With a sound located somewhere between the deep south and South Wales, Gumbo La La
play the rootsiest honky-tonk, zydeco and R&B in London. They like nothing better
than to play foot-stompin' tunes that you can dance the Texas polka to.
Gumbo La La regularly delight audiences of all ages with a variety of 1950s American
hits. With a flexible line-up, they sound great as a duo, trio or quartet; the regular
line up includes musicians who have worked alongside stars such as Van Morrison,
Bob Geldof and Rolf Harris. Bandleader Dai Price has provided entertainment for numerous
venues and private clients including The Oxo Tower Brasserie, The King's Head Theatre,
China White, The Barbican, Marco Pierre White's in Stamford Bridge, Eversheds Law
Firm and fashion designer Ted Baker.
David Price plays the guitar and sings. Previously, he has written, sung and twanged
for soul band Spengler and psychedelic cumbia outfit Los Chinches.
Bob Loveday plays fiddle and tin whistle. Bob played with the Penguin Cafe Orchestra
and has featured on albums by luminaries such as Van Morrison.

Dead Victorians and Balkan troubadours Kuma Lisa.
