15th May: Flashmob

This week guitarist Ryan Williams brings his quartet Flashmob to LUME, featuring some of the London scene’s top jazz musicians.

flashmobThe band’s debut album ‘Generals’ was released in September 2011 on the prestigious F-IRE label to much critical acclaim: John Fordham made Flashmob his ‘ones to watch’ in 2012, saying that the band’s music ‘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 as well as performing at the London Jazz Festival, The Vortex and Jez Nelson’s ‘Jazz In The Round’.

Flashmob completed a second Jazz Services supported nationwide tour in November 2013 and are due to record their second album in 2014. We look forward to welcoming them to Long White Cloud!
