About Us

Mumbo-Jumbo takes three of the Midlands most experienced gigging musicians – Oliver Carpenter, Chris Lomas and Phil Bond – throws them together in a broadly acoustic format and lets them deliver what they are best at – live music performance.

They play around 85% of their own music, and the writing is so good that they were nominated in the British Blues Awards in the Best Original Song category for their track ‘Nice Work’ – maybe the new album ‘Sonic Gumbo’ will have another suitably recognised gem.

Their 2017 festival schedule included Ealing Blues, Upton Blues, Upton Folk, Scarborough Blues, Keswick Jazz & Blues, Nantwich Jazz & Blues, Three Choirs, Jinney Ring Folk and Upton Jazz showing the breadth of their accessibility to a range of audiences. Both blues and folk festivals and clubs have discovered Mumbo-Jumbo too!
