Here we go with the first Wodka Wednesday at Jamboree, extravagent inebriation and musical decadance with Fred Snow and The Bootleg Trio <3 with Special Guests this month, Akimbo (Pedro Velasco & Nell Greco).
Fred Snow & The Bootleg Trio deliver gnarly old barrel house tunes, street smart wit & a lingering impression of a Hamburg Rough-house. Quoting Woody Guthrie, Tom Waits, Marlene Dietrich, David Bowie, 3 Mustaphas 3, Jacques Brel, Agnes Bernelle, Alex Harvey, Queen & Velvet Underground as fonts of scant reverence. Usually found loitering in High Society weddings, Shanghai award ceremonies & exclusive gatherings.
The group is fronted by Fred Snow, who has written & recorded original material for TV & award winning movie soundtracks, providing opportunities to visit 6 different continents of the world with his own music, bands & solo acts, having been booked to appear with such luminaries as Camille O’Sullivan, Paul O’Grady, Paloma Faith, Kid Creole, Lana Del Rey, Jessie J., Brian Ferry, the Buena Vista Social Club as well as Nile Rogers & Chic!

Akimbo is all askew. It's messing with pop, playing with jazz, and finding space in time. Created from a love of complex simplicity, angular harmony and serious fun, Pedro Velasco and Nell Greco lead this pedal-tastic project, seeking out the sweetest musical spots that often hide in plain sight. Inspired by the likes of Tom Waits, The Dirty Three, Eva Cassidy and Bill Frisell, Akimbo play the music they love, whether original or covered, and are ever in flux. https://www.facebook.com/musicAkimbo/videos/545960305802455/
