The Boneshaker

The Boneshaker conjure up a heady cocktail of razzamatazz jazz from the roaring 20s and beyond with exotic rhythms from the Latin quarter, tangos, salsas and mambos.  French chanson rubs shoulders with the Weimar Cabaret while film noir soundtracks mingle with the Klezmer-esque and the quaintly curious confections of the golden age of jazz. The Boneshaker features thrilling three part harmonies, virtuoso romantic violin, soaring sax and clarinet accompanied by a swinging rhythm section featuring vintage percussion to create an inimitable musical and visual Boneshaker event.

+ LATE SET

The band will also be playing a Late Set from 11:30pm. Cover will be charged at £4 for guests staying on and £5 on the door.
