Delightful people and they certainly add value to your event."

Roaming Drinks Reception Entertainment

A roaming band works perfectly for a drinks reception, keeping your guests entertained but not at such a loud volume that they can't talk and network.

You could also have the roaming band stay over dinner, wandering between the tables.

The Vintage Strollers

Feel-good party band The Vintage Strollers play a great mix of swing and pop to put you in good spirits.

Alexander's Dixieland Band

Quirky vintage band Alexander's Dixieland Band perform lively trad jazz, with instrumental and vocal-led options available.

Dinner Music

Our jazz bands are perfect for dinner entertainment. They look stunning and create a fantastic atmosphere, but they aren't too loud - so your guests can still chat and network.

All these bands also work perfectly for your drinks your reception if you'd prefer something more subtle than one of our roaming bands.

Lady Gatsby Jazz Band

For decadent 1920s-themed events, the Lady Gatsby Jazz Band and their speakeasy sets create a great musical backdrop.

Hollywood Jazz Band

For the ultimate stylish jazz band, look no further than the Hollywood Jazz Band – a fantastic ensemble that adds a touch of a glamour to your event.

The Jazz Essentials

For subtle and sophisticated music, book our instrumental band The Jazz Essentials to create a fabulous ambience.

The Soul Essentials

For a chilled out vibe, check out our vocal-led soul duo The Soul Essentials and their great selection of pop hits.

Awards ceremony

Stings for your Awards Ceremony

If you’re having an awards ceremony, talk to us about our award ceremony stings, which would normally be performed by your evening party band (see below).

We can create a bespoke programme of walk-on music – ask us about an awards ceremony we performed at for British Gymnastics, who were celebrating their 2016 Olympics success!

Dance performance and lessons

Vintage Swing Collective

After dinner, entertain your guests with a dance performance from either our vintage or contemporary dancers.

They perform stunning routines to our live party bands - and the vintage dancers can also take your guests in a beginner's dance lesson, which is a perfect ice-breaker before people let their hair down and party. 

The Party

After the formalities are over, it’s time to party to the sounds of one of our award-winning bands. Remember that with Down for the Count, every note you hear is live - we never use click tracks or backing tracks giving our performance unrivalled energy and spontaneity.

Capital Sounds Showband

Capital Sounds Showband is a stunning ensemble, performing as a 10- to 27-piece line-up. The energetic performance is great to watch and dance to, and is perfect for corporate events and charity balls.

Swing Orchestra

If you’re looking for something a little different, our Vintage Swing Orchestra performs classic big band and swing music which everyone can dance to – especially suitable for vintage-themed events.

The Get Downs

Or if you want a bit of everything, our swing and soul band The Get Downs is the best choice for you - one of the most popular party bands in the UK, who are always guaranteed to entertain.
