Hailing from Chicago in the United States, Bowmanville strives to bring the hip sensibilities of Hot Club Jazz from 1930s Paris mingled with the influences born of Chicago’s global crossroads to a wider audience. Led by violinist Ethan Adelsman, with Graham Nelson on harmonica/vocals, Noah Plotkin on drums, Oliver Horton on bass, and Mason Jiller on guitar, the group draws inspiration from diverse musical backgrounds to push the boundaries of their craft.
The band can be heard on their debut self-titled album, which was produced by Grammy nominated producer Doug Nelson (Donovan, Little Feat, Pinetop Perkins) and engineered by Larry Millas (Ides of March). Newcity Music called the album “a burst of pure joy” and writes that the group has the “ability to swing the living hell out of whatever they do”.
Thrilling audiences the world over, Bowmanville can be seen regularly at venues such as Space, Andy’s Jazz Club, the Whistler, Chicago Jazz Festival, Fitzgerald’s, the Acorn Theater, and has performed internationally at the Live at Heart festival in Örebro, Sweden.
Creating a simmering synergy of vibrant bouncing sound that crackles with electric energy, Bowmanville leaves listeners always hungry for more.
