Soft Shoe Strutters - Jazz Band

Having toured the UK and abroad playing at clubs and festivals with many great bands, this band leader decided to use his experience to put together the London Jazz Band.

From the outset the philosophy was that good music should be combined with good entertainment: the musicians in the band should enjoy working together to make the many old tunes they play sound fresh and new. The band’s repertoire is drawn largely from the small group jazz of the 20’s and 30’s with a few other interesting numbers from other eras thrown in to spice things up.

This London Jazz Band have been building a reputation as a band that is not only a lot of fun to listen to but also great to dance to, bringing joy to clubs and festivals as far afield as Cornwall and Cumbria although most often seen in and around London.

Soft Shoe Strutters - Jazz Band Feedback

The trio of banjo, clarinet and trombone were everything we hoped for and absolutely brilliant. They were punctual, played beautifully and were lovely to deal with, both on the day and communicating beforehand. They played all my dad’s favourite songs to such a high standard - pitching their act perfectly for the occasion. Fantastic! Thank you Graham and the guys!

Kaz, Brighton & Hove, Concert (February 2024)

What a fantastic group. We had a very diverse range of ages at our outdoor, BBQ on a really hot sunny day. They arrived with plenty of time to spare. From the moment they started, to the last number they had everyone captivated. Everyone toe tapping, some dancing, and the whole vibe was joyous. Everyone commented on how good they were and it being the perfect act for the day. They are lovely talented musicians, and would recommend them to anyone. (Gave 5 stars but they deserve more)

Rachel, Maidstone Invicta Rowing Club, Party (August 2022)

They really could not have been better. I would recommend them to anyone and give them a 5* Plus.


They were so upbeat, everyone loved the music and Graham and the band bent over backwards to make it a special night for us all.


I wanted to say a big thank you for connecting me to Soft Shoe Strutters. They did such a great job playing at our wedding on the 20th June. Truly OUTSTANDING


I could not have done it without their fantastic enthusiasm and calm performance – what an amazing and lovely group of performers


They where SO SO fantastic the other night – what stars and true professionals


Just the two of us again now, as our Canadian family flew off yesterday, but we can look back on a wedding celebration that exceeded all our (high) expectations – not least in the superb jazz your band and special guests provided. I really am so grateful to you for giving us exactly what we had wanted for the occasion, in presentation, in the programme selection, and in the brilliant jazz you played. We had many, many favourable comments, including from guests who had gone outside for some of the time to talk in the sunshine, but who could hear and appreciate all the music from the patio. It was altogether a gloriously memorable day.

Ray, Wedding

Thank you too for a fabulous evening! It really wouldn't have been the same without you guys - everyone was blown away by your music!

Khin and Jonathan , Wedding

THANK YOU for your wonderful playing! You and the band were absolutely perfect - exactly what Mary and I had envisioned, and your playing and the music you performed was just great. Thank you all very much indeed for entering into the spirit of it all, and I'm really glad you enjoyed it. I know that Mary was really thrilled by the whole thing. Hope to work with you again soon at some point and thanks again,

Georgina, Birthday Party

We were so pleased and impressed with the band. Thank you for playing so brilliantly and for your relaxed and accommodating attitude. You made our day very special especially playing the requested songs so well. I know my Dad, Sue and Becks really enjoyed singing with the band and you made it so easy for them. Particularly enjoyed our first dance!

Steph, John and Lilibet,

Many thanks to you and your colleagues for the superb performance at my party yesterday. It could not have been done better. Thank you.

Richard Collins, Birthday party, Pall Mall

You guys have been great! Definitely been a hit…

Josh Finesilver, Events Producer, Hampton Court Festival

Just a very quick note to thank you for the absolutely fabulous music played at our wedding, the day could not have been more perfect and you guys played a major part of that brilliant atmosphere.
