The Big City Jump Band are an exciting London band playing the best classic R&B, jump, and jazz of the 40s, 50s, and 60s. The band includes some of the best musicians the capital has to offer.

Their stompin' rhythms, infectious horns, and soulful male vocals will make you want to dance all night long with their authentic versions of the real, original dance music.

Since you played at my party we haven't stopped talking about you guys, we had so much fun and I'm still worn out from all the dancing! Sara, Birthday Party, Surrey

The band play a whole host of tunes that you already love, and some tunes that you don’t know yet, but as soon as you hear them you’ll wonder why they aren’t already staples of your own collection!

If you like the music of Ray Charles, Fats Domino, or Nina Simone you're in for a real treat!
