For this week’s post we are taking a look at some feel good bands! These are all high energy, fast paced ensembles, based around the globe. Hopefully they will get you in the mood to have a fantastic week and stay positive.
Up first is Postmodern Jukebox, they are an incredibly versatile band who cover a wide range of songs. They don’t have a set genre or set band – in some of the examples below there is even tap dancing. Enjoy!

Up next is Doreen Ketchens with her New Orleans jazz band. The videos I have uploaded are a lot less polished than the previous artist, but that is the beauty of this band – it feels like you’re actually there. Enjoy their swinging cover of When The Saints Go Marching In, then relax a little with Just A Closer Walk With Thee.

Finally, it is the New York streetband Lucky Chops/Too Many Zooz. They have the highest energy levels of any band on this list and are sure to get your head bobbing along. Start off with their famous cover of I Feel Good, in a New York subway station. Then move to their cover of Stand By Me, for a somewhat ‘relaxed finish.’
