Mumbo-Jumbo is coming to Uppertown Social Centre, near Ashover, for the first time.
No, it is not a confusing or meaningless subject, but a top class country and blues band.
Oliver Carpenter, Chris Lomas and Phil Bond (aka Mumbo-Jumbo) deliver eclectic, acoustic close harmony, piano based music
Oliver’s vocal variety and general good humour fronts Mumbo-Jumbo. Described as “The nearest singer to Tom Waits that we have,” by Blues in Britain magazine, the new acoustic format give him the space and time to open up a voice that has a new timbre round every corner.
Chris is the epitome of a professional blues musician, playing with Tommy Allen, Steve ‘Big Man’ Clayton and from time to time on the road backing top US bluesmen Tommy McCoy, Paul Byrd, Jimmy Griswold and Big George Brock.
Phil is the ‘Keys and Squeeze’ player. A maestro on piano, his ranging voice and squeezebox playing really add to the Mumbo-Jumbo sound.
Their show in Uppertown is on Saturday, March 19. Tickets £12 including supper. Call 01246 590502 or 07966 154798 ..as quickly as possible.
