”A dazzling London based swing band."

The band are led by saxophonist Fliss Gorst and consist of a stellar line up of London's finest musicians performing authentic swing, original tunes, and new takes on old classics.

This evening's gig features Canadian jazz vocalist Lauren Bush. Fliss and Lauren have been working together on and off for six years, performing regularly at Fliss' monthly residency at Poppies in Camden since 2013. They've collaborated on shows at festivals & theatres across the UK as well as London venues such as Ronnie Scott’s & The Spice Of Life. Their separate debut album launches (Lauren Bush ‘All My Treasures’ / The Fliss Gorst Band ‘The Place For Me’) both sold out Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho. ‘All My Treasures’ gained critical acclaim and ‘The Place For Me’ reached number 6 in the jazz album charts. Lauren and Fliss are always excited to have the opportunity to work together, performing traditional swing repertoire, classic American songbook tunes & original arrangements and compositions.

"Fliss and Lauren are joyously talented and hugely entertaining with a delicious sense of fun." 
Julie Sheppard, Director of Jazz Jurassica

"Lauren sings with poise, swing, impeccable time and is the best export from Canada since Diana Krall, Joni Mitchell and pure mountain air."
