The Swing Saloon - Jazz Swing Band
This Jazz & Swing band caters for every occasion: parties, weddings, corporate events and performs locally, across the UK and abroad.
The band size is tailored to fit your individual event, so for background music, you can book the singer/pianist solo or as a duo, trio & quartet, whilst the dancing band varies from a 4-piece to a 7-piece band with a full brass section, depending on the size of your event.
This Jazz & Blues singer/pianist launched his solo career in 2011 with a debut album, a string of live Jazz residencies and a project tributing the music of Ray Charles.
In 2012 he headlined "The A-Trane" Jazz Club (Berlin), Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club (London) and he was a featured artist on Jazz FM's Discovery Show.
As a keyboard player/MD, he has already appeared at the North Sea Jazz Festival (The Hague), The Jazz Café (Camden) and Phoenix Festival as M.D. for Warner Bros recording artist Dana Bryant, as well as The Iridium Jazz Club (NYC), and several appearances at the Manchester, Wigan, Birmingham, Marsden and Albacete (Spain) Jazz Festivals.
His musical beginnings were rooted in classical music, having been selected as a child for a place at the Royal Northern College of Music Junior School where he studied piano and trumpet for 11 years. At 18, he "rebelled" against the expected musical career by choosing one in medicine, qualifying as a doctor from the Middlesex Hospital Medical School, London, and later going on to complete postgraduate training as a hospital psychiatrist in Manchester.
In 1995, he left medicine to pursue a full time career in music; initially as a trumpeter, then later as a pianist/keyboard player and bandleader. He was offered several high level weekly/monthly jazz residencies at various venues, including both of Manchester's two premier jazz clubs (The Cinnamon Club, Matt & Phreds).View similar acts:
