FRASER & THE ALIBIS
London-based four piece, Fraser & the Alibis play the hippest in Bop, Blues and Boogaloo. Inspired by the tenor sax sounds of Dexter Gordon and the organ pioneer Jimmy Smith, the bands' original tunes are deeply entrenched in the roots of music. Fraser & the Alibis channel the intensity and feel-good effect of the swing and jive music of the dance hall era, combined with the intricacies of later jazz movements. Featuring some of the most in-demand, young improvisers on the London scene, the band have played over 400 gigs together and released their much-anticipated debut album in October 2017.
THE SUGAR KINGS
From the Salons of pre-revolution Havana, where the sweet smell of cigars lingered and the aged rum flowed, The Sugar Kings trio present Son Montuno, Guaracha and Cha Cha Cha with a ray of Cuban sunshine. Inspired by the revival of traditional Cuban music from the amazing 'Buena Vista Social Club', it was Cuban percussionist and singer, Flavio Correa who formed the band. The three-piece is made up of himself, one of the UK's leading Salsa players, Elpidio Caicedo and classically trained Tres player and singer, Daniel Carnago.
