Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

Meet the Fireflies.

The Fireflies are a buzzing, glowing collection of musicians sent from sonic space to tickle your ear drums with a violin bow, a guitar pick, some killer vocal chords, big bass strings and a whole tribe of delectable percussion vibrations! Fusing jazz with a little Latin inspired happiness, you won't be able to stop yourself from catching the dancing bug and shimmering all night long. The Fireflies are a mischevious bunch who take your favourite tunes and turn them into something to make you beam and laugh - you might even catch a few original tunes in there too, if they don't fly away too soon!
Fireflies comprises, Elaine Binney on violin, Richard Gilroy on acoustic guitar (from downtown Lester Brown), Rachel Mate on vocals who is a brand new jazz vocalist to the scene, Nick Alevroyannis on percussion (from Principal 3) and Dom Hornsby on bass (from Manilishi).
Elaine Binney.
