The Shirt Tail Stompers
(Friday & Saturday)
--> Listen to the Shirt Tail Stompers playing "Runnin' Wild"
The Shirt Tail Stompers have quickly been recognised as one of Europe's best social dance bands. Formed in 2010 for the London Lindy Exchange and led by Trumpeter Steve Coombe, they have played numerous dance camps and shows in over 20 countries all over the world. They have a passion for swing music and movement, with their extensive knowledge and experience of social dancing, they are definitely the band to dance to at IsThereHop? 2019.
Truly appreciating the art of swing and knowing it's place in history, they are heavily influenced by Fats Waller, Fletcher Henderson, Count Basie and many other greats from the swing and trad jazz era of the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s. They are also influenced by the likes of the early Duke Ellington, Sidney Bechet and the old musical roots of New Orleans.
Last year alone saw them playing for dancers in Sweden, France, South Korea, Hungary, The Netherlands, Greece, Norway, Italy and throughout the UK to rave reviews.
