These Exeter-based musicians have wide-ranging individual backgrounds in classical music, traditional jazz, rock, blues, country, ragtime and roots, all drawn together by the shared pleasure of playing gypsy jazz and hot swing.

Performing to acclaim at larger festivals such as Upton Jazz, Bude Jazz, jazz Jurassica, ‘Midsummer Dreams’ at Dartington Hall, ‘Respect’, ‘Acoustica’ and ‘Nourish’; for events like ‘Jazz on the Quay’ and Velo Vintage At the huge Cosy Club in Bristol for their New Year’s Eve festivities, and for three years running at The Royal Albert Hall’s ‘Verdi Italian Kitchen’ on Valentine’s Day.

They have built a reputation for their mix of ‘Hotclub’ favourites, jazz standards, soulful ballads and Latin swing mixed with the occasional unexpected film theme or classical score! Toe-tapping rhythms and virtuoso melody lines combine in a performance with all the verve and joy that makes this music so irresistible.

“We loved having you – absolutely brilliant performance!” Jazz Jurassica

“A great performance. We hope to have you to play again soon!” Tiverton Community Arts Theatre

“…this is a rare treat. This lot are magnificent.” Danny Gladstone, ‘The Glad’, London SE1.

Pandemic policies. This information will be updated as things change.

Update: April 2022

  • Face masks: In the Main Hall, on the ground floor, these are recommended at all times, but are optional. Anyone who sits upstairs in the balcony MUST wear a face mask – with NO exceptions (not even those who are exempt). This is to allow people who are clinically vulnerable to have a place to sit where seats are naturally separated, so: (a) to provide a place for people who want to be as distanced as possible from others, and with anyone nearby wearing a mask; (b) as virus particles when airborne are generally heavier than air, this helps to mitigate the risk of transmission from people sitting in the balcony to audience members below.
  • The windows and doors of the venue will be open, allowing fresh air to be constantly moving through. Although we have heating, this might mean that the ambient temperature is a little cooler than some might like, and audience members should dress accordingly.
  • Please, if you can, take a Lateral Flow test before coming to the Arts Centre, and if this is positive, don’t come. These tests aim to pick up anyone who is infectious at the moment of testing, so please take the test as late as possible on the same day before coming to the Arts Centre. If you test positive, a refund or transfer of your ticket to another event can be arranged, if you let us know before the start of the event, by emailing
