Lady & Gents is the first Ska – Jazz band in Bulgaria.
It was established in 2015 by Vladi Mitin (trumpet) and Alexander Borisov (trombone).
The band is a septet: vocal, keyboard, guitar, bass guitar, trumpet, trombone and drums.
Their music is a mixture of traditional music combined with modern tendencies. It mixes the melodic base of the jazz music and improvisation with the rhythmic and harmonic nuances of early Jamaican music. The reggae beats carry summery coastal mood and the SKA tracks by legends as The Specials, Toots & The Maytals, The Skatalites and others, will bring guaranteed enjoyment.
The musicians of the band Lady & Gents have a vast musical experience with other bands like Wickeda, Svetlio & The Legends, Hipodil, Plastic Bo, Mind Trips, Kozza Mostra, Root Souljah, NoMoreManyMore, KGB, MVR, Lock Maruhu and others.
Lady & Gents frequently play gigs at clubs in Sofia and various festival scenes.
In 2019 they were supporting the Ska idols Mark Foggo’s Skasters.
