Verified profile

The Jelly Roll Jazz Band is a lively and dynamic traditional (‘Dixieland’) jazz band, originally based in the North East of England but now working regularly across the country. They have a diverse repertoire, ranging from New Orleans standards like ‘Bourbon Street Parade’ through to Disney classics such as ‘The Bare Necessities’, via some less conventional tunes – anyone fancy a jazz version of ‘...Baby One More Time’? Whatever the occasion, the band are certain to bring smiles to faces and help the event go with a swing. They usually play as a trio, and can easily adapt their instrumentation depending on a client’s needs and the availability of the musicians. Furthermore, they are able to play completely acoustically, making them ideal for outdoor events. They perform at everything from wedding receptions to birthday parties to exhibition openings. Recent engagements have included playing for the Tour de Yorkshire, The Royal Bath & West Show and the ‘Monday Menu with Music’ at Scarborough Spa Complex.

Michael and the Jelly Roll Jazz band were fantastic for our DIY country wedding. They played two fabulous sets which really added to the atmosphere of the day. They were professional, prompt and completely hassle free - just what was required. They are a really talented group and we have had so many positive comments from guests about how great they were! Thoroughly recommended- and excellent value for money. Truly memorable.

A HUGE thank you to The Jelly Roll Jazz Band for contributing to what was a very special day for my sister’s wedding. Perfect music, great atmosphere, and to top it all off the sun shone all day! Thanks so much boys, you were a real hit, and I hope to be using your services again in the future!!

The wonderful Jelly Roll Jazz Band played at my husband’s 60th birthday party which took place in our garden on a fabulous Saturday afternoon. We set them up under the gazebo and they absolutely made the day. My husband was unaware there was going to be a band until the three young men appeared. We loved the diversity of the music they played; I bought one of their CDs afterwards which has been heard many times since in our garden. They played for 3 hours with 2 breaks and were well worth their fee. They are very gifted musicians, as well as being lovely young men, who made the party go with a swing and I would definitely book them for our next event as long as they play the Star Wars song for me again!
