Gentlemen & Gangsters
Gentlemen & Gangsters play hot jazz with all the flair and sophistication of true gentlemen, coupled with the ruthless brutality of hardened gangsters. Like a devious conspiracy from a bygone era, this shady syndicate of jazz kingpins plot for world domination from their secret location in a run down part of Gothenburg. Armed with drumsticks instead of knuckle dusters and trombones instead …of tommy guns these deranged masterminds spread mayhem, joy, and decadence wherever they go.
Sir Bourbon Dixieland Band
Sir Bourbon Dixieland Band They have participated in several major jazz festivals in Sweden, including Askersund, Årjäng, Kungsbacka, Kungshamn, Ronneby and, of course, Gothenburg. Within a decade they have played on the Göta Channel Company’s jazz cruises in the Bohusland archipelago. They have also been and played in the Netherlands and Germany at major jazz festivals. Sir Bourbon started in Gothenburg’s southern suburbs of seven “boys” in the 80’s, who all loved playing jazz. Right from the start, our motto was to play happy and accessible jazz!
