Electric Swing Circus
The Electric Swing Circus is a live six-piece fusion of classy ‘20s swing and stomping electro beats. Drawing influence from 1920s swing and jazz, the explosive sound of the Electric Swing Circus reverberates back through time, re-inventing the genre of electro-swing for an ever expanding, multi-generational audience.
The ESC’s sound is an exciting combination of vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, electric double bass, keys, live drums, dirty synths and electro beats. Fronted by a powerful female double-act, the ESC delivers a consistently dazzling show.
The band are active in the electro-swing scene, running their own annual festival, Swingamajig, and regular club night, Hot Club de Swing.
The band first formed in 2011, and have since toured four continents, playing major festivals and headline shows all over the world. They’ve released two genre-defining albums on Ragtime Records: ‘Electric Swing Circus’ and ‘It Flew By’.
Ladies and Gentlemen, hold onto your hats. The circus is coming to town!
