Oo-Bop-Sh’bam takes it’s influences from the big band combo’s of the 1940’s and 50’s. Gin drenched party’s, smoky dives and city nightclubs, where swinging and singing rules the day. Lead singer Robert Wray is joined by pumping boogie-woogie maestro James Lunn on piano, Alan Savage laying down the big beat, Pete Pritchard pulsafing double bass, the ace horns of Alby Green on tenor sax and John Willmott on baritone & tenor sax, with Malcolm Barclay on lead guitar.
The band is receiving great reviews wherever they play!
Recent gigs include 100 Club Oxford Street, Queen Elizabeth Hall and London Fashion Week. Private Parties for Chelsea Football Club, Lady Sarah Armstrong Jones and Lenny Henry.
