The Amplified Acoustic Band is a rootsy new band with blues, folk and soul influences and a sound as unique as their line-up. There is quite simply no other band like them in the Czech Republic. Based in Prague, they are fronted by acclaimed English songwriter, singer and outstanding guitar player Jamie Marshall, who is joined by three very experienced and exceptional musicians, all well known on the Czech live music and studio scenes.
Delivering an eclectic mix of Jamie original songs and their signature arrangements of a broad range of covers, the band distinctive sound comes not just from the voices of their two lead singers: Jamie himself and Svatka Hlávková Štepánková (who also plays double bass), but also from their all acoustic instrumentation. Patch them into a PA system and they can rock the house too .. just like they do at festivals and clubs all over the country.
The Band have regular club gigs and open-air concerts within the Czech Republic and abroad (London, Dresden etc.) and have recently , released their debut studio CD "Now.Here.This.". Comprised of 13 tracks the music is a mix of original material and some carefully chosen covers. The Amplified Acoustic Band are a one-off. Charismatic, individual, musically divergent and distinguished by their world class vocals and instrumental excellence, they have an unparalleled ability to plug right into an audience and lead them on a magical musical journey.
