Rhythm & Blue Martyn (aka The Fallen Heroes)
Entry Requirements: Under 18s to be accompanied by an appropriate adult
Expect to hear an interesting mix of originals plus some hot rhythm & blues, swinging jazz & a dash of ska including numbers from Ray Charles, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, all influenced by the music of New Orleans where band leaders, the brothers Emile & Ben Martyn grew up, albeit infused with their own current, more contemporary sound. Ben, on vocals and double bass, and Emile Martyn, on drums and backing vocals, began their musical career in New Orleans, leading to extensive contact with local legends such as George Lewis, John Handy and Harold Dejan of the world-famous Olympia Brass Band. Returning to Europe they created their own particular sound, playing New Orleans music but with a twist, writing original compositions in a funky New Orleans manner but playing in a more up to date, modern London style.
