part of a series of tour dates in support of the new album 'The Blues And I Should Have A Party". Zoë Schwarz Blue Commotion “is a truly independent and original band". The whole band, in its entirety, creates a luxurious and irresistible sound, displaying great skills and artistic finesse. Zoë Schwarz’ dynamic and commanding vocal delivery is both eclectic and suave at the same time; just like a chameleon, one part Janis Joplin, one Billie Holiday, and one Nina Simone”. The band’s exciting live set is based around rootsy originals; featuring strong catchy riffs, interesting arrangements and exciting grooves featuring Rob's electrifying, and unmistakable touch and flow on guitar. The highly accomplished rhythm section of Pete Whittaker-Hammond organ and Paul Robinson-drums (Nina Simone, Van Morrison, Paul McCartney to name a few) bring massive musical authority and the ability to push the music in unpredictable and exciting directions. Zoë Schwarz Blue Commotion have made a considerable impact these last five years, and is one of the band’s that have added a fresh approach and vibrancy to the UK jazz & blues scene. “Innovative spark, virtuoso playing and a dare-devil attitude” - Pete Feenstra - Get Ready To Rock, Feb 2017 "Incendiary vocal, guitar and organ work" - Ed Mitchell, The Blues Magazine, 2016 “A great band.

Very nice indeed” - Paul Jones Rhythm & Blues, BBC radio 2, 2017 "A whip-crack band… expressive voice… impressive material” - Classic Rock The Blues Magazine, 2016 “When it comes to sexy and sassy Zoe hits it out of the park” - Andy Sniper, Intl music news, April 2017
