Tenement Jazz Band at Sylvie's Place
Hello my lovelies,
After days and weeks of technical issues, I do believe the problem has been solved and Sylvie's Place website is once again up and running properly. I am sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. I've gotten a few more gray hairs over it, I can tell you!!
Anyway, enough of the moaning... and on to the exciting part. Sylvie's is thrilled to present for your listening and toe tapping pleasure Tenement Jazz Band, Wednesday 04 March 2020. As usual, doors open at 6:45 pm and the music starts at 8.
Tenement Jazz band are a traditional jazz band formed in early 2018 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Brought together by their shared love of New Orleans music, and comprising musicians from various corners of Edinburgh’s vibrant jazz scene, they are on a journey of exploration back to the roots of the music that they play.
Their aims are to capture the raw energy and excitement of the early jazz recordings, to find and revive lesser-heard songs and cultivate their own interpretations of these, all in order to captivate experienced jazzers, dancing persons, and uninitiated ears alike.
In their brief existence so far they have performed at Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Dundee and Glasgow Jazz Festivals, collaborated with various musicians via their own Cellar Session residency, and performed their own hit show on the Edinburgh Fringe telling the story of the ‘Red Hot Roots of Jazz’ from turn of the century New Orleans and beyond.
I look forward to seeing you all on the night! It should be a cracker!!
