Bratislava Christmas with Fats Jazz Band

Christmas markets in Bratislava will also sound like swing!

In addition to the most beautiful Christmas and winter songs as recorded in the 1930s and 1940s, the Fats Jazz Band will also bring songs from their latest Christmas albums.

Seven top musicians and two charming singers will play songs from their ‘Swingin’ Christmas’ album. Known, but also less known, however even more magical musical compositions with Christmas or winter themes will be listed. You will hear famous “Jingle Bells”, “White Christmas”, “Let It Snow” or the duet “Baby It’s Cold Outside” in beautiful swing arrangements.

Fats Jazz Band brings oldstyle songs, which its authentic, stylish and spontaneous interpretation brings to the present. It was spontaneity that gave the music of this period its charm, and it will undoubtedly bring you to the presence of the Fats Jazz Band. The sound of the orchestra evokes something timeless in people.

Fats Jazz Band is a first class nine-member orchestra steeped in the hot jazz and swing music from late 1920s till 1940s. It was initiated by Ladislav Fanzowitz, one of the best present-day Slovak pianists. The orchestra plays original hot jazz and swing music which takes you to another world, makes your blood boil and brings you back in the time to the era of elegance, glamour gowns and hot parties.

Fats Jazz Band is authentic, Ladislav Fančovič transcribes carefully chosen tunes from old shellacs by ear to music scores. That’s why you have a unique opportunity to listen to the original arrangements as they were played by early jazz legends in their time. Furthemore, the band also uses reconstructed array of historucal music instruments and stylish clothes. The whole impression of the orchestra fully grasps the period and style that this orchestra represents.

Enjoy the Advent at the Franciscan Square in the rhythm of swing. Preferably with punch in hand!
