The Electric Swing Circus is a live 6-piece fusion of saucy 20’s swing and stomping electro beats. Drawing influence from 1920’s swing and jazz, the explosive sound of the Electric Swing Circus reverberates back through time, re-inventing the genre of electro-swing for an ever expanding, multi-generational audience.
The ESC’s sound is a powerful combination of electric double bass, vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, keys, live drums, dirty synths and electro beats. Fronted by a sassy female double-act, with extensive variety of vocal styles, the ESC delivers a consistently dazzling show. Their debut, self-titled album is available now on Ragtime Records.
The band are active in the electro-swing scene, running their own annual festival, Swingamajig, and regular club night, Hot Club de Swing, as well as curating acts for events and stages across Europe.
The band first formed in 2011, with their preview EP, Penniless Optimist, released in September that year since they have toured across 4 continents, produced two full length albums and are one of the most exciting bands on the live circuit
