Alternatively, please do not hestitate to contact us if you would prefer this information in an alternative format.

Bands & Musicians for events and functions
We do not currently keep listings of bands or musicians available for hire for particular events, however you are welcome to contact us with your enquiry and we would be happy to point you in the right direction as to where you can find this information. There is an extremely useful website called Jazz Services at which has a database of jazz, swing & big bands & musicians available for hire. And don't forget that you can also try the Yellow Pages - browse under Entertainers.
