ABOUT

The Gin Trap House Band are staging a revival of the best rhythm 'n' blues, jump-blues, and jazz of the 40s, 50s, and 60s. The band is a coming together of some the mightiest musicians in London. Their stompin' rhythms, infectious horns, and soulful vocals will make you want to dance all night long with their authentic versions of the real, original dance music. They play a whole host of tunes that you already love, and some tunes that you don’t know yet, but as soon as you hear them you’ll wonder why they aren’t already staples of your own collection. If you like the music of Ray Charles, Fats Domino, or Nina Simone you're in for a real treat.
