MC Splash

Mambo Chutney puts a tap in your toe, a tune in your ear, happiness in your whistle and a skip in your step - spontaneous dancing has not been unknown!

Our original South African township sets have now developed into a broad range of tunes from around the world seen through a particular ‘Mambo Chutney jazz prism’.  A jazz standard may occasionally appear in the mix when it earns its place and links to a tune or theme from what might loosely be called world music jazz.

The band is an eight piece line-up which, depending on event or location, will play unplugged or amplified.  It combines these options with instrumental doubling of various kinds to offer a range of flavours – many gigs allow us to go à la carte and play selections from either menu.

Sounds interesting and need a band for your event? - drop us a line on info@packapunch.co.uk

Come and hear a unique jazz blend: unfamiliar tunes offering engaging jazz and familiar tunes presented with a distinctive seasoning.  Mambo Chutney – jazz flavours from around the world.
