The perfect band for Great Gatsby or 1920s themed parties and weddings. We specialise in the jazz-age of the 1920s and the swing music of the 1930's and take all the elegance, charm and humour of the era to make your experience as authentic as possible.

Overview

We combine swing classics with more modern songs but in a 1920s style such Lou Reeds ‘Walk On The Wild Side’ and George Michaels’ ‘Faith’.

We can teach your guests a simple dance routine (the Charleston) near the beginning of the night which is always a funny moment and gets people loosened up. After a bit of encouragement everyone always wants to try out their “Strictly” moves!

Consisting of the UK's finest musicians in this style, and with fantastic music and costumes to match, we give a real feel of an authentic 1920/30's evening.

We can offer a variety of sized lineups depending on your needs, prices shown are for the 8-piece band

The event was, quite literally, a roaring success - everything I wanted it to be and more! I've received so many emails from guests saying how much they enjoyed your music. As a fan of the era, I have to say you certainly looked and sounded the part!” — Andrew
Fantastic music and gorgeous chaps. Everyone has mentioned you and learning the charleston in their thank you letters as the highlight. It was a terrific night.” — Judith
You created a great atmosphere and had everyone dancing…the sight of Charlie’s dad doing the Charleston is one we won’t forget!” — Becca
