About

Wales-based FiddleBop plays Gypsy jazz zing: updated! On violin, Spanish guitar, keyboard, and fretless bass. And we sing too, with four voices in harmony.
FiddleBop's jazz is sophisticated but not pretentious or stuffy. Is danceable but not rhythmically bland. Has plenty of improvised solos but is still tuneful and melodic.
We play jazz that's drawn from all of the genre's century-long history. Look forward to our unique beggars-in-velvet treatment of get-up-and-dance jazz from the 1920s (when "jazz was king"), 1930s chilli-hot swing, and bop and cool post-bop. Also jazz-flavoured classic pop, some folk-jazz, and our own creations. All with Gypsy zing and passion!...
