About this Act

Taking you back to the golden age of jazz, Dani Sicari & The Easy Rollers is a roaring seven-piece vintage jazz band featuring award-winning musicians from The Royal Northern College Of Music in Manchester. Performing music from the illegal speakeasy bars of the prohibition era, the band has had audiences jumpin’ and jivin’ on dance floors across the country. They have been steadily building a reputation as one of the hardest working swing bands in the north of England with appearances at Manchester, Brecon and Marsden Jazz Festivals, Spinfest, Buxton Festival & Manchester Day.

Whether it’s a wedding, festival or social dance, Dani Sicari & The Easy Rollers can provide the perfect swinging accompaniment to suit any occasion and the repertoire is varied, to say the least. They take their musical cues from acts as varied as Fats Waller, The White Stripes and Rihanna.
