If you like your musical fun in a big brass band style then on Saturday night at Rhythmtree you are in for a very special lung busting treat when the twelve piece Voodoo Love Orchestra storm our stage.
We’re sure you’ll lap up their interpretations of classic tracks filtered through a lens of funk, big band swing, Jamaican ska and Colombian cumbia and be blown away by their non-stop on stage party.
Since their formation in 2012, Voodoo Love Orchestra have reached number one in the World Music Network charts, received heavy rotation on BBC Radio 2 & 6 Music from Jamie Cullum, Craig Charles and Claire Teal and gathered rave reviews in papers such as The Times and Evening Standard and throughout the monthly music magazines.
Harking back to the big band sound of 1960s Latin America via the back streets of New Orleans the infectious, maverick and irresistibly swinging street music of Voodoo Love Orchestra is more of an invasion than a performance with a euphoric riot of musicians overseen by a megaphone-wielding High Priestess invoking the spirits of celebration.
Delving deep into the heart of the tropics this globe-trotting band deliver a joyous salute to the roots of carnival. With a line up of sousaphone, trombone, trumpet, baritone sax, tenor sax, alto sax, clarinet, vocals, military drumcorps and latin percussion this is one party you definitely mustn’t miss!
“A force to be reckoned with driven by irresistible rhythms and a
powerful but nimble horn section.”
“Storming! Double groovy”
Craig Charles Radio 2
