An explosive musical pairing, The Smokin’ Romas combine technical complexity with hip rhythms and swinging melodies. They’re the perfect for receptions, cocktails, summer garden parties and anywhere where non-intrusive background music of the highest standard is a must.

It's unlike anything I've seen before. It's Rock n Roll and it's Gypsy Jazz but not as we know it, an acoustic explosion! Rupert, Private event

The duo are regularly joined by the Stephane Grappelli-influenced violin prodigy Ben and/or a double bass, to add depth and extra rhythm to the sound. A guitar & violin duo combination is also available.

Energetic, soulful and jovial, the Smokin' Romas combine outstanding musicianship with good humour, charm and professionalism.

“Just a quick note to say that we thought the Smokin' Romas were just that....Smokin! They were the perfect accompaniment to our wedding and we wish we had hired them for longer. Everything went so smoothly. Thank you!”

“Those guys were just incredible on Sunday. The audience was loving them and their style was so integral to the whole ambience of a very successful event for us!! Thank you so much!! They were beyond perfection.”

“It's unlike anything I've seen before. It's Rock n Roll and it's Gypsy Jazz but not as we know it, an acoustic explosion!”

“We booked The Smokin' Romas and Downtown Underground for our wedding. Both acts were very professional and did exactly as asked. The quality of the musicianship was second to none. Would definitely recommend both acts as a fabulous addition to your wedding day!”

10

“Smokin Romas were just what we were looking for, they were very professional as well as being flexible enough to make our wedding day even more special by playing outside in the bandstand. We received many comments throughout the day about how perfect the performance was. They were outstanding and we couldn't have asked for nicer people to be involved in our wedding.”

10

“The Smokin’ Romas were absolutely fantastic last night — lots of compliments from our guests. They were a big part of creating a fun, upbeat atmosphere at the event… and they seemed like really nice guys, too. Please pass on our thanks. And I have already had a couple of people ask me about them.”

10

“The Smokin' Romas created a great atmosphere for our wedding. Our event was held in a restaurant/pub so space was limited but they added real magic to the night. Background music as the guests arrived was perfectly pitched and then more upbeat after diner. There were lots of complimentary comments from our guests with the highlight being their rendition of "May You Never" by John Martyn. This was requested as our first dance (which they learn't within a week!) and I was blown away with this, especially the fiddle playing! Truly excellent!!!!”

10

“The Smokin' Romas are highly competent guitarists. The lead was charming and couldn't do enough to ensure that they did what we wanted. Their playing was highly skilled and they played all 6 requests we had made!”

10

“We loved The Smokin' Romas. They played at the afternoon reception of our wedding and got the room buzzing. They're really talented musicians and everyone loved their style of music. They played a great selection of songs and really got the party off to a fantastic start.”

10

“They were utterly fantastic, and professional throughout. The repertoire was brilliant and varied, and their musicianship left the guests utterly stunned. Stuart's violin playing especially was so jaw dropping good everyone was talking about it well after they had finished their set. I can safely say they are the best wedding band I have ever seen and were the perfect accompaniment to a fantastic afternoon! Please pass on our thanks to the band and as one of the guests has expressed an interest in booking them for another event I shall look forward to seeing them again hopefully.”
