SWING NINJAS evolved from a paired-down 3 piece busking band (the highest paid canapé trio on the South Coast!), via 2 self-released (and swiftly super-ceded) cover version CDs (selling literally thousands of on the streets), to their current fully-formed incarnation as a New Orleans style big-band just signed to hip dance-based imprint FRESHLY SQUEEZED.

This album is their first of original material and features a 7-piece line-up of superb jazz talent plus assorted guests and backing singers. From such inauspicious beginnings,DO YA HALLELUJAH? comes as a revelation. A mongrel cross between Squirrel Nut Zippers, True Detective, Pokey LaFarge and Graham Green.It’s a blackly humorous and distinctly wry British gumbo of songs about life, lust & penitence. We love its quirky world-view.

The superb song writing and musicianship speak for themselves, but like a Louisianafuneral procession marching past the daytime juke-joint, DO YA HALLELUJAH? is an open door to a subterranean jazz cellar; a clarion call to the alley in Brighton’s labyrinthine Lanes. A place that lives in the imagination of the world. It’s early Dr John, loose living, late night bars, ‘resting’ thespians, a slipper-clad octogenarian land-lady, dusty parlour palms, clock menders and card sharps. This is the SWING NINJAS.
