The Schmoozenbergs play New Mills

Bristol-based The Schmoozenbergs will be performing at Spring Bank Arts in New Mills this September. 

Conjuring up the mood of 1930s Paris, fused with flavours of Eastern Europe, The Schmoozenbergs promise to put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step. 

With roots in Gypsy Jazz, and influences beyond, their two guitars, violin and double bass bring irresistible rhythms and playful improvisation to create an upbeat sound. 

Since 2012, the band has had a busy seven years of live shows, including Glastonbury, Boomtown, Shambala and the Green Man festivals. In early 2019, the band wrote and recorded an album of original music, with the support of funding from Arts Council England.

On this tour, their live show will contain a mixture of brand new music from this album, entitled Awaken, alongside imaginative interpretations of classic jazz and swing tunes by the likes of Django Reinhardt, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington and Fats Waller.

Get tickets for the show on September 7 from springbankarts.org.uk/events/, 01663 308 202 or from Spring Bank Arts or High Street Bookshop, New Mills.
