"If jazz is going to survive, it needs more bands like this one"
Kansas Smitty's House Band
LONDON Shoreditch Town Hall
380 Old St
The Kansas Smitty’s House Band have been quietly, or depending on where you’ve been spending your evenings, not so quietly, carving out a name for themselves as one of the driving forces in the UK jazz scene.
Their reputation, built on their incendiary live shows, has recently been cemented by the release of their full debut album, moving through sounds of swing, blues, R&B, New Orleans ethnic music, and gospel, they relentlessly pursue a sound of their own, seeking out and creating a genre-blind audience for their music.
