Almaz are a unique sounding duo who perform a healthy blend of jazz, blues and swing. Be it standards, New Orleans, hot jazz or blues straight out of a prohibition era whorehouse.
Their love, feel and dynamic approach to the music they play offers a fresh feel to music that should sound old fashioned. Joanne & Barny are both seasoned musicians. Having paid their dues doing thousands of gigs with various line-ups all over the UK and Europe.
Joanne is an accomplished songwriter and band leader with a voice that turns heads in the noisiest of rooms, backed by Barny’s dynamic guitar style this duo are a must for music lovers worldwide.
The duo continue to explore their approach to their new genre and are busy crafting original music to bring to you.
Almaz have now played twice at the coachman in Hartford and have been fantastic both times, both staff and customers have praised there performances and we look forward to seeing you again. Nathan Taylor
We booked Almaz for a Charity event held at The Virgin Money Lounge in Manchester. They were extremely professional, arriving on time to set up and tune up. Their set created the perfect atmosphere for the day. They are both exceptionally talented and do a lovely repertoire of both originals and covers. I couldn't rate them any higher or I would have. Thanks again for all your support! Taise Wilson
