The Electric Swing Circus is a live 6-piece fusion of saucy 20's swing and stomping electro beats. Drawing influence from 1920’s swing and jazz, the explosive sound of the Electric Swing Circus reverberates back through time, re-inventing the genre of electro-swing for an ever expanding, multi-generational audience.

The ESC’s sound is a powerful combination of electric double bass, vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, keys, live drums, dirty synths and electro beats. Fronted by a sassy female double-act, with extensive variety of vocal styles, the ESC delivers a consistently dazzling show. Their debut, self-titled album is available now on Ragtime Records.

The band are active in the electro-swing scene, running their own annual festival, Swingamajig, and regular club night, Hot Club de Swing, as well as curating acts for events and stages across Europe.

The band first formed in 2011, with their preview EP, Penniless Optimist, released in September that year since they have toured across 4 continents, produced two full length albums and are one of the most exciting bands on the live circuit

HONG KONG PING PONG

Remember when going out used to be fun? Do you prefer dancing to posing? Does your idea of dressing to impress have nothing to do with designer labels and everything to do with finding a gorilla costume in the perfect shade of purple? Bored of identikit ‘edgy’ nights called Fraktion, Elastik, and other ironically misspelt words?

Well despair no more because THE HONG KONG PING PONG CLUB is here to restore your faith in the weekends!

Playing an eclectic mix including everything from funk, to dub, to hip hop, to Peruvian pipe music (okay maybe not the last one) DJs MORPHOSIS and FAT HARRY have spent the last few years working their musical magic to establish HKPP as one of the most vibrant, unique, and fun nights in the South West. As their popularity grew so too did the HKPP family, enlisting musical maestro DJ SPINFORTH to their performances.

From its humble roots as the trail blazing NSB radio show Beating The Crates, to its Godzilla-like conquering of the South West club scene, HKPP has kept the three F’s, ‘fresh, funky, and fun (and feathers…no, wait)’ as its mantra.

It doesn’t matter if it’s in Cornwall, London, Sydney, or Montreal, wherever they are booked the brave men of HKPP endeavour to provide a night unlike any other. So don’t just sit at home fantasising about the best night out that never happened, come and experience it for real with THE HONG KONG PING PONG CLUB.
