Boneshaker Band, The
The Boneshaker Band eclectic musical menagerie revels in razzamatazz jazz from the roaring 20s and beyond with exotica from the Latin quarter, tangos, salsas and mambos.
The band were absolutely brilliant. I couldn't sit still and the old tootsies were tapping ten to the dozen!
The band formed after a splendid and extravagant vintage ball at the RAC Club in Pall Mall, London in 2013. The vintage ball required a repertoire of music from the 20s and 30s for strictly dancing despite little room to move on a shimmering, dazzling packed dance floor.
The band came together specially for that event.They went down a storm with the glittering audience and so decided to form The Boneshaker Band, extending the repertoire for concert, nightclub and festival audiences. Today the repertoire is best described as a smorgasbord of musical delights. Now they play concerts, nightclubs, festivals and other special events including ‘that private party on the Orient Express’ in 2019 which started in Paris and ended in Venice.
Also their recent prestigious appearance at The Henley Festival in September 2021.
The Boneshaker Band take you on a musical journey from the roaring 20s to the swinging 60s and beyond! With music from Buenos Aries to Istanbul from the Mississippi Delta to La Dolce Vita and the Riviera. Including classic movie themes and the great British and American songbooks with lots of cool jazz along the way. Always an exciting visual performance. This is mouth watering, toe tapping, luscious, energising music from five musicians whose deliberate intentions are to entertain you with style and pizazz:
i.e. ‘an attractive combination of vitality and glamour’
A splendid time is guaranteed for all!
“And just to say I really enjoyed your Henley set – it was exactly as I’d hoped and you clearly went down a storm with the crowd.” – Stewart Collins artistic director The Henley Festival September 2021.
