Mundo Jazz

Mundo Jazz are a spoof World Music band whose mission is to teach us about peace, the environment, racial harmony and love. It’s unfortunate, then, that they know absolutely nothing… Ridiculously catchy songs, awful dancing, thunderously crass poetry and catastrophic onstage telephone conversations with the Whitehouse combine to create a beautifully subtle satire on the likes of Bono and Bob Geldof. Expect the unexpected with a musical accompaniment from Mundo Jazz. Worried about your carbon footprint? Don’t bother, you can buy one of theirs after the show…

Trevor Organ

Trevor Organ - Yorkshire man, cabaret artiste and the self styled 'Sultan of Spin' has been to Boom Boom once before and is surprised to be asked back. He is most well known for his spectacular plate-spinning act 'Trevor Organ's Cracking Crockery'. He also spins yarns about his dog, mum and showbiz family, all spiced through with some nifty plate manipulation and maybe Auntie Caroline's infamous ping-pong ball routine.

One Of Cabaret Boom Boom‘s old friends, we're taking Trevor to Wirksworth as he's not getting a summer holiday due to his bus pass being withdrawn.

Kate Fox

Kate Fox is a stand-up poet who has been on Radio 4 a lot but has vowels flatter than her chest and listens to Radio 2. Sort of like a cross between Pam Ayres and Sylvia Plath if they were both Northern.
