The Hot Sardines make their London debut.
Take a blustery brass front line, add salty stride piano in the timeless image of Fats Waller and a frontwoman with the attitude and style of a 1930s cabaret diva, and you have The Hot Sardines in a seashell. And that's not to mention the tap dancer!
The Sardine sound is steeped in hot jazz and gypsy swing – a slice of between-the-wars Paris via New Orleans.
