The Bandits are a Cardiff-based Jazz Group, performing sophisticated music from all eras of Jazz and even some personalised interpretations of modern popular songs. We take huge delight in surprising the audience with jazz covers of some well-known pop songs and TV themes, sometimes completely improvised on the spot! but if that’s not quite what you are loking for, we also have a catalogue of over 250 jazz standards to dress your evening in style. Although we market ourselves as a jazz group, we also play blues, funk and latin. If you want something traditional, different and/or interesting, book The Bandits! We frequently appear at various venues in South Wales, including Moonshine at Lab22 and The Dead Canary, as well as for weddings and private functions in the region.
Bass12 is a riot jazz band guaranteed to liven up any event and make some serious noise.
The band is influenced by Funk, Blues, Pop, Ska and pretty much everything else you can think of playing an array of well known tunes like you’ve never heard them before as well as some original tracks. We work on the principle that music should be danced to. If it’s got high energy brass and percussion, you can’t beat it.
