Mambo Jambo play songs from their new album ‘Groove Fruit’
Acoustic roots duo Mambo Jambo might just be the biggest acoustic duo you’ll ever see; a truly unique two-piece, performing their lively, joyous mash up of roots styles plus original songs; A fabulous musical treat is in store wherever they roll up, their tour bus packed to the brim with instruments. Pete on guitar, banjo, vocals, accordion, Cuban tres, ukulele, and Frankie on sax, vocals, clarinet, flute, steel pan, & between them all kinds of percussion including suitcase and spoons!
Pete and Frankie have appeared on various BBC Local Radio shows, BBC Look North, the BBC Symphony for Yorkshire and MTV Asia, were featured in several Hull City of Culture festivals, and have been gathering admirers at shows and festivals the length and breadth of the country. They’ve played gigs in Havana, toured France, Ireland and Sweden, and festivals in Borneo and Portugal.
They’re thrilled to be back on the road, as they’re passionate about playing live. Although they play nationally, it’s rare to catch them in their own neighbourhood, so don’t miss the chance to see them at the East Riding Theatre, where they’ll be performing songs from their brand new album, ‘Groove Fruit’ plus some old favourites!
