The Birmingham based group will bring their brand of classy 20s swing with stomping live instruments to St Mary’s Hall from 7.30pm.

The ESC’s sound is an exciting combination of vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, electric double bass, keys, live drums, dirty synths and electro beats.

Fronted by a powerful female double-act, with extensive variety of vocal styles, the ESC delivers a consistently dazzling show.

The band’s sound reverberates back through time, re-inventing the genre of electro-swing for a modern audience.

The band formed in 2011 and have since toured four continents, playing major festivals and headline shows all over the world. They’ve released two genre defining albums on Ragtime Records: Electric Swing Circus and It Flew By.

Opening the night will be South Devon’s very own masters of reggae, ska and dub, The Datura Roots Collective.

Tickets are £10 in advance from www.freeoftigersevents.co.uk or £13 on the door.
