About this Event

The Puppini Sisters released their first album ‘Betcha Bottom Dollar’ in 2006, produced by the Oscar nominated Charest – the album was labelled the fastest selling jazz album of all time when it hit no. 1 in the UK Jazz Charts and subsequently went gold.They quickly became musical pioneers of the neo burlesque/swing scene in the early noughties and continue to this day as mainstays of the underground performance art scene.

Marcella Puppini, previously a graduate from Central St Martins College of Art working with Vivienne Westwood, had left her Fashion career to pursue her love of music, and having graduated from Trinity College Of Music, she felt inspired to start a close-harmony swing group (which she gave her name to) when she saw the French animation movie Belleville Rendez-Vous, with music composed by Benoit Charest.Puppini had been obsessed with harmony singing since she was a child (her mother used to play her The Swingle Singers to send her to sleep when she was a baby), and had fallen in love with Jazz and Swing legends Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong through her love of classic Hollywood movies.

Since then, the group have appeared on some of the world’s most prestigious stages, including Koko and The Shepherd’s Bush Empire and The O2 Arena (with Michael Bublè) in London, l’Olympia in Paris, The Great Hall of Conservatory in Moscow, The Roxy and The Greek in L.A. (both with Cyndi Lauper), B.B. King’s in New York, The Montreal Jazz Festival and Glastonbury Festival.

The Pasadena Roof Orchestra was founded nearly fifty years ago by John Arthy in 1969, and enjoys a busy concert schedule playing the finest music from the 1920s and 1930s.
