Conjuring up the mood of 1930s Paris, fused with flavours of Eastern Europe and the energy of a campfire jam session, The Schmoozenbergs’ uplifting music will put a smile on your face and a spring in your step. With roots in Gypsy Jazz and influences beyond, they bring you both original compositions from their 2019 album Awaken, and imaginative interpretations of vintage jazz tunes.
Irresistible rhythms, evocative melodies and playful improvisation come together to create a lively and heart-warming sound.
Their 2019 album, Awaken, has roots in gypsy jazz, an album of original instrumental compositions is a genre spanning journey through jazz, world and acoustic influences, which captures the distinctive, evocative and playful energy of the band. The album was recorded down the road at Real World Studios.
Based in Bristol, The Schmoozenbergs formed in 2012 and have played live shows throughout the country, including festival performances (Glastonbury, Boomtown, Shambala, Green Man), dance events and national venue tours. This is their first release of original music, and has been made with the support of funding from Arts Council England.
