Maletta Jackson and the Reputations draw on the finest traditions of classic country, folk and Americana to bring you original songs of love, death and heartbreak, guaranteed to melt the coldest of cold cold hearts. Since recording their debut EP ‘The Crypt Recordings’ last summer, the band have been taking the dive bars and honky-tonks of London by storm with their distinctive sound, combining lapsteel, banjo, guitar and bass with tales of astronomically-inspired murder, malevolent facial hair and bad romance.

The Swamp Stomp String Band are not your average Americana band. Twangy Banjos, driving Guitars and a thudding Double Bass sit behind anything from drinking songs that’ll have the room stomping their feet and shooting tequila to ballads that’ll break even the most toughest folk, to ragtime songs of bar fights and gambling. The London based duo can often be found busking by the side of Thames in the day and performing in any haunt from high end cocktails joints to dimly lit dive bars at night.
Taking a mixture of Jazz, Country, Swing, Blues and Ragtime – it is safe to say their music is there to be enjoyed by people young and old, rich or poor, or who just love to stamp their feet and have a ho-down.
