We are Dr Butler’s Hatstand Medicine Band, a travelling troupe of musicological minstrels, peddling our unique good-time tonic to all four corners of the land. Made from a secret combination of early blues and jazz forms, a sprinkle of ragtime, a dash of hot swing, the essence of sweet spiritual, a pinch of the oldest of old-timey melodies and a teaspoon of Vaudevillian and Music Hall showoffery, all whisked together with the most esoteric of folk rhythms. The result is a surpassingly melodious music which is replete with tones of joy and fulfilment. This harmonic medicine is a natural aid to titillation and is a guaranteed restorer of vitality, vim and vigour.
Allow us present to you our good-time rags and reels, show stoppers and sight stealers; music for foot stomping and toe tickling that joins hearts with flesh whilst invigorating the thinking mind. We stand before you as harbingers of gentility, bearers of ingenuity, possessors of con...

5 piece band
Harmonica and sax led Blues Band.
We play many of the well known blues standards as well as some of the lesser well known.
Most of our blues is high energy driving blues but we like to throw in a few softer numbers for balance.
We are a high energy 1920s - 1950s trio that plays popular Blues, Jazz, Ragtime, Rock & Roll, Swing and Boogie music.
With guitar, double bass, drums, washboard and three vocals, Leeds City Stompers produce a sound as authentic and vibrant as our favourite pre-1950's influences
We're all fans of traditional blues, jazz, swing etc and LOVE bringing to life the music we adore! We have classic and well-loved songs such as: Dust My Broom, Shake Rattle and Roll, Sitting on Top of the World and Sweet Home Chicago as well as many others.
The band uses 1930s metal resonator guitars, a real 1920s drum kit and washboards as well as wearing tailored vintage suits. We swap instruments and singers at various times in a set. This provides you with a show with a wide variety of sounds and styles while also being authentic, danceable and with the odd quip between songs - entertaining and humorous.

SALUT formed in 2014 as a funk & soul originals band and quickly had success playing to large crowds at the likes of The Isle Of Wight festival. Their unique energy, showmanship and style soon become noticed by event agents who began to book the band for corporate events. It didn’t take long until word spread to the luxury wedding industry where SALUT have since become one of the most booked international luxury-wedding bands.
SALUT’s clients hate the idea of cheesy & predictable and love the idea of fresh, young & super-talented. There is a huge appeal that you get a real recording band at your wedding and not a random collection of singers and musicians. SALUT is predominantly the same band line-up week in, week out, although there is a pool of amazing like-for-like musicians to cover for any eventuality.

This is our number one "go to" band for our in house party events. They never fail to add their special kind of magic to the proceedings. Song after song that you recognise but may not have heard for a while but delivered in such a unique way. Maximum marks for professionalism. This is a seriously good outfit with years of experience.
Sam Nayar (Escape Hotels Limited) 10/10
Andy, Dave & Leah were 100% on the ball, arrived early and set up well before guests arrived. all three looked amazing in there outfits, very smart in the 60s theme.
Andy and Leah both taking turns on lead vocals, both were brilliant.
Music was just right and they got everyone up dancing and made sure the birthday girl got the attention she deserved.
Nothing was a problem for them time wise if one of the sets went over from the time slot we agreed it was fine, Asked guests for songs and then played them so very accommodating for everyone.
All three were very relaxed and just went with the flow which put everyone at ease, had an Elvis impersonator booked as well and the Swinging 60s accommodated him by letting him use some of there power points etc.
Hope I get asked again for this sort of band because I know straight away who I would book.
100% it would be THE SWINGING 60S.
Thanks Andy, Dave and Leah for a job well done.
Kind regards Alan
