The Zen Hussies

The inimitable Zen Hussies have been dutifully administering original goodtime 'swingska boogaloo' at pubs, clubs, weddings, wakes, boat-bailings, bah-mitzvahs, house clearances, festies & coffee mornings in Europe and beyond, since 2001, recently they were awarded the dubious title of the West Countrys' Most Exclusive Drinking Club. The Zen Hussies are renowned for their effervescent live shows, and indeed infamous via their legendary 5 hour sets at Shambala festival in 2003/4.


Vocals, Cornet, Trombone, Baritone Sax, Bass & Bb Clarinets, Harmonica, Double Bass, Guitars, Drums, Saw, Kazoo


'Born showmen with one eye on the absurd, the Hussies play songs that lodge in the head like well aimed bullets, creating a sea of beaming revellers on a dancefloor bursting at the seams...' Venue Magazine, 2005

'Film Noir & Ska collide with a distinctive blue tone to the two tone...the Hussies transported me to a more fearless era...I almost breathed down a strangers' neck...' Decode Magazine 2005 'Boundary-Decimating...skanktastic combo who leave no danceflooor unshaken' Buena Vista Social Club Presents 2007... Psychadelic Jazz Clowns!!!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
