SIX CITY STOMPERS
The most succesful young jazzband in Scandinavia.
Six City Stompers consists of young talented and acclaimed musicians that set a very high musical standard and contribute with a refreshing breeze to the traditional jazz scene.
All of the members of the band have a childhood with Louis Armstrongs music in common. Not many young people play classic, traditional and New Orlenas Jazz, and with their love for the genre it was therefore natural for the six boys to form the band Six City Stompers.
Six City Stompers play mostly vocal jazz, with the young talented crooner and sax player Mads Mathias in front, but also beautiful instrumental arrangements. Some songs have been found in the book of good old evergreens and others are originals.
Their glow and joy is easy to hear when they play, and with their age and enthusiasm they refresh the jazz scene and attract a younger and wider crowd.
In the summer 2006 they won the “European Championship of Traditional Jazz” publics first prize in Paris, with votes counting more than double all the other participating bands alltogether, and won several soloist prizes aswell.
The band was formed in 2004 and since then they have toured mostly in Scandinavian countries, but also in other parts of Europe and China.
They have played on almost all the Danish jazz festivals, played live on national television in Denmark(DR1), and Norway (NR1).
They have taken pride in participating in several New Orleans charity concerts, supporting the music community of New Orleans.
