The Festival Club: Rumba de Bodas image

Rumba de Bodas + Chambers Street Collective House Band & guests + Rebecca Vasmant.

The party goes on until late at the Festival Club long after the other venues have closed up shop.

Dance the night away to bands and DJs in the Teviot Row, compare notes on the shows you’ve loved or loathed over a drink or soak up the summer night vibe (and the odd jazz fest star) in the glorious open air rooftop bar.

Closing the Festival Club are the Italian troubadours of the sensuous and sublime who make it their mission to party: the explosive Rumba de Bodas. Their high octane carnival jazz mix of latin grooves, Balkan festive music, swing, ska, reggae, is an ever-changing musical mix. From starting life as a loose collective in the backstreet music bars of Bologna, they’re now an international phenomenon packing out Festivals of all musical styles. The band that everyone loves return after a string of sell out shows last year, with brand new music from their latest album ‘Super Power’.

Our house band (featuring members of the Chambers Street Collective) backs Festival guests dropping-in for a lively, hard blowing jam session.

The outstanding Glasgow-based DJ/producer Rebecca Vasmant take us into the small hours with her fresh new take on dance music, bridging the gap between jazz and electronic music.
