Tuppenny Bunters

Bio

The act known as Tuppenny Bunters started life as half of noughties Southend beat scene regulars The Virgo Intacta. Having gone about as far as they were gonna go, a five year odyssey of guerilla gigs, coach trips, radio sessions and a support tour with The White Stripes, the band finally ran out of steam as the train pulled into The Railway Hotel, a 140 year old folly that Dave had seen fit to purchase because his Top Hat had landed on it. Once the dust had settled, Dave Dulake and Fi Jacobs got their mojo back, bought a Hohner Pianet, got married and put together a couple of hours of tunes, as varied and eclectic an act as a night at a Victorian music hall. For here we have two musicians, wreaking sonic lullabies out of some real life vintage instruments, swapping vocals and from drums to piano at the flick of a tailored cuff; turning on a sixpence from too-fast jazz standards to beat ballads to deftly written originals to musical theatre classics to crowd-pleasers to cult gems.
