Leading band in the electro-swing scene to play at FAB Festival 2018
Middlewich, Cheshire; Middlewich FAB Festival are today announcing their headliner for Sunday’s free concert. ‘Electric Swing Circus’, a six piece electro swing band from Birmingham, is set to play the Main Stage, Market Field on 17th June, closing the festival with an electric performance.
‘Electric Swing Circus’ are a full time, touring band on the international circuit, whose live set includes electric double bass, vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, keys, drums, synths and electro beats. Fronted by a sassy female double-act, Vicki Olivia and Fe Salomon, ‘Electric Swing Circus’ delivers a consistently dazzling show. They are known for their unique style of 20’s swing combined with stomping electric beats. Since first appearing in 2011 with their EP ‘penniless Optimist’, they have played at several festivals across the UK and joined tours across Europe and New Zealand. In December 2011 they won the 'Best Live Act’ award at ElectroSwing People’s Favourite Awards.
Following this early success, they released their debut self-titled album ‘Electric Swing Circus’ in May 2013 on Ragtime Records. In early 2017 their second album ‘It Flew By’ appeared onto the scene. The record embraces their familiar swing and electro roots whilst experimenting into new territory with reggae, rock, dubstep, disco and pop. With an explosive sound that reverberates back through time, they have their own unique style of swing, seen through their website www.electricswingcircus.com.
