Matthew Gest's Boogie Troop
  • Brighton Fringe

Blues and boogie piano.The trio groove, swing and shuffle their way through an intoxicating mix of original tunes, covers, rock'n'roll classics and the occasional rag. Influenced by the New Orleans piano sounds of Fats Domino, Dr John, Professor Longhair and James Booker, the show is relentlessly energetic, appealing not just to blues and jazz fans, generating feel-good vibes, dancing and ultimately fun. Matthew has performed at the world famous Ronnie Scotts and international blues festivals, and toured with a number of international number one-artists.
