The Shoeshiners Band brings to life the repertoire and ambiance of old Harlem jazz clubs. This orchestra, composed of multi-instrumentalist artists, was born from the ambitious desire to reconnect with the roots of swing. Singer Alice Martinez superbly embodies this role and sticks remarkably to the repertoire; They offer us musical proposals of all kinds and for all tastes, ranging from sounds worthy of New Orleans to the most romantic ballads.
The orchestra is born from the desire of the young generation of jazz to reconnect with the roots of this music and its visceral links with dance … This dance is lindy hop, which we danced at the Savoy Ballroom and in the streets of Harlem. The music is swing, that of Count Basie, Jimmie Lunceford, Chick Webb… The one that irresistibly puts a smile on your face and joy in your heart! Dynamic and playful, this orchestra can give you only one desire: get up from your seats!
