"Fiddle Bop, on the Khaos stage, transform gypsy jazz stylings into a welcome hamper of swing: a great warmup."

A writeup in a blog: Le QuecumBar Battersea Square - FiddleBop gig (August 2014) by Lexie Carducci

"Tonight we had the pleasure of being entertained by Fiddlebop - a four piece jazz band with a gypsy swing. Playing a selection of well known jazz classics with a hint of original numbers thrown in to mix it up a bit. The beautiful blended sound of violin, guitars, vocals and double bass made for a calm dining listening and for dessert these guys made sure to bring some swing which had many customers dancing off their dinner! Not only were the band musically talented but had a sense of humour and charm too, each song was introduced with a little anecdote of fact and fun!"
