Acid Bleed is an original six piece band playing a virtuoso blend of Hot Gypsy Swing with a Latin Groove. The repertoire covers a broad range from familiar standards to plucky originals all with the acid treatment.
Original Vocalist, Gerri Loong makes her long awaited return. She has a powerful and dynamic voice that mixes sensitivity with raw nerve and a desperate edge. She has all the necessary ingredients and more.
On lead Electric guitar is Adam Blenkhorn. His feisty playing has been known to cause palpitations. Hold on to your pacemakers. First Aid will be provided if necessary.
Jimmy (the Gypsy) Chiu is on Manouche guitar. He will dazzle you with his devilishly fast fingers. And that’s even before he picks up the guitar.
Josh (Big Wood) Kirk is on upright bass. He is a collector of fine double basses and fast cars. He plays with much heart and conviction. Peter Costin-Neilsen is on drums / percussion and manacles. He is the mysterious and illusive Mr. Cool of the band. Andrew Horowitz plays tenor and soprano saxophones and electric violin and mandolin. He just can’t make up his mind.
