Dizzy Birds are a traditional jazz band formed by six young international musicians based in Berlin. Although each member comes from a different background, they all share the same passion for the oldest jazz in the world which was born in New Orleans at the beginning of last century.
Having quickly gained recognition in the swing dancing community and club scene of Berlin the band moved on from the streets and undergrounds to jazz festivals and international dance events in Europe becoming one of the best hot jazz bands in the scene, often collaborating with some of the finest musicians from New Orleans. (Meschiya Lake, Russell Welch, Joseph Faison…) The style of the band resurrects the original rough and powerful sound of early jazz where music was meant to be hot, entertaining and danceable. Inspired by the greatest composers such as Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Louis Armstrong’s hot five, Sidney Bechet, the band delivers fresh interpretations and thrilling arrangements, exciting all kinds of audiences from dancers, jazz connoisseurs to party crowds.
Dizzy Birds recently recorded their fourth album after coming back from touring Switzerland, Italy and Germany, which will be released in November together with an exciting EP featuring the great Meschiya Lake and Russell Welch.
