About Tobie Medland Ensemble

A band at the forefront of the UK Gypsy Jazz circuit.

Hey, I'm a young violinist from London. I'm recognized as one of the top Jazz violin players in the UK. This is the profile for my band! After a high level training in Classical from the Royal College of Music and the University of Leeds, I followed a rather unconventional path in Jazz. This jazz training was gained on the road, by traveling the North of England busking. Since learning the craft I have frequented high profile venues across the country. These include Birmingham Symphony Hall, St. John's Smith Square and Leeds Town Hall. I have also toured Europe with notable gigs at leading Sarajevo jazz club 'Jazzbina' and the Mostar Gipsy Festival. These days I am the director of the big London Gypsy Jazz festival, as well as a record label. I also perform as my job - I love it so much...can't imagine doing anything else! :D I'm really versatile, and can bring a variety of styles to your event. My large network of musician friends, and eclectic musical background, means that I can pull together a top notch band in many styles. These include: Gypsy Jazz - Duo, Trio, Quartet or full Hot Club Quintette (a la Django Reinhardt!) American Jazz/Bebop/Swing - Quartet with Guitar/keyboard, Double Bass and Drum Kit. Trio with Double Bass and Guitar. Classical Ensemble - Duo (myself and piano/guitar accompanist), Trio, String Quartet. Solo - With or without backing tracks. My repertoire ranges from baroque era classical (Bach, Vivaldi...), modern classical (Ravel, Prokofiev...) to contemporary Jazz, Funk and Blues! As a member of the LGBTQ+ community I am an excellent choice for events which require an open minded band, who are comfortable entertaining people from all walks of life! If you have any song requests, just ask! I'm always happy to learn new songs, and entertain people with their favorite music! :)

Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes, we have a large network of top notch musicians. If, for example, you'd like us to invite an accordion player, another guitarist, a cellist etc, we are more than happy to oblige! :)

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.

How much time do you need to set up?

Half an hour is usually plenty.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Absolutely! Pick away, you're the boss :D

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Amplification is included in the quote.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We love learning new music, so please don't hesitate to ask! Generally we will be able to learn anything, as long as you give us a couple of weeks advanced notice.
