78rpm presents a comprehensive selection of Ratpack, Swing and Jazz classics drawn from the Great American Songbook, served up with stylish vocals and superb musicianship. Immaculately turned out, this band is ideal for both wedding celebrations and corporate receptions.

“This fantastic party band evokes a lost world where top hats, white ties and tails were the accepted dresscode and love was forever in the air…”

Look forward to a glitzy, glamorous celebration of the Golden Age of Hollywood and the smash-hit Broadway Musicals – all the very best of these magical ‘tweenwar silver-screen songs, dance-tunes and romantic melodies can readily be found in the band’s extensive repertoire.

Impeccably presented both musically and visually, 78rpm takes you back to that glittering, escapist period between the two world wars when romance was king. Light, frothy vocals, lilting saxophone and stylish piano set the tone. It’s all elegantly underpinned by a toe-tapping rhythm section comprising guitar, double-bass and drums. The band supplies a high-quality PA producing an excellent sound in venues of all sizes.

The line-up is extremely flexible. For informal, intimate entertainment at a small drinks party, a piano/vocal duo may well fit the bill. If dancing is required, add in a drumkit. For larger gatherings, a moody saxophone or a thrilling trumpet (or both) will lend additional colour, texture and warmth to the topline, while guitar and double-bass fill out the harmony, driving the rhythm along and contributing to the overall visual effect.

Whatever your entertainment needs, 78rpm will invariably present a smart, stylish performance to delight your guests and suit the occasion.
