Yellow Arch presents Gypsies of Bohemia
Yellow Arch Studios, Sheffield
Sunday, 23 Apr 2017
19:30 – 22:30
It gives us great pleasure to welcome back one of Yellow Arch's favourite bands, Gypsies of Bohemia with support from The Hot Club of Clowntown, for an evening of gypsy jazz follery and merryment.
Gypsies of Bohemia
As the UKs leading original covers band Gypsies of Bohemia pride themselves on having written at least half of their complete catalogue of original cover versions. Something of a paradox? Well that sums these guys up. These 5 musically literate, well groomed individuals can bring a party like no other to the bandstand and turn the most sophisticated of settings into an all-out guitar style rave with their inventive and superbly crafted renditions of popular contemporary songs from the modern era - whoever said you can't polish a turd was wrong.
Rarely has such a delicate balance been successfully struck between the artistic and the absurd. Is Django turning in his grave?.... We hope he's doing it B Boy style to the sounds of Gyp Pop.
The Hot Club of Clowntown
The Hot Club of Clowntown play gypsy swing in the style made famous by Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grapelli and their 'Hot Club' quintet - playing all sorts of Gypsy Swing, Ballad, Gypsy Bossa and even a few Gypsy Waltzes.
