About The Red Fez Orchestra

Vintage-themed jazz band
Bournemouth
Public liability insurance of £10 million
11 piece Dance Band that plays vintage Jazz from 1920s - 1930s. Think Great Gatsby, Charleston, Black Bottom Stomp, Hot Jazz!

Formed in 2013, The Red Fez Orchestra is quickly becoming one of the best loved Dance Bands in the UK. The 11 piece band features the talents of some of the UK’s finest musicians, specialising in 20′s, 30′s music. They all come together to create a great-sounding, Fez wearing, Macassar oil hair-slicked Dance Band! Come along to one of our soirees and dance the Black Bottom Stomp, The Charleston, The Sand Dance or simply Foxtrot the night away; period attire is encouraged but not compulsory. For those not of the energetic persuasion, the band will put on a great show for you to sit and enjoy a drink whilst tapping your toes. Under the musical direction of James Rawlinson and with the dulcet tones of Howard Mitchell’s voice and the sultry songstress Kate Skellern it really is The Cat’s Pyjamas!

This is just a quick email to express my thanks for your hard work at the Charity Ball over the weekend. The entire Red Fez Orchestra were amazing, you fitted the theme perfectly, your music got people dancing all night and we appreciated your staying on in order to finish the set as we were running late.
