Verified profile

JW and the Lizards are one of the UK’s most in-demand Jazz, Soul, Funk and Pop Function Band. Guaranteed to turn any event into a real party. The band is of the highest standard & features 5 superb and talented young professional musicians in London. All the band members are world class musicians, including Amy Winehouse's side man and guitarist: Robin Banerjee and acclaimed singer Juan Whist, with a unique voice and a distinctive style, he has performed at many jazz and soul festivals all across Europe. His growing high media exposure in Spain due to his recent participation as a contestant on the internationally known TV show The Voice has led him to sell out theatres and venues all over the country. JW and the Lizards pride themselves on creating the perfect atmosphere for every individual occasion. With a repertoire in excess of 100 songs, across most genres, for all ages, ranging from the great classic soul, to current pop/rock/blues, R&B and Jazz, we guarantee to have your guests up and dancing for what will be an unforgettable experience. The band understands that not everyone has thousands of pounds to spend in an event, so have different packages available to suit both large and small events. These may be customized to suit you and the requirements of your budget. The band provides recorded music during their short breaks between sets to keep the guests entertained and the party going. We have a long client's list, references and our equipment is PAT tested, reliable and well maintained, and of course we do have PLI, different P.A sizes and all necessary equipment lights, etc.

Song list

A change is gonna come
A day in the day of a fool
Ain’t no mountain high enough
Ain’t no sunshine
Ain’t nobody
All I ask
All of me
Alright, OK
At Last
Autumn leaves
Beyond the sea
Billie Jean
Blame it on the boogie
Blue skies
Call me irresponsible
Can’t help it
Change the world
Cheek to cheek
Come fly with me
Cry me a river
Devil may care
Dream a little dream of me
Feeling good
Fly me to the moon
For once in my life
Georgia on my mind
Get lucky
Hallelujah I love her so
Heard it through the grapevine
Hello dolly
High and dry
I feel good
I get a kick out of you
I got a woman
I just called to say I love you
I want to be like you
I want you back
I wish
I’ve got the world on a string
If I ain’t got you
Isn’t she lovely
It don’t mean a thing
Just the two of us
Lady is a tramp
Lullaby of Birdland
Mack the knife
Me and Mrs Jones
Missing you
My Girl
My way
Let it snow
Nature boy
Over my shoulder
Santa Claus is coming to town
Shape of my heart
Signed, sealed, delivered
Sitting on the dock of the bay
Sr Duke
The Christmas song
These are the days
They can’t take that away from me
What a difference a day made
What a wonderful world
You and me are gone
On Broadway
UpTown Funck
You are the sunshine of my heart

Very good band, thank you. Great music. Also very understanding that with our dinner running slightly late & the sunny day meaning people were outside rather than in then the audience was both late and thinner than expected! We very much enjoyed the music and thank you to the band for making the trip and contributing to our day.

Working with JW and the Lizards was a great experience. Jose who I communicated with was very enthusiastic about our small event and extremely helpful. He even went as far to help us obtain a Saxophone player at short notice for our event. Musically the band was fantastic. They interpreted what I wanted exactly and read the crowd. I will 100% book them again for another event and I have also forwarded their details to other departments within our company for future events. Thank you Jose and the team. It was exceptional.

Thank you for providing us and the many guests attending our recent 60th Birthday Celebration, with such a wonderfully varied programme of both instrumental and vocal Jazz and popular music. Everybody enjoyed your group's playing, including the many professional musicians among our guests. The charismatic energy of the ensemble, really added to the celebratory atmosphere. We will unhesitatingly recommend you to anyone who needs similar musical entertainment." Susan and Richard Mattick

We have been using JW and The Lizards for two years now, from regular live music nights, to functions, to corporate events, and very recently Christmas parties. The music and services has been excellent, looking forward to organizing more events with more spectacular live music"
