They were two hours late, and hard to hear when they played, and not at all the same music they advertised. They did stay late, though, and played "karaoke" style at the end of the reception, which was appreciated.
Lively. Hot. Danceable. Toe-tappable. Gypsy Swing sensation LaLa Pomp brightens up any event: weddings, corporate events, private parties, and more.
LaLa Pomp takes its inspiration from the legendary Django Reinhardt, king of 1930s/1940s Hot Jazz, to bring you their wide repertoire of European-flavored swing and American standards.
Guitarist and arranger Alex Tomaino leads the swinging ensemble, which includes a revolving cast of members. You'll see and hear Alex on lead guitar with John Kelley playing rhythm and accordion in the video montage on this page. And no other acoustic duo brings you a richer, fuller sound.
But LaLa Pomp just as easily expands to a trio, quartet or quintet, with violin, bass, clarinet, vocals, and more to fit any function or budget--and make your event a swinging success. You'll hear live performances with the quartet in the audio tracks on this page.
Based in Portland, Oregon, LaLa Pomp is available to perform throughout the Pacific Northwest –Northern California to British Columbia--and beyond. Check out the Hot Jazz audio and video, below, then call us to book your event.
