About Colonel Spanky's Love Ensemble

Party band
Expect something brand spanking new: knees-up dancing, raucous rapping, sexy saxophoning, rock-star guitar solos... a right old shindig.

Colonel Spanky's Love Ensemble is a home-grown Cambridge jazz band (with personal endorsement from Maxi Jazz from Faithless). With no real musical direction apart from playing some sick, danceable tunes, we'll twist anything from New Orleans Riot Jazz to smooth Soul and classic Funk (and even 00's R&B) into the unique Colonel Spanky's sound. If you want any of this...: "knees-up dancing, crazy sing-alongs, raucous rapping, sexy saxophoning, rock-star guitar solos, a mahoossive sousaphone...and if you're good, crowd surfing" ...then please get in touch! Sexy.
