Dust off those patent leather heels, Band On The Wall is set for a night of explosive electro-swing this August with a visit from Electric Swing Circus. Expect a cocktail of vintage samples, electro beats, gypsy-jazz guitar, electric double bass, live drums and dirty synths and keys all in one catchy package. Formed in 2011, the vintage six-piece combine 1920s swing with stomping rhythm, fronted by an energetic and sassy female twosome, performing an eclectic variety of vocal styles to deliver a consistently dazzling show. Now famous on the festival circuit for their own “speakeasy spectacular” Swingamajig, each year they return to their native Birmingham to curate a line-up of live music, DJs, burlesque, circus and dance. Catch some of the magic yourself on 31 August with support from DJ Dr Sid, spinning jumping jive, big band swing and vintage R’n’B.
