Harboured Sounds

Screamin’ Miss Jackson & The Slap Ya’ Mama Big Band

Screamin’ Miss Jackson and The Slap Ya’ Mama Big Band say

Bristol based Screamin’ Miss Jackson and the Slap Ya’ Mama Big Band play a brand of music that stands all by itself – Hokum Blues and Hillbilly Fervour combine with Ragtime and Western Swing to produce an unstoppable force as powerful as a hurricane.

A rambunctious seven-piece featuring guitars, mandolin, harmonica, banjo, double bass, washboard and drums, the band have performed at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Grillstock,  and are set to be gracing festival stages all over Europe in 2015. Signed to Little Paradise Records they are due to release their debut long player in spring 2015.

“This Harboured Sounds session gave Screamin’ Miss Jackson and the Slap Ya’ Mama Big Band the opportunity to do what they love best, playing in the open air in the sunshine, just like all their favorite New Orleans Street Bands” Screamin’ Miss Jackson and the Slap Ya’ Mama Big Band

‘Bristol, England’s Screamin’ Miss Jackson & The Slap Ya’ Mama Big Band are as mischievous as they are a good-hearted collection of players utilizing their love for tradition and having a blast congregating and sharing what they love, down to basics music.’ Walter Price – Global Texan Chronicles

Old jug band & country songs like you’ve never heard them before, from foot-stompin’ banjo bonanzas to tear-jerking blues ballads. Screamin’ Miss Jackson & The Slap Ya’ Mama Big Band are one of the brightest new additions to the UK roots music circuit and have in the short time they have been performing built a sizeable fan base both far and wide.
