The Background Sounds

About The Background Sounds

The Background Sounds are a Glasgow based quartet of thoroughly disrespectful swing-loving fools. Their unapologetic genius combinations of vintage jazz and perfect pop mash-ups is surprising, uplifting and as energetic as a wild night out on tequila. Winning over non-jazz crowds with every gig, they’ve been described as 'the hottest mash-up band in Scotland’.

See you on the dancefloor, read to boogie to our new single The Scotland Strip.
