The Jumping Tommys are a folk, bluegrass/Americana band from London. They have played at top venues around the UK, with highlights including the Royal Festival Hall and the Oval Space in London. They're a great choice for corporate events too, and previous clients include Jim Beam, Teroforma and Creative & Cultural Skills.

They're a very talented 4-piece band and play a great mix of music! Jonathan, Wedding, Surrey

The band are equally at home playing jigs, reels, and lively numbers for dancing, or ballads and blues for background music at drinks receptions and afternoon events. Their core line-up is a 4-piece, but they can add a fiddle player for a richer, more melodic sound.

The Jumping Tommys also offer additional jazz sets for mellow background jazz earlier in the day, as well as a DJ service to get the party started later on.
