Ella and the Blisters are a recently formed original band led by singer/song-writer Gabs Romano.
They feature a collection of talented feral musicians playing accordion, drums, bass, guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele and percussion.
Active for a little over a year, they’ve been gigging consistently and in late January 2015 they digitally released their debut album, entirely composed of original material.
So far highlights include dazzling performances at mainstay London roots music venues such as the Bedford Arms, the Jamboree, the Troubadour and Chats Palace.
They also regularly perform at the Gladstone Arms, who promoted the band with these words: “Led by former Obscuritones singer Gabs Romano, Ella and the Blisters are fast emerging as one of the most exciting new bands on the thriving London roots scene. Fusing gypsy jazz, rockabilly and swinging’ country into a fantastically catchy whole, the band combine fiddle, accordion. guitar, bass, drums, ukulele and percussion to make for a wonderfully joyous roots stew. A great Saturday night band, guaranteed to warm your heart and move your feet!”
