HULOS Jazz Soul Duo

Jazz Singer With Band - 1 Hour

Welcome to the musical world of Cris Tanzi Italian London based jazz/soul singer with a unique sultry voice. Hailing from Italy, Cris went to London to follow her passion for Music after being classically trained many years in Parma. In London Cris joined several indie bands as a singer, acoustic guitarist and co writer. In 2004 Cris started to write her own songs and formed her own indie/folk project simply called Cris Tanzi. One of her self produced tracks “My home” was selected by Mercedes Benz mixed tape and gained quite a bit of exposure thanks to an online label called Beatpick. After a few years of song writing and being active in the underground-unsigned London scene, Cris felt the need to expand her musical knowledge to be able to compose more interesting pieces. She started to listen to Jazz singers like Ella Fitzgerald and Billy Holiday and soon enough, was hooked into the genre so much so that she decided to complete a degree in Jazz at Middlesex University where she specialized in vocals and piano. Following her Jazz degree Cris Tanzi started to perform in many venues in London alone and as well as with talented musicians, learning the tricks of the trade and putting into practice all that she had learned during her Jazz course. She is now performing solo and with musicians for private and public functions.

Kingsfolk
(3)

Ceilidh Band For Parties

Verified bookings: 10
Kingsfolk goes out as a team of five; four musicians and a caller. Our lively music is ideal for Scottish ceilidhs and we have been bringing parties to life all over London for many years. A typical event for us starts when we play a few folk tunes to create an appropriate atmosphere. Then our caller (master of ceremonies) explains how a ceilidh works and he will call people onto the floor to start the first dance. We always start with a few easy dances, such as the Galopede or the OXO Reel and then, depending upon how many guests are experienced dancers, we may try more challenging dances. There are usually two sets of dances with a refreshment break in the middle. If the guests have their meal earlier, the break could be for cake cutting or for serving coffee. Each set of dancing is often an hour and a quarter long, but you may want to cut them down to one hour or even 45 minutes each. It all depends on your overall plan. At the end of the second set of dances, the caller will often try to get as many people as possible up onto the dance floor for a final dance, either a circle dance or Strip the Willow. Then the band will play a final instrumental piece which gives guests an opportunity for a bit of free dancing.

Recent review: We had a great experience from start to finish with these guys. Martin and I had a good chat through things over the phone in advance of our wedding to answer some of my questions and work out a few logistics and finer details. Martin was very reassuring and accommodating and followed up promptly with details as promised. On the big day, the band were fantastic. They got themselves set up and adapted without any trouble to a delayed start (our meal had overrun). The music sounded great and the calling was really clear and with just the right amount of explanations to get everyone dancing and more or less(!) doing the right things whilst still keeping things moving nicely. Nearly all our guests, young and old, ended up getting stuck in, which was great fun and made our day extra memorable for everyone. Highly recommended!
