We play an average of 120 venues a year throughout the UK and Europe. Previous venues include Buckingham Palace, The Landsdowne Club, Royal Lancaster Hotel, The Landmark Hotel, The Ritz, and The Mayfair Hotel.

We are equally at home in smaller venues, from pubs and church halls to country estates, theatres and halls. We can also perform in marquees or even outdoors during the summer.

Some of the more well-known people that we’ve played for include the Bank of England, O2, Royal Ascot, the Natural History Museum, the Royal Marines and the Royal Navy.

But most of all, we’d like to play for you…

We can also help with a selection of jazz ensembles to provide background music at your event when guests arrive, during the wedding ceremony, during drinks or during your meal.
