When we're not playing at private parties you can find us at venues across London including The Crypt in Trafalgar Square, The Water Rats, The Dublin Castle and many more. Our standard setup features 18 of London's finest jazz instrumentalists, along with our singer, Talia Cohen. Talia has played at the likes of Ronnie Scott’s, Scala, the Hippodrome Casino and has worked with an array of musicians and producers recently including Turner Prize nominee James Richards.

I first saw DSBB at the Old Queen's Head last year. They were amazing! Not a hip was left unshook. We danced all evening and I have made a point to see them at every opportunity since.

Great night at The Water Rats – the band was amazing and lots of fun; so full of energy, the audience couldn't wait to get up and dance. Playing a good mix of classics and well known songs, as well as contemporary sounds, Duke Street is the must see band for anyone who appreciates good jazz. Great cover of Snarky Puppy by the way guys.
