Bamboozle is an English rock/retro swing band, formed in Canterbury, Kent, 2016. It was founded by guitarist and songwriter of the well respected band, The Keytones, Jim Knowler (guitar/vocals), and Singer/Double Bass Player, Serena Sykes (bass/vocals), as a project following the break-up of The Keytones. The group got its name from a match report, when Jim, (an avid Arsenal supporter), read that one player Bamboozled the opposition with a rather stylish move....
Dave Kirk (steel/vocals), formerly of The Ian Highland band and drummer Shaun o’Keeffe (drums/vocals), formerly of The Keytones both joined to complete the line up.
The band initially started playing in their home counties, but quickly expanded to bookings throughout the UK and Europe. With a line up change in early 2017, O’Keefee was replaced by Darrell Higham’s (Imelda May, Kat Men etc) long-term drummer, Les Curtis (drums/vocals) the band Bamboozle felt perfect.
Known for their fresh, exciting, upbeat music and Sykes’ fearless double bass stunts during performances, the band have toured extensively, performing at many major rockabilly festivals throughout Europe this Summer headlining Twinwood Festival, Feel The 50’s and Vlissingen Vintage Festival along with many many more....
Bamboozle are currently managed by The team at Yellow Brick Music, headed up by Meredith Cork, the founding manager of the band Garbage, and represented Butch Vig, Womack and Womack, Jimmy Miller, Marcella Detroit, Glen Matlock, amongst others and Olly Andrews who has working in social media and marketing for One Little Indian for Bjork, Kill It Kid and Asgeir to name a few.
Autumn sees the band back in the studio putting some finishing touches to some new songs before they release their new single Red Right Hand early next year, an exciting interpretation of the Nick Cave single, work on the new LP and hitting the road hard.... 2018 is going to be - well, Rockin’...
