The Hot Notes entertain all ages with their intoxicating mix of Great Gatsby and Roaring 20s classics from the golden era of swing. The frontman dresses in full top hat, white tie and tails to give you an authentic vintage show.

What can I say – Simply fantastic. Spot-on entertainment and your team's professionalism shone out on the day! Tom & Natalie Broughton, Wedding, Sun Pavilion, Harrogate

They offer enthralling, lively music for weddings, drinks receptions, garden parties, dinners, balls, race meetings, corporate hospitality and charity events. Some call it mad-cap nonsense, they prefer to call it organised mayhem!

They work extensively touring Haven Holiday Parks, as well as their regular residencies at York and Thirsk Racecourses. 



Efficient and professional, the band takes very little time and space to set up for gigs and can also provide a full PA system and lights for larger events. Add some toe-tapping be-bop to your event by choosing The Hot Notes!

John & Juliet, Wedding in Howsham, North Yorkshire, December 2017

“Thank you all so much for your amazing performance on Saturday evening, which was everything I could have hoped for! Your music was brilliant, got everyone up dancing and I can't tell you how many people told me afterwards how brilliant the 1920s band were! As soon as you played your first song I knew we'd struck gold! It couldn't have been more perfect given the whole Gatsby theme and everyone so dressed up, so thank you all so much. You may be interested to know that we raised an astonishing 7,000 on the night! With just 96 people in the room, amazing! I'll not hesitate to recommend you if anyone should ask me for a fabulous 20's Jazz Band!”

Susie, Anniversary Party in York, May 2016
