Formed in late 2014, Jambouree combine fresh funk with a blend of modern jazz, hiphop and blues. A dynamic student five piece of young multi-instrumentalists sourced from the heart of Edinburgh, their instrumental jazz fusion combines infectiously rhythmic grooves with inventive improvisation and syncopated synchronicity.
The Rising Souls
To put it bluntly, if you haven’t seen The Rising Souls yet then you must be a poor unfortunate type who lives in a dark cave somewhere on the outskirts of nowhere. For the last year this Edinburgh based 3 piece have swept through the Central Belt of Scotland leaving no ear unprovoked. Not to mention universal praise at the 2013 Edinburgh Festival and gigs in London, Essex, Prague and the momentous siege of Larkhall! No gig is too big, no gig too small. Their catchy soulful tunes never fail to impress and their presence on stage is infectiously beautiful. These lads LOVE what they do and this is evident when you watch them live. They have a subconscious chemistry between them, a melding of minds and spirit. When you watch them it feels like you are a part of something special. Their well-rehearsed set feels fresh yet established. This is most likely due to the fact that they often throw in an improvised jam amongst their already rock solid set of tunes.
