COOL FOR SCHOOL
THE VAMPIRES

Give your students the unforgettable taste of an intimate jazz club environment and inspire them in their music studies and practice with these engaging and interactive concerts and workshops.

Compared to the likes of Bob Marley, critically acclaimed band The Vampires take you on a journey of old and new jazz and everything in between. Featuring an exuberant blend of Reggae, romantic Peruvian, Cuban dance, exotic Balkan and funky Afro beats their sophisticated compositions and bold improvisation will entertain and introduce your group to musical fusions.

The Vampires will engage and excite students as they break down some of their compositions into components and discuss why they incorporate particular grooves.
