Hot Fingers’ eclectic mix of vintage acoustic music re-creates the gypsy swing of Django Reinhardt, the blues of Eddie Lang and Big Bill Broonzy and the sophisticated Latin rhythms of Argentinian Oscar Aleman. Emily Campbell brings a touch of class with her plaintive vocals, drawing inspiration from the likes of Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald while Spats Langham draws on crooners such as Bing Crosby and Al Bowlly and the hokem of Cliff ‘Ukulele Ike’ Edwards.
Hot Fingers’ music ranges from jump jive to swing, from the Charleston to bossa nova, from country blues to red hot jazz. Though only four in number, the band can be found removing two guitars, a double bass, a banjo, a mandolin, a ukulele, a clarinet, a tube, a bass clarinet, several harmonicas and a gong from the band van.
