The Zen Hussies

The inimitable Zen Hussies have been dutifully administering original goodtime 'swingska boogaloo' at pubs, clubs, weddings, wakes, boat-bailings, bah-mitzvahs, house clearances, festies & coffee mornings in Europe and beyond, since 2001, recently they were awarded the dubious title of the West Countrys' Most Exclusive Drinking Club. The Zen Hussies are renowned for their effervescent live shows, and indeed infamous via their legendary 5 hour sets at Shambala festival in 2003/4.

Vocals, Cornet, Trombone, Baritone Sax, Bass & Bb Clarinets, Harmonica, Double Bass, Guitars, Drums, Saw, Kazoo


'Born showmen with one eye on the absurd, the Hussies play songs that lodge in the head like well aimed bullets, creating a sea of beaming revellers on a dancefloor bursting at the seams...' Venue Magazine, 2005

'Film Noir & Ska collide with a distinctive blue tone to the two tone...the Hussies transported me to a more fearless era...I almost breathed down a strangers' neck...' Decode Magazine 2005 'Boundary-Decimating...skanktastic combo who leave no danceflooor unshaken' Buena Vista Social Club Presents 2007... Psychadelic Jazz Clowns!!!
