Skedaddle is made up of professional musicians with many years of performing experience behind them. We draw inspiration from a rich history of amazingly talented musicians who wrote great tunes that have stood the test of time. A lot of our material is based on New Orleans jazz from the early 1900s. Legends such as Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald, Cab Calloway, Louis Jordan, Fats Waller, Bessie Smith and Louis Prima all wrote and performed incredible tunes, and we have the good fortune to share this joyful music with audiences today. We also draw inspiration from gypsy jazz greats such as Django Reinhardt, and an eclectic mix of klezmer and Balkan gypsy songs and dances.
