Your performance went above and beyond our expectations and really brought a smile to so many passers by at the festival village and at the race course! Virgin Sport Hackney Half, London

Since 2007, the band have taken their vibrant show to prestigious events such as the Birmingham International Jazz Festival, the Chelsea Flower Show, and Keswick Jazz and Blues. They have graced the stage at London’s legendary Ronnie Scott’s, and entertained corporate clients such as Virgin Sport, Red Bull and Sky.

An experienced band of enthusiastic and professional musicians, they have bags of energy and spontaneity in their performances and since they don’t require power, they’re ideal for outdoor events, receptions and garden parties.
