Acoustic Roots Musicians

Multi-instrumental Acoustic Roots Duo

About Us

Acoustic roots duo Mambo Jambo might just be the biggest acoustic duo you’ll ever see; a truly unique two-piece, performing their lively, joyous mash up of sounds from roots, world, folk and jazz, along with their own compositions.

With Frankie on sax, vocals, clarinet, flute, guitar and percussion and Pete on guitar, vocal, ukulele, tres (traditional Cuban guitar), banjo, accordion and suitcase! Pete and Frankie have been gathering admirers at shows and festivals the length and breadth of the country. A fabulous musical treat is in store wherever they roll up, their tour bus packed to the brim!
