Drawing influence from 1920’s swing and jazz, the explosive sound of the Electric Swing Circus reverberates back through time, re-inventing the genre of electro-swing for an ever expanding, multi-generational audience. The ESC’s sound is a powerful combination of vintage samples, electro beats, gypsy-jazz guitar, electric double bass, keys, live drums and dirty synths. Fronted by an engaging female double- act, who perform an extensive variety of vocal styles, the ESC delivers a consistently dazzling show.
The ESC has a strong online and social media presence, including more than a million views on YouTube and over 14,000 Facebook fans, with both numbers growing daily. July 2013 saw the release of the band’s crowd-funded debut album on Ragtime Records. This benchmark, self-titled album, has had a positive worldwide reception from press and fans alike. The band’s second album was released in early 2016.
The band are active across the electro-swing scene, running their own annual festival ‘Swingamajig’, regular club night, ‘Hot Club de Swing’, and curating electro-swing acts and stages for events and festivals across the UK and Europe. The band go from strength to strength as one of the best live bands on the scene, smashing mainstage shows at major festivals worldwide. They also headlined the Avalon Stage at Glastonbury Festival 2015, and toured Australia and New Zealand.
We are super excited to welcome them to Woodbridge for some fun and… Frolics!
