TRIP FOR BISCUITS
Are you ready to be transported back to the 1920's, an era of speakeasies, prohibition and feather boas?
Guaranteed to have you shaking your tassels, with their ragtime take on some of today's chart hits, Trip For Biscuits is a 1920s-inspired party band based in Bristol and available all over the South West and UK. Recent clients include the British Grand Prix, the NHS, the Army, Severn Trent and Bristol University
At the core of the band is a deep knowledge of the music of the 1920s, garnered from many years on the Bristol traditional jazz scene, and a love of contemporary chart music - plus the imagination to put the two together. All our arrangements are 100% original, they are not Postmodern Jukebox covers - you will NOT hear them anywhere else!
The entire lineup has extensive professional experience - we turn up in costume and in character, and will transform your event into a 1920s speakeasy even as we play the latest songs by Dua Lipa or Bruno Mars. Perfect for parties with a Gatsby or Peaky Blinders theme.
We are available in a variety of lineups - for example, a vocal/piano duo for a wedding ceremony, or a small, lively ensemble for a drinks reception.
But to appreciate us in all our glory, it is recommended you book the full eight-piece line up - a four-piece rhythm section of guitar/banjo, sousaphone, piano and drums, a full Dixieland front line of clarinet, trumpet and trombone, and outstanding, dynamic vocals.
We bring all our PAT-tested equipment, including PA and tasteful lighting, and can set up quickly and discretely.
Please get in touch for an informal chat about your requirements - we are a flexible outfit and it is highly likely we will be able to create a lineup that fits your budget.
