''London's own stompin' ragtime orchestra''
The Basin Street Brawlers are London's own master exponents of hot jazz, swingin' their way through the most beautiful melodies and raucous rags of the 1920s and 1930s.
In the past year alone the Brawlers have performed as headliners at the London Swing Festival, as featured artists at the Royal Albert Hall “Late Night Jazz” series, in addition to countless appearances at internationally acclaimed speakeasy The Nightjar, secret drinking societies such as The Candlelight Club and jazz&blues clubs including The Blues Kitchen.
Their repertoire features the finest work of the master songwriters of the era, including Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael and George Gershwin, delivered in a unique and powerful style reminiscent of the Louis Armstrong All Stars and the great Harlem stride piano-man Thomas “Fats” Waller.
The Brawlers are extremely popular with swing dancers of various flavours, as well as jazz club, festival and concert hall audiences. In addition, they can just as often be found providing the soundtrack for only the most stylish of parties throughout the UK, Europe and further afield.
