Popular UK Gypsy Swing band in concert in Ashford Kent.
We have a concert coming up for the Ashford based production company Revelation in October and it’s going to be a stonker!
Back in April the JONNY HEPBIR DUO were asked to play for Revelation’s ‘Fireside Sparks’ concert series on a Sunday afternoon. We had an wonderful performance and despite the hot weather we managed to sell-out the event and entertained the audience with some classic Django-style swing guitars.
This time we have been invited back with the full QUARTET to put on a show for a Friday night event that looks set to raise the roof with hot, swinging jazz.
Here’s the poster for the event, we’re nicely sandwiched between Gareth Gates and Chris Difford from the celebrated band Squeeze.
The publicity for our event reads:
Friday 12th October 2018
7.45pm to 10.30pm (Doors 7pm)
General Admission £15 / £18 (door) Under 16 £12 / £15 (door) Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult.
Following on from his duo’s outstanding show earlier this year, Jonny Hepbir is back ready to raise the roof in Ashford with The Jonny Hepbir Quartet.
Featuring a vibrant mix of gypsy swing, jazz and funky latin the group have been playing together for nearly 10 years and use an all-acoustic line-up of guitars, double bass and vocals.
These are musicians whose love of their music and with their eclectic mix of jazz standards and Gypsy Swing produce a captivatingly, outstanding performance. With the authentic guitar backing of Jonny Hepbir and Jason Henson’s irresistibly driving chord sequences and syncopated swing rhythms, these are guitarists of the highest order playing instinctively together, their solos and scintillating tete-a-tetes irresistably entwining with Dan Sheppard’s musically benevolent bass playing. All aided by the powerful yet subtle vocals of vocalist Sara Oschlag, providing a seductive icing on this awesome musical cake.
