicianship is all about.
Lynn Thornton has a voice which has to be heard to be believed, and with four octaves at her disposal she can beguile, soothe, shock or delight, sometimes all at the same time.
Performing both classic and modern standards with a bit of a twist is their speciality, and this promises to be a very special afternoon of dancing.
