"A Concert in Doctors' Aprons"

Koncert w Fartuchach

A concert in Doctor’s aprons

Koncert w fartuchach

I would describe AMBULANZA music as entertaining, funk driven music, which can prove to be irresistible.
The band performed last Thursday night at The Brama Jazz Café.
AMBULANZA’s music proves to be better live than on CD and is dance alluring. Technically the band is perfect and what is even better, the band does this in captivating style. However good musicianship alone is not enough to make a band stand out, there needs to be something else, some inner energy which AMBULANZA seemed to leash out every minute.
Paramedical Funk, which is what they call their music is an interesting mix of classic funk echoing James Brown, with electronic sounds, some rapping vocals, and even a ska song. Thanks to this combination of styles, there was not even one sparkles moment. Even the people who stuck to their tables could not help tapping to the rhythm.

The vocalist easily stole the show. Dr Mario comes from Malta. He did not stop singing, he bounced throughout the entire pub and tried to get the people going. His singing was not boring as with each song his singing style changed, offering a very intelligent combination of styles and interesting interpretations.

The doctors even concentrated on their image. The crew performed wearing doctors’ aprons. Dr Mario himself was deposited at the club by a wailing ambulance.
