Conjuring up the mood of 1930s Paris, fused with the energy of a campfire jam session, The Schmoozenbergs bring bouncy rhythms, jaunty melodies and their own little bit of special sauce to create an irresistibly upbeat gypsy jazz sound.
Two duelling guitars, a violin and a double bass come together to make a lively show full of catchy tunes, intricate musical interplay and playful improvisation.
Since forming in 2012, this Bristol based band have been delighting audiences far and wide…from festivals (including Glastonbury, Green Man, Shambala), to neighbourhood bars, from arts centres to street corners.
Their timeless music is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step.

“Hugely entertaining….three guys who just light up a room….
…can’t recommend them highly enough….”
Dr Zebo's Wheezy Club is an acoustic trio of guitar, fiddle and double bass, based in Wiltshire and the Bath area, playing good-time, foot-stomping, swingy, jazzy, folky stuff .
Dr Zebo music includes elements of 1920s/30s/40s jazz songs sung in close harmony, with original folky tunes by members of the band, together with quotes from well-known TV and film music - often played in a tongue-in-cheek way. One minute you are in the 1930s with an old Ellington, Fletcher Henderson or Stuff Smith number and then you are listening to a Bob Wills fiddle tune (there may have been a Tom Waits' song squeezed in between)!
Overall, this bizarre, funny and quirky kaleidoscope of music is very difficult to get across in a 20 sec video or audio clip. You have to experience it in the flesh! It’s all very jolly and guaranteed to keep everyone on their toes.
The band consists of Simon Taylor - guitar and vocals, Mike Fossett - fiddle and vocals and Ralf Dorrell - double bass. With a combined performance record of greater than 120 years, there is no lack of experience!
Simon and Mike go back a long way, having grown up together in Filton, Bristol. Both play together in the well-established pub and ceilidh band The Electric Lobsters who have been together for over 30 years and are still banging it out! Mike also plays in the Prog/Rock outfit, BlueDog.
Ralf is very active on the South West music scene as a composer, performer (double bass, bass guitar and trombone), bandleader, ensemble director, lecturer, teacher and workshop tutor. He has been leading workshops on improvisation, composition and jazz since 1984. His compositions have been performed on BBC Radio 3 and at venues including the Purcell Rooms, South Bank, London and St George’s, Brandon Hill, Bristol.
