The YTO is an Allstar band featuring:
twist-neck guitarist Ben Mandelson (3 Mustaphas 3, Billy Bragg)
reedman David Bitelli (Elton John, Loose Tubes)
Hammond and keys maestro Robin Harris (La Machine)
sizzling Latin trombonist Paul Taylor (Snowboy, Roberto Pla)
dazzling trumpeter Simon Finch (Eric Clapton, Paul Weller, Jools Holland)
rhythm kings Simon Edwards on bass and Roy Dodds on drums (Fairground Attraction and many more)
Soho’s retro king Natty Bo on vocals (Ska Cubano, Top Cats)
The band’s music pays homage to the genius and paranoia of Bergman, the unjustly forgotten beatnik funkateer who got the slums and salons on both sides of the water dancing to that pounding London beat.

The Yiddish Twist Orchestra released their debut album Let’s earlier this year to wide critical acclaim. Come and join us for this unique show and see what all the fuss is about.
