THE HOP SH BAM CONNECTION
This quintet plays the real swing from the period between the 20 ties and 50 ties. They are from Belgium!
The biggest inspiration is the repertoire of the marvellous ballrooms of the thirties, as for example the savoy ballroom in New York. Hop – sh- bam plays tunes on which lindy hop dancers could go crazy. The quintet plays the beautiful standards of the swing –era, and also some tunes of the exciting bigband period, or even some tunes of the new Orleans repertoire, more Charleston inspired. Let’s call it : an excellent band, full of energy, whit a big focus on the pure art of swinging music. Nice to listen, nice to dance on it.
