The Southside Jazz Band pride themselves on recreating the bold, blues-infused spirit of 1920s New Orleans jazz. Partner that with their infectious energy and enviable ability to win over a crowd and you have a recipe for a brilliantly entertaining evening.

Made up of some of London’s finest jazz musicians, they are comfortable roaming your event to add their unique, witty style to your guests' experience or performing their full show as a centrepiece to the evening.

With a brassy repertoire that draws from Armstrong and Fats Waller and nods to a few, select post-war classics, their superb musicianship and captivating energy will make your event a truly memorable occasion.

“Just a quick note to say thank you so much for Saturday!!!! You guys were the best!!! Everyone was loving the music - I am just sad I wasn’t there to hear more of you! I’m sorry if it was all a bit chaotic however much you plan things they still seem to go their own way. But we had the most fabulous day and you and the guys definitely contributed hugely to the happy, joyful atmosphere we hoped to create. Have a very merry Christmas and new year!!”
