Performance date and time
Friday, 16th March 2018
Over the last few years, London based klezmer/Balkan beats/gypsy jazz bohemians Tantz have taken the UK world/roots music scene apart with their full-on musical attack on audiences across the length and breadth of this nation. With incredible musical chops, an energy not seen since punk rock's halcyon days, there's something special about this band that manages to touch almost everyone who hears and sees them live, no matter what music they're into. Formed at the Leeds College of Music by friends to play the music they all loved - klezmer, gypsy jazz, Balkan music - at small venues in the city, they soon built up a loyal local following. A Tantz gig was not just a gig, it was a party. As they ventured further afield and word spread about them, the band's sound evolved over the years into this roaring blend of the traditional and the new that has seen them working non-stop at all kinds of events. World music festivals like WOMAD, rock/electronic gatherings like Bestival and Kendall Calling, clubnights like Balkanarama and Soul Rebels. They even played at the Brit Awards After Party 2014.
