Christmas Special

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Saturday 22 nd December 2018

PizzaExpress Live (Maidstone)

Dynamic. Different. Unique. Known for their world class musicianship and high energy performances, Bamboozle seamlessly combine the vibe of the swinging 1950's with the sounds of today, in a way that mesmerises both retro loving and modern audiences. The band combines internationally renowned singer/guitarist/songwriter Jim Knowler (The Keytones, Gotz Alsmann), injecting his exciting and instantly recognisable guitar riffs, with new face on the scene, singer/bassist/songwriter Serena Sykes, lighting up the stage with her dynamic performances, electric vocal and daring double bass stunts, backed by the slick, thrumming grooves of drummer/vocalist Les Curtis (Imelda May, Darrell Higham, Wanda Jackson).

“...the talent and musicianship on display here has set the bar very high.” UK Rock and Roll Magazine

“...the future looks Bamboozled” Slap That Bass Reviews

Featuring special guest Keith Wilkinson from Squeeze fame, after gigging for years with the fantastic talents of Chris Difford, Glen Tilbrook, Jools Holland and the band, Keith has worked with some great names in the industry, including Marcella Detroit and The Jar Family to name a few recent additions. He joins Bamboozle for this special event, where he will give us a taste of Bamboozle's new single "The Lowdown" alongside Jim Knowler for this great original song.

“Great musicianship, a super rockin’ vibe and a stellar set from the four piece. Excellent.”  The Bettajive Review 

“...a very fun, uplifting, melodic and cool retro outfit who deliver a jangly 50’s-esque sound that gets you swinging in the aisles. We predict big audiences having a lot of fun and dancing to this in the streets. What a refreshing change from the usual pop rubbish out there.” Chasing Tunes  

"...a warm retro sort of rockabilly sound that speaks to your heart and dancing feet, evoking the emotion you don’t get from modern pop songs. Well worth a listen and should be on some B Movie soundtrack.” City Beats 

“...amazingly sweet but ruff and ready vocal harmonies, thumping retro Pulp Fiction/Beatles type beats and shimmering bouncy guitars. All we can picture is a roadhouse with some pretty girls drinking milkshakes while eying up The Fonz or Archie…..we love this it’s classic and it hits our Groovy barometer at 10/10.”  Groove Magazine
