This quirky, charming and cheerful Gatsby themed party band is perfect for your 1920's themed party, wedding or event. Their style of jazz music means there is something for all your guests - from young to old, and from the most reluctant dancer to the one who's always first on the dance floor.

The Gatsby themed party band can also provide music for other parts of your special day. The band members are equally at home performing as duos trios or quartets to play background music during your wedding ceremony, drinks reception or during dinner.  

You can have 1920‘s and 1930‘s music all night or they can vary the program to suit your tastes and your guest as they are also able to include the music of the 40’s, 50’s and more to vary the music, keep people entertained and on the dance floor.

Enjoy this visit to an era of wonderful nonsense, quirky original music and cheerful entertainment. Let's misbehave!

Love them or laugh at them, you'll have to dance to them! Their affectionate 1920's pastiche delights and delects its way through an era of prohibition, speakeasies and mob violence, when the jitterbug was scandalous, flappers bobbed their hair and raised their skirts and a damn good time was to be had by the reckless and young at heart.

Based in both Manchester and London this band travel nationwide for their shows!

Claude Wallon, The Sanctuary Bar, Didsbury

I just wanted to thank you and your band for your excellent performance at the ICMIF reception last month. The client was absolutely thrilled, she said the band were such good fun! I look forward to the opportunity of working with you again.

... it was an absolutely wonderful wedding, made even more special by the superb music. You guys are really something special, and it was a genuine pleasure to be able to listen to you!

We booked the band for our wedding in Shropshire, and they were excellent. Everyone said how much they enjoyed the music, and how good it was. The dance floor was full with guests of all ages for almost the entire time they were on (pretty rare at a wedding) and even when people needed a breather, the music was perfect to sit and listen to. They set up and played a few songs while everyone was leaving the evening meal, then announced our first dance (Tea For Two), then played about a 40 minute set, followed by a quick break then another two sets of similar length. They also allowed us to plug an MP3 player of our own music into their speaker system for the breaks and then until the end of the evening – which was very useful as it meant we didn't need to hire a separate disco. All in all they were excellent and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them, 10 out of 10.

Everything was perfect, from the professional set-up and image to the efforts you made to ensure the party went with a swing, blending the 1920s into more modern swing. Most importantly of course, was the quality of your music - you performed the songs with talent, pizzazz, style and showmanship. And you don't need to take our words for that; all of our guests - even the ones difficult to impress (my Dad) - have told us how much they enjoyed your performance; it really was the highlight of a fantastic event. I'd recommend you, without reservation, to anyone looking to book a band of hugely talented musicians who can put on a real show that evokes the class and style of a previous era. We couldn't have wished for a more talented, or professional, band to round off our day.

I just wanted to let you know that the band was a real hit at our wedding! Every one loved them; young and old. I think they really made the day. They were lovely guys too.

, Wedding

It was an absolute pleasure to see you and the band once again, I really enjoyed your performance. You are not just an incredibly talented group of musicians but you work together and with the audience to deliver something that is worlds apart from your average function band. We’ve had loads of favourable comments from people who enjoyed the night.

, Corporate Function

Peter and I would like to say a huge 'Thank you' to you and the other members of the band for providing some fabulous entertainment at our wedding on Tuesday. We were thrilled with the quality of the music, and also the flexibility you showed throughout the evening to fit in with us running late, our friends providing an impromptu performance for us, and also working with the Charleston dancers. We thoroughly enjoyed your performance and would most definitely hire you again! Our guests were also highly impressed with you and several asked for your details, so you never know, there may be future gigs for you.

, Wedding, Somerset

They were simply brilliant. They were very versatile and although they played all the 1920's classics they also played a great mix of music during the evening, keeping everyone on the dance floor until midnight. Before the event they sent me a recording of our wedding dance to practice with and communications all the way through were excellent. I would certainly recommend them.
