With over 20 years experience, Steamchicken are a favourite with dancers and callers alike and will keep you entertained both on and off the dancefloor.

The 'Jazz Roots' Live Show

Steamchicken's Jazz Roots live show traces a redefined path through music history; chasing blues, soul, motown and folk through the ages without ever quite catching up. Swinging from the noisy jubilation of a full 8 piece band, to the captivating beauty of stripped back vocals, this memorable stage show transforms a tradition, showing roots music both the respect and celebration it deserves.
