No additives! a rich and natural sound
In this technological age it is rare to hear the human voice singing acoustically. It is usual for the performer to be separated from an audience by a wall of electronic instrumentation - microphones, mixing desks, loud speakers and other impediments to natural sound. Our aim is to rediscover the richness of pure vocal harmony and give people the opportunity to hear our songs without any electronic enhancement or distortion.
As our sound is best enjoyed acoustically, small venues and gatherings are our preferred setting. Birthday parties, wedding anniversaries, retirement parties, musical evenings etc. are our speciality.
We started out learning a couple of songs which had been originally arranged and sung by the Boswell sisters in the 1930s. We were blown away by the complexity and originality of the harmonies and rhythm, and quickly decided we had to explore this music further.
Our first public performance was at a birthday party of a friend. We were amazed at the response - everyone loved it, from grandparents to children. The sheer exuberance of the songs and the constant changing of tempo keeps the listener on their toes and is (we are told) a truly uplifting experience. Since then we have added to our repertoire with other songs of the period, but have tried to remain faithful to the spirit the Boswell Sisters by relishing the complexities of the music and performing with humour and grace.
