Hamer & Isaacs Gypsy Swing Band
Hamer & Isaacs play volcanic, swinging gypsy jazz. Whilst portraying the influence of Django Reinhardt and The Hot Club Of France, the unique addition of Rosie Corlett’s soaring, flaming vocals is guaranteed to turn the thermostat up a notch. Rich Hamer (lead guitar) provides cut, thrust, panache and inspiration, and Mel Brindle (swing violin) utilises her impeccable classical pedigree to lend virtuosity to the flair of her improvisation, whilst the suave strum of Julian Isaacs (rhythm guitar), a veteran of the gypsy jazz scene for over three decades, and the incisive animation of Howard Kahn (double bass) provide the driving force that is the rhythm section.
