“These multi-instrumentalists can transport you to the nightclubs of 1920’s New York and London, playing hot dance music and jazz.
This is mixed with vocals from the song-writing greats, crooners such as Bing Crosby and Al Bowlly, and hokem from the likes of Cliff ‘Ukulele Ike’ Edwards.
From Jump-Jive to swing, from the Charleston to Bossa-Nova, Hot Fingers’ wide range of styles and rhythms makes them popular with both sit-down audiences and dancers alike.
Although just a trio, the band can be seen removing two guitars, a double bass, a banjo, a mandolin, a ukulele, a clarinet, a tuba, a bass clarinet, and a pair of castanets from the band van. Hot Fingers are proud to play acoustic instruments without amplification for a truly authentic sound whenever possible.
A regular addition to Hot Fingers, Emily Campbell adds a touch of class with her plaintive vocals, drawing inspiration from the likes of Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald.”
