Barrelhouse Ballroom, Totnes
WE ARE THE BAND
Naomi is a fully qualified horn operator, and can deliver up to 14 Terrawatts of horn power on demand, in a safe and controlled manner. Rest assured, your audio needs are Naomi's number 1 priority.
Tom was identified early as a natural on guitar. After studying at some of the finest music colleges in the country he was trained by the Edge, before founding Malavita in 2006. He is. however, a social recluse.
Ian works hard at his craft, manufacturing his own saxaphone from a single, elegant ash sapling and several hundred old Tunnocks wrappers. When played, this unique device often stimulates involuntary latin spasms.
Al has extensive rock and jazz drumming experience having played with the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and Shania Twain. Malavita managed to hire Al by offering guaranteed Tunnocks at every gig.
Boo La La
The vocal powerhouse of the band is Boo la la, frontperson and chief lyric writer, as everything the rest of the band comes up with is riddled with smut.
Tim doesn't speak much English, but from what little Malavita can work out, he is a fourth generation latin-funk bassist from South Devon.
