Fresh from touring the USA, UK, Australia and Japan, Gabby Young and Other Animals high kick their way into KOKO with a swashbuckling musical circus that you will never forget.
The “World Finest Purveyors of Circus Swing” (Radio 4) combine Young’s pitch-perfect vocals with lashings of brass, woodwind, strings, jazz notes and Balkan beats to produce “something vital and new” (The Sunday Times).
With a list of accolades as long as her stripy tights, Gabby Young is a flame haired force of nature, telling other-worldly tales through heart wrenching melodies and show-stopping jazzy belters. Impossible to pigeonhole, Gabby Young and Other Animals are an avant garde fusion of global influences inhabiting an aural antiques shop in a century yet to come. You have never seen anything like it.
