THE RED HOT RHYTHM MAKERS
This all female band, from Central Scotland, has been assembled as a response to Ali Affleck’s pioneering and critically acclaimed ‘Preaching Divas’ project; which focuses on the ground-breaking (and mostly forgotten) women of jazz and blues. Since The Red Hot Rhythm Makers went ‘public’ in summer 2018 they have received rave reviews from very happy audiences.
Ali Affleck on washboard and vocals, Ali Tod on guitar and vocals, Danielle Price on tuba and vocals, Kassandra E’Silva on reeds and vocals, Sarah Findlay on trumpet and vocals and Alex Stewart on trombone and vocals. The band provide fun, accessible New Orleans and Mississippi jazz and blues. Their repertoire consists of old American prohibition era folk, hot roots jazz, pre-electric blues, hokum and rather large nods to their Scottish heritage
