With a sound located somewhere between the deep south and South London, Gumbo La La play the rootsiest honky-tonk, zydeco, jazz and R&B in the UK. They like nothing better than to play foot-stompin' tunes that you can dance the Texas polka to. Conjuring up the spirit of the 40s and 50s, Gumbo La a take inspiration from the songs of Ray Charles, Big Joe Turner, Hank Williams Sr, Big Joe Turner and Clifton Chenier. They take an old sound - harmony vocals, accordion, fiddle, double bass, and acoustic guitar - and make it new.
As a trio or quartet, Gumbo La La are sure to get your guests up and dancing, though if you're looking for something more low-key, why not book the Gumbo La La duo - they can provide a set of purely instrumental vintage jazz music. The musicians in Gumbo La La are some of the finest players around, and have played with numerous renowned artists such as Van Morrison, Bob Geldof, Rolf Harris, Penguin Cafe Orchestra and Loudon Wainwright III.
