This Sunday at The Salisbury - FLASHMOB at London Jazz Festival
Led by guitarist Ryan Williams, Flashmob are a quartet of London’s most in demand and dynamic young musicians. Their debut album ‘Generals’ was released in September 2011 on the prestigeous F-IRE label to much critical acclaim.
The Guardian’s John Fordham made Flashmob his ‘one’s to watch’ for 2012, saying that the band’s “current F-IRE label debut should widen the audience for its mix of lyrical jazz and taut contemporary rhythms.” Following the release of ‘Generals’, the band featured in Jazzwise magazine and embarked on a Jazz Services supported nationwide tour aswell as performances at the London Jazz Festival, The Vortex and Jez Nelson’s new comtemporary showcase, Jazz In The Round.
Flashmob are due to record their follow up release at the end of 2013.
