Highly entertaining - vast repertoire of 1940s - 50s Swing/Jive, Rhythm & Blues, Great American Songbook, Rat Pack, etc. Dancers love 'em!
One Jump Ahead always attract dancers to get up and strut their stuff with their huge repertoire of 1940s - 50s Swing/Jive and Rhythm & Blues, plus Great American Songbook, Rat Pack, 1960s Soul, Rock'n'Roll and carefully selected vintage Pop plus a large number of their own critically acclaimed songs. Leader, singer, saxophonist and songwriter Kit Packham is accompanied by piano, guitar, bass, drums, trumpet and another saxophone. The swinging tempos, sizzling sax solos and humour of jump/jive star Louis Jordan have been the band's biggest influence and have inspired Kit to compose his own, critically acclaimed material. At private functions the band usually concentrate on well-known “covers”, but at clubs, festivals and dances audiences can expect more original compositions - or some of Kit's wry updated lyrics to jazz standards.
