The Jazz Hats

The Jazz Hats are a swinging good-time band that loves to mix old and new, to get the dance floor full, specialising in exciting arrangements from the swing era and beyond.

The band was founded with dancing in mind, but find that their broad repertoire is popular with all ages and tastes. Ideal for weddings, parties and dance events. The Jazz Hats are an experienced and entertaining band that always goes down well!

The core element of our music is based on the 1920s swing style, including classic swing arrangement such as the Charleston, It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing and Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby. The ban also caters to a larger audience by performing up to date chart songs by artists such as George Ezra, Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Daft Punk and many more.

The Jazz Hats love to mix their repertoire up and perform a wide range of swing songs but are set apart from the rest with their innovative arrangements of modern popular songs in classic style.

“The Jazz Hats provided an excellent performance at our Annual Dinner in November 2015. We have a mixed group of professionals attending but the Band appealed to all there. The preparationin advance was very smooth from our perspective and having used Pete’s service before, I could depend on their reliability on the night.”

" The Jazz Hats played at our wedding reception, we loved the performance and style. The guys really made the evening special and played our first dance music, which they learnt especially for us. All of our guests commented on how good the music was and how it created the perfect relaxed and fun atmosphere for our wedding reception. Thanks so much it was a perfect end to our wedding day."

“Can I say a massive thank you to the Jazz Hats for all their efforts on Saturday night. The music was superb and many of our guests have commented on the quality and originality of the music. It suited everyone of all ages and everyone was up dancing which was exactly what we were hoping for. The whole experience was great, from the ease of booking to your response to my questions, thank you. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them and will certainly look to book you for any future family celebrations.”
