About Aisha Khan & The Rajahs

Aisha Khan & The Rajahs are a seven piece band performing 1940's and 50's Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Swing, Jazz and Rock & Roll
Swing & Jive band
Public liability insurance of £1 million

Aisha Khan & The Rajahs was formed in Spring of 2017 with band members in both London and Barcelona, as we work quite a bit in Spain. The line up is Vocals, Piano, upright bass, guitar, drums and tenor and baritone sax. All of the band members are experienced and excellent musicians and we play a mix of music from the 1940's and 50's, including Jazz, Blues, Rhythm & Blues, Rock & Roll and Swing, with the odd Calypso or Mambo thrown in for good measure! Lead singer Aisha Khan has over 25 years of experience and sings with passion, style and substance. She also dresses up to the nines for every performance.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Aisha Khan and the Rajahs always can perform as anything from a 5-7 piece. At minimum, the line up will include Vocals, acoustic bass, drums, tenor sax and guitar. We can add baritone sax to this and also piano for the full sound.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know and we will do our best to accomodate any changes. Please give us as much notice as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Sorry, not at the moment, though it's something we are looking at for the future.

How much time do you need to set up?

Ideally we would like to set up between 1-1.5 hours before the guests/audience arrive.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Unfortunately not. the band needs to perform together for the unity of the sound and it is very difficult to roam with some of the larger instruments, say acoustic bass.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event, with a couple of tweaks if need be.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

PA and lighting is not included in our quotes. We can supply a PA but it would be at extra cost.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

The feedback we've often received is that people love the quality of the music and vocals and the authenticity of what we do. They also enjoy the atmosphere we create and the energy and presentation of the whole act. The original material that is part of our set is extremely popular, coupled with our ability to do excellent cover versions.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Most recently, we have done a two week tour of Spain over seven different cities, playing at venues like Peter Rock in Valencia and Gruta 77 in Madrid. We have also played at many London and UK venues and festivals.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We love all the great classic Jazz and Blues singers, especially wome like Bille Holliday, Sarah Vaughan, Ruth Brown and Lavern Baker. There are many more we adore!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

With this particular band, it would have to be headlining at the Screamin' festival in Calella, Spain.

"The Garibaldi Hotel in Northampton holds regular Saturday and Sunday matinee performances, showcasing roots music in all its forms, and last Sunday it was the turn of Aisha Khan and her Rajahs. As one of the organisers, I had been looking forward to Aisha playing the Gari for many months and I can tell you, she was well worth the wait! The four-piece Rajahs kicked off with their take on the instrumental Congo Mambo, leaving the audience in absolutely no doubt of their combined talent; upright bass and drums keeping a perfect rhythm, lead guitar and wailing sax. After that, Aisha took the stage and the crowd instantly warmed to her as she worked through the first set, a mix of original material, rare grooves and a few old favourites thrown in; Gangster of Love, Take a Chance on Me (Annisteen Allen!), Hound Dog and Mama, he treats your Daughter Mean! From rhythm'n'blues through calypso, mambo, blues and pure rock'n'roll! The second set saw the crowd even more involved, in fact I don't think I've ever seen so many people dancing at one of our matinee performances, and of course everything seemed to be over far too quickly. I spoke many people after the performance and I heard the same from everyone, what a fabulous afternoon and will the band be playing the Garibaldi again? It seems that there are now quite a few Aisha Khan fans in Northampton!"

Aisha Khan and the Rajah’s were fantastic at our 1950s event. They were lively, energetic and the crowd loved them!
