Screamin' Miss Jackson & the Slap Ya Mama Big Band
"Fusing a love of 20’s and 30’s jazz singers with elements of country folk and sublime western swing, Screamin’ Miss Jackson’s seven-piece ragbag of musicians have a fun and authentic sound. Their debut album’s due for release in 2016 and if reviews of their eponymous EP are anything to go by, it’ll be chock full of good time tunes which luxuriate in the sounds of Miss Jackson’s washboard, whistle-clean electric guitar licks and shuffling percussion. As befits a band with such an interesting moniker, their live show will provide fans of hokum, ragtime and Cajun stylings plenty of sounds to get those feet a’tappin’."

"As mischievous as they are a good-hearted collection of players utilizing their love for tradition and having a blast congregating and sharing what they love, down to basics music.. From my vantage point, there is nothing forced, weird, too hipsterish or convoluted about Screamin’ Miss Jackson & The Slap Ya’ Mama Big Band, they’re just a band, a family doing what they do and that, is cool."

"Well-established on the UK festival circuit, this Bristolian seven-piece directly channeled the spirit of 30s jazz greats andthe very swing-iest end of the country and bluegrass spectrum.Mischevious, passionate and lyrical, this was an uplifting andinfectious parade of American folk classics and originals. With boot lace ties, Stetson hats. The works. And all driven along with effortless style and serious washboard action by the eponymous Miss Jackson. This was a great and distinct act ontop of its game. And more importantly, the entire room, everysingle living thing, even the dust mites - had one hell of a goodtime"
