Jive Bombers - Sydney - Latin
World Music available for hire, based in New South Wales
The APRA-award winning Jive Bombers' LOUNGE CRAZY celebrates the 1950s and 60s, that Cinemascope and Technicolor moment in pop music when anything was possible.
The cocktail includes --
JUMP BLUES: big band swing turns into rock 'n' roll (Louis Prima, Louis Jordan, Ray Charles) while composers like Henry Mancini and Quincy Jones introduce jazz to movie soundtracks.
RIO TO COPACABANA: Cuba's mambo kings (Tito Puente, Perez Prado) catch Brazil's new wave, aka bossa nova, and surf it into a new era of latin pop, jazz and disco.
LOUNGE LIZARDS: ring-a-ding swingers Dino and Frank go head to head with Torch singers like Peggy Lee and Dinah Washington for ownership of the great American songbook.
So pour yourself a martini and drink in the sounds of the era of black and white TV, tail fans and the atom bomb. It's a blast!
