Bratislava Hot Serenaders at Tynemouth


I've heard more hot dance orchestras during the course of the past seven days than I've heard in the past 50 years and it has to be said that the Bratislava Hot Serenaders are probably the best of the lot.
Despite the longest public soundcheck in history, music and noise interference from another stage and below average temperatures BHS delivered the goods.
In particular, the Boswell Sisters - reincarnated as the Serenader Sisters - impressed with their vocal harmonising as well as lookng good.
The soloists, whilst perhaps not out and out improvisers, played with lots of drive and fire in their bellies and the ensembles captured the flavour of the era with tricky saxophone trios and tightly muted brass out choruses.
The drummer even had a gong - how authentic can you get?
