Thanks for making our 40th wedding anniversary party such a big success, the dance floor was never empty, with 7 to 70 year olds not wanting the night to finish! Linda & Dick, Anniversary Party, Newcastle

This amazing jazz and swing band are fronted by a fantastic male vocalist who has performed across the UK and abroad as both a solo, cabaret vocalist and as a band singer.

He's performed for companies and venues including Warner Leisure, Haven, Thomson Holidays, Saga Holidays, Gala, Shearings, Premier Inn, Radisson Hotels and more.

Also performing on live television and radio while touring in the beautiful island of Malta. Often compared to the likes of Michael Buble and Harry Connick Junior, he prides himself on delivering his high quality vocals with humour and energy.

If there’s someone to get you dancing all night long, it’s this guy!

As if that wasn't enough, the band behind him are a hand-picked bunch of in-demand musicians who've worked all over the UK and abroad, topped up with a talented female backing vocalist. (Or two, in the 10-piece big band!)

The Jump & Wail Big Band perform their own high-energy versions of a string of hits made famous by artists including Louis Prima, Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Louis Jordan, Bobby Darin, Tony Bennett, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Bill Hayley, Chuck Berry, Wilson Pickett, Jackie Wilson and many more!

As well as their lively evening show to get you on the dancefloor, the band can also offer background jazz music in the afternoon ideal for a drinks reception, and a DJ service to keep the music flowing between sets.

If you're booking them for December, they can also offer a special Christmas-themed show!
