Mambo Jambo might just be the BIGGEST acoustic duo you’ll ever see! This truly unique two-piece have their own rhythmic and joyful sound, a dozen or more instruments, male/female harmony vocals, a friendly stage presence, and a seemingly endless variety of roots styles up their sleeves. Pete Jack and Frankie Banham continue to gather admirers at shows and festivals the length and breadth of the country-and beyond with their enviable collection of songs and tunes.
A fabulous musical treat is in store wherever they roll up. Their tour bus packed to the brim with sax, guitars, banjo, clarinet, flute, accordion, Cuban tres, Brazilian ukulele, all kinds of percussion including suitcase and spoons, plus another instrument or two if they find room – all expertly played.
2017 will be their busiest year to date, with tours from Cornwall to Scotland and across to Europe, while somehow fitting in several exciting shows for the Hull City of Culture year.
