Conjuring up the mood of 1930s Paris, fused with flavours of Eastern Europe and the energy of a campfire jam session, The Schmoozenbergs’ uplifting music will put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step. With two guitars, violin and double bass, they bring irresistible rhythms, lyrical melodies and joyful improvisation to create an upbeat and heartwarming sound.
Their new album Awaken is due for release on 21st June 2019. This album of original
instrumental compositions is a genre spanning journey through jazz, world, gypsy, acoustic and folk influences, which captures the distinctive, evocative and playful energy of the band. The album was recorded at Real World Studios in February 2019.
Based in Bristol, the band formed in 2012 and have played live shows throughout the country, including festival performances (Glastonbury, Boomtown, Shambala, Green Man), international dance events and national venue tours. This is their first release of original music, and has been made with the support of funding from Arts Council England.
