Jose Lamon I heard them at a jazz night a couple of months back, they are very engaging band and the audience responded well. I highly recommend them.

You will love Boulevardier. Full big band sound with amazing soloists. Depth created by brass section topped off by powerful vocals with great range and impact. All brought together with Mattie’s inclusive style. Book them soon . They will be busy.
