The Fliss Gorst Band are a dazzling London based band who perform authentic swing, 1950s rock n'roll, jumping jive and new takes on old classics for your listening and dancing pleasure.
The band are led by saxophonist Fliss Gorst and consist of a stellar line up of London's finest musicians. They’re thrilled to be joined by guest vocalist Lauren Bush for this very special evening.
Experienced performers, FGB have performed nation wide and enjoy a residency at Poppies Camden. They’ve appeared on the main stage at Ronnie Scott's, Pizza Express Jazz Club, The Spice Of Life Soho and are looking forward to this fabulous night celebrating all that was best of the swing era at this prestigious venue.
Prepare for a good time! Grounded Movement directors Temujin Gill and Sunanda Biswas with associate artist Wendy Steatham will lead two short Jazz / Lindy Hop workshops on the night to get you swinging to the sound of the live band! Even if you’ve never danced before these guys will get you up on your feet and feeling great!
