A ‘Chance to Dance’ Event
This band from Beds started out as ‘guerrilla buskers’, hijacking queues waiting to see other artists, or commandeering underground trains and escalators. Ritchie Prynne enlisted the help of Dan Edwards (double bass), Ryan Thomas (lead guitar) and Sam Barrett (rhythm guitar and fiddle) and were joined 18 months ago by Joel Barford (drums) and more recently by Tom Seals (keys), both accomplished young Jazz players.
Listen to CC Smugglers and you’ll hear the ghosts of American Folk music, Swing, Jazz, Country, Ragtime and Bluegrass. Listen more closely and you’ll hear contemporary touchstones such as Hip-Hop, Metal, Dubstep, House and Dancehall. Nothing is off limits for this outfit.
Ticket: £16 Full. £15 Concessions
What a fantastic band to open Chance to Dance for 2018! Trying to describe this group's influences is impossible but what I do know is that they are one of the best bands I have seen. An absolutely brilliant night is guaranteed. Book early as they have a very large fan base.
