Salt Peanuts are a jazz duo, performing a mix of jazz classics and popular hits from 1920s onwards. A wonderful performance that pairs guitar and vocals, with the optional addition of double bass on request.

The duo cleverly combines the intricate talent of jazz with the catchy nature of pop music to add a cheerful warmth to any social occasion.

 Drawing inspiration from the golden era of jazz, Salt Peanuts transport you to another time to create a truly enchanting and unforgettable atmosphere.

From careful adaptations of timeless standards, to the colourful reworkings of modern hits, they offer an experience to which every generation can relate and enjoy.

Salt Peanuts are two of the most charismatic performers I've had the pleasure of booking. Not only do they have fantastic performance chemistry, they serenade the audience through the decades effortlessly with lilting vocal melodies and soulful instrumentals. Kitty, Idle Hands’ venue in Brighton, January 2018 - May 2018

A colourful and unique vocal performance with allusion to the likes of Ella Fitzgerald and Marilyn Monroe, accompanied by beautiful and intricate guitar arrangements, together they display a chemistry and a professionalism that is characteristic of this duet’s true love of their craft and delight in sharing it with their audience.

Their repertoire consists not only of the old time greats such as Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller and Ella Fitzgerald but also modern day ear-worms from the likes of Amy Winehouse, Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Rhianna and more.

Also available as a trio on enquiry, Salt Peanuts is a perfect toe tapping addition to any event or evening wishing to convey the class of the Jazz era with a sprinkle of 21st century charm.
