Since their formation in 2001, Bristol (UK) based band The Zen Hussies have established themselves as a formidable live act with their original brand of swinging stomp and song.
A mighty brass and reed section blow hot and heavy to the roots rhythm section of guitars, double bass and drums, and their well crafted and often surprising musical arrangements are the perfect sonic vehicle for the infectious lyrics and melodies of front-man, instrumentalist and lead vocalist Jules Landau (AKAJonah Flatfoot).
Now with three critically acclaimed, full length LPs under their braces – ‘Flatfoot Sharpsuit’ (2005), ‘Continental Adaptor’ (2008), and ‘Troubled Feet’ (2010) - The Zen Hussies have shown themselves to be more than capable of capturing the e¬ervescence of their live performances on record, and prove popular with DJs and fans across Europe and beyond.
Most recently striking distribution deals in Japan with HMV and the legendary Disc Shop Zero in Tokyo. The band are also currently at work on a fourth LP due for release in summer 2013.
Their large repertoire of chie y original songs encompass a broad array of stylings made uniquely their own – Jump Jive, Swing and Dixieland Jazz, Ska, Rhythm and Blues and Gypsy Klezmer to name but a few are all delivered with a feisty dose of punk attitude that makes their live gigs memorable - and their current six piece line-up is tighter and stronger than ever.
