Finding the right act for your particular establishment always feels like a tricky proposition, but it needn't be. From restaurants to hotels, we have been providing entertainment in these venues for over twenty years, counting The Ritz and The Connaught amongst some of our most valued clients. As such, we are always on the lookout for great new acts to provide for residencies, some of whom we are featuring below.
A unique jazz ensemble, Swing Out have established themselves as one of London’s top vintage swing bands. Harking back to the bluesy tones of Billie Holiday and the playfulness of Ella Fitzgerald, the band have a fondness for all things ‘30s and ‘40s and are available to book as a three piece or big band.
New Cross Hot Club
Stunningly talented musicians who play 1920’s 'hot club' jazz in charming, foot tapping style, New Cross Hot Club vary in size from a dynamic duo right up to a stunning six-piece. With a wealth of experience and having played in some of the most prestigious venues in London and beyond the group is a versatile combination of session musicians. Accomplished, professional and smart – and as charming as they come.
One of the UK’s leading session harpists, Camilla is a wonderfully talented musician who has worked all over the country at many of the UK’s most prestigious venues, including The V&A and Kensington Palace. She has also worked on TV and with a number of talented musicians including Jay-Z, Kanye West and Andrea Bocelli.
Ryan and Johnny
Ryan & Johnny began collaborating in 2014, creating an eclectic repertoire of acoustic covers of both popular and lesser known songs from various artists including Paolo Nutini, Randy Newman, Bruce Springsteen, Ray Charles and many others. They’ve performed at a number of Hilton hotels and jazz clubs and can even utilise a cajon in their performance if required.
Atlantic Soul Orchestra
Playing the very best of Stax and Atlantic soul music from the 1960s, Atlantic Soul Orchestra are one of the UK’s top soul bands. The calibre of those involved in the group is second to none; vocalist sang with Take That on their 2011 ‘Circus’ tour, whilst Lloyd sold 5 million records as part of gospel vocal group, The Wades. With other members having toured or recorded with Amy Winehouse to Elton John, soul bands don’t get better than this.
This is just a small selection of acts that we believe to be suitable for residencies, so if you're looking to make use of your performance space to attract more clientele, then do get in touch!
