About Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival: Shake Em Up Jazz Band / Meschiya Lake

Roll-up for a night of classic New Orleans jazz. The sensational all female Shake Em Up Jazz Band open the show with their brilliant interpretations of early jazz favourites, played with verve, panache and great virtuosity. Charismatic and bursting with personality, singer Meschiya Lake croons, purrs and testifies as she takes a journey back in time to 1930s New Orleans, swinging to Ragtime Jazz. “Close to the end of the set, she sang a Bessie Smith blues with the line, ‘I’m as good as any woman in your town.’ In New Orleans music, that’s a bold statement – but she is, and better, too.”(New Orleans Times) It’s the first time at EJBF for the lady with the big voice and even bigger stage presence, and we’re sure she’s going to wow audiences, as she’s joined by Edinburgh favourites, The Tenement Jazz Band.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh Jazz and Blues Festival: Shake Em Up Jazz Band / Meschiya Lake are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
