“A Beautiful Voice” – Eamonn Holmes
Bella and the Bourbon Boys are a jazz band with a difference, breathing new life into classic music. Drawing on influences such as American internet sensation Postmodern Jukebox, the band take jazz standards and modern songs and serve them up with a twist. You can expect to hear anything from Livin’ on a Prayer as a blues to Rockabye as a samba; and of course your favourite jazz standards from artists such as Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald.
The band is led by pianist and arranger Mike Paul-Smith and South African vocalist Amy Walton, who between them write all the band’s arrangements and have performed at the likes of Ronnie Scotts, Hideaway Streatham, The London Jazz Festival, The Montreux Jazz Festival and The London Jazz Festival.
