Electric Swing Circus
'+ support from ENNOR & Samantics
Fri 11 May 2018
The Electric Swing Circus is a live 6-piece fusion of saucy 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 audience.
The ESCs sound is a powerful combination of electric double bass, vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, keys, live drums, dirty synths and electro beats. Fronted by a sassy female double-act, with extensive variety of vocal styles, the ESC delivers a consistently dazzling show. Their debut, self-titled album is available now on Ragtime Records.

ENNOR are a Cornish folk rock band whose infectious sound has garnered attention from London to Penzance, as well as the acclaim of BBC Introducing. The poeticism and sincerity of frontman Tom Elliott is propped by the blistering work of the rhythm section.
ENNOR spent the summer of 2017 touring their sunshine sounds across the UK to the like of Boardmasters, Ronnie Scotts and The Eden Project, before heading into the studio to record new works ready for 2018 and the turn of the seasons.
