The Rhythm Kings - Jazz Swing Band

The band was formed in 1994 and since then has been in high demand for weddings, corporate entertainment and jazz festivals playing hits from the era of such greats as Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Glen Miller and many more. 

Understandably not every budget can stretch to the octet, so the band is available in smaller formats. Most combinations of the available instruments will work. One of the most popular smaller acts is a quartet of vocals, sax, guitar and double bass. In each different line up the musicians remain committed to the sound of the era, and will deliver a well-honed and polished performance, crafted by years of experience at home and on the road.

Truly a class act - their previous client list tells the story:

  • Credite Suisse
  • Lincoln's Inn
  • Grey's Inn
  • Royal Festival Hall
  • Olund Jazz Club
  • Exxon Mobil
  • The Labour Party
  • The Conservative Party
  • Army and Navy Club...
