Leeds City Stompers
April 16, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Leeds City Stompers play the vintage blues, ragtime, swing and folk music that was popular in America in the 1920s through 1950s, but with the energy and feel of modern rock and roll music. The band swaps instruments and all three members sing lead, but essentially is a trio of guitar, double bass and drums or washboard. Christopher Fox is on guitar, double bass and vocals, Martyn Roper is on double bass, guitar and vocals and Jack Amblin plays the drums, washboard and does vocals too.
The band is set up to be like a traditional 1920s community string band, able to play any occasion by having a huge repertoire of songs in many styles and picking the right stuff as the night goes on. Be it a raucous set of well known songs at a wedding that gets the dance floor full, a seated show to a listening audience in a theatre or blues club, or a completely acoustic performance in a small space or on the street.
Please note that since this was added to the calendar stuff may have changed. It’s not my fault, it just happens sometimes.
