Newcastle-Upon-Tyne is home to a rich heritage of music and culture (if the local council get their way it may be railroaded for a while) – from that melting pot comes a six-piece band that combine Western Swing, Gypsy Jazz, Blues, Ragtime and Country into their own style.
The songs are in the main up-tempo and as you’d expect there’s plenty of toe-tapping going on, the band include washboard, sousaphone, cornet, piano, double bass, harmonica and drums amongst their instrument armoury and manage to ease in a track about a recent local news event Great Fire of Byker and a cover of Bank Failures a 30′s track by Bob Miller that fits perfectly with the current climate.
