“They’re great fun and they’ll swing you into bad health”
- Stephen Duffy, BBC Radio Scotland
Get your glad rags on, folks because the Jazz Age is in full swing!
Taking you back to the golden age of jazz, The Easy Rollers are a roaring seven-piece vintage jazz band performing hits from the speakeasy bars of the Prohibition era through to the end of the Swing era. Based in London and Manchester, they have had audiences jumpin’ and jivin’ on dance floors across the country.
Since 2016 they have been steadily building a reputation as one of the hardest working swing bands in the north of England, with appearances at Manchester Jazz Festival, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Lake District Summer Music, Buxton International Festival, Brecon Jazz Festival, Marsden Jazz Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The Easy Rollers have also organised a number of UK tours, sharing their enthusiasm for this music through gigs, Lindy Hop events and cabaret shows.
Their recent UK tour brought them to venues such as RNCM Concert Hall, Liverpool Philharmonic Music Room, Toulouse Lautrec, Cedars Hall, Peggy's Skylight and Clonter Theatre.
“...some blow-your-boots-off vocals with a voice that was as crystal clear as it was expressive and articulate... A slick, tightly choreographed hour of sizzling speakeasy from a melodious young septet.”
