The Ritz - 1920s Jazz Band

This Yorkshire jazz band comprises of trumpet/vocals, trombone, clarinet/sax, piano, double bass and drums and they perform songs from the ‘Golden Age’ of the 1920s and 30s.

The band can perform a ‘Roaring 20s’ set for dancing at a themed function; play toe-tapping tunes for garden parties and wedding drinks receptions or simply put smiles on faces by providing up-tempo background music at any sort of event.

Playing timeless songs by the likes of George and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, this fun jazzy outfit entertains all age groups with its mix of Broadway and Hollywood classics.

This quirky jazz band has performed for select audiences of 25 all the way up to huge crowds of thousands at race meetings and always puts on a great show, receiving favourable comments and glowing testimonials wherever it goes.

The band typically performs 3 x 40 or 2 x 60 minute sets within a 50 mile radius of Leeds and York but will travel nationwide. An add-on DJ service is also available.

The Ritz - 1920s Jazz Band Feedback

We would like to thank you and the band for making our silver wedding anniversary so special and such a memorable occasion for us. We had such a perfect evening and we are sure all our family and friends enjoyed themselves as much as we did. We would like to think if in the future we have another occasion to celebrate that they would be there!

Malcolm & Angela Stather, Expanse Hotel, Bridlington, (October, 2010)

We just wanted you to know that your jazz band were absolutely fantastic last night and made Karen's celebrations so special. Everyone we have seen today has said how good you were and how professional. It was an absolute pleasure to listen to such a talented group and you should all be so proud of the ability you hold. Everyone would recommend you all over the North East and that to me says it all. Good luck for the future.
