The Bad Mouse Orchestra is a German ukulele and guitar trio playing swing and jazz tunes from the 1920’s to 40’s. Their repertoire covers not only well known standards but also unknown and forgotten numbers that have rarely been heard in almost a hundred years. These tunes they discover when digging through old sheet music or gramophone records which we find in dusty boxes on flea markets, attics or thrift stores.
The Bad Mouse Orchestra is dedicated to bringing back the vibe of the roaring 20’s, daring 30’s and wicked 40’s. Not however in the extravagant manner of old broadway shows but in a much more intimate way, like three friends getting together at the end of the day to play their favourite gramophone records right there in their living room.
"The Bad Mouse Orchestra are top people and top musicians with an authentic passion for swing and a fantastic stage presence."
- Tim Smithies, Dead Mans Uke
