350 Brockley Road London SE4 2BY
Long-time favourites OO-BOP-SH’BAM have been recognised for some time as one of the best UK and European, 1950’s Style Rhythm and Blues, Jump Blues, boogie and Rock and Roll bands. They are based in London but have performed all over Europe at festivals and private parties.
They took their name from that great jazz classic by Dizzy Gillespie. The musicians in the band have all been influenced by those amazing 1950’s RnB and Swing bands that featured rocking rhythm sections and honking saxophones – artists like Wynonnie Harris, King Curtis, Roy Brown, Rosco Gordon, Fats Domino, Fats Waller and many others. The great blues nd rock n roll artists of those times like BB King, T Bone Walker, Johnny Guitar Watson, Elvis Presely, Bill Hayley and the Comets, Little Richard, and many more have all played their part in shaping the authentic sound of Oo-Bop-Sh’Bam!
Our April Jive Party will feature a beginners’ jive class and DJs to kick off the evening, followed by two sets from the band.
