"THE SWING NINJAS are that rare thing: a revivalist band that actually has contemporary relevance." RECORD COLLECTOR MAGAZINE.
Vintage style THE SWING NINJAS evolved from a walkabout busking trio via 3 self-released cover version albums, to their current fully-formed 7-piece line-up of Brighton jazz talent. A New Orleans influenced big-band whose first self-penned studio album of originals DO YA HALLELUJAH? (2015) showcased their quirky vision and on-point songwriting honed over many years working the streets, festivals and bars of Europe.
Since then they have continued a busy gigging schedule holding down a weekly swing-dance residency in Brighton while gigging weekends everywhere from the WOMAD festival (released as their 5th LIVE AT WOMAD album) to the BAHRAIN JAZZ FESTIVAL and even a short tenure in New Orleans itself.
Their new releases now build towards their 6th Album HONKY BARDOT (Autumn 2020). As before it features their acoustic vintage sound (no Electro here) and as such comes across as a mongrel cross between Squirrel Nut Zippers, Pokey Lafarge, Dr John and Allen Toussaint.
Listening to the Ninja’s is to pass an open door to a subterranean jazz cellar; a clarion call to the back alleys of Brighton’s labyrinthine Lanes. Part jaded lyrical cynicism, part joyous musical celebration.
