DOOLALLY TAP continue to wow audiences everywhere with their uniquely energetic brand of vintage jazz. Originally hatched by ace trombonist David Lalljee and early-jazz nerd/sousaphone player Tom Briers in a dark corner of south-east London, the band’s spiritual home is 1920s New Orleans. Drawing inspiration from Crescent City musicians like King Oliver, Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet, as well as the “second line” bands that they came out of, Doolally Tap’s music evokes the true spirit and energy of the prohibition era.
The band are hugely popular on the London vintage and swing dance circuit, performing at venues like The Nightjar, Wilton’s Music Hall, Blues Kitchen and The Ditch, winning over audiences everywhere with their infectious, toe-tapping rhythms and irrepressible live show.
Doolally Tap have also added their own particular kind of raucous style to more opulent and sophisticated venues like Hampton Court Palace and Queen’s House, Greenwich and those more usually associated with classical music like Chelsea’s Cadogan Hall. It is even possible to see the band make a cameo appearance in the short movie Melvin, filmed at the world-famous Pinewood Studios.
DJ STIRZAKER provides to you a wide range of funky reggae vibes with an underlined theme of bass music. Jungle, breaks and glitchy goodness are never far from the drivers, nor is some happy boogie soul or dancing lizards…
