The Hot Sardines

River Town 2019

Take a blustery brass front line, add a salty stride piano in the timeless image of Fats Waller, a frontwoman with the attitude and style of a 30s cabaret diva, and you’ve got The Hot Sardines. Mixing hot jazz with some gypsy swing this troupe of hotshots deliver all the classics and a few more contemporary covers with their own unique twist.

Let them transport you to the glory days of 1930s Paris via New Orleans, New York speakeasies and swinging jazz bars.

“These New Yorkers […] play big halls as if they’d just dropped in to a party.” – The Guardian

“…it reminds us that there was a time when jazz was a form of entertainment” – The Times

Ages 14+ (Under 18’s to be accompanied by an adult)
