The Jazz Spivs

Jazz Band

Dames and gents gather round, there’s a new band in town, The Jazz Spivs! We’re a unique live band specialising in music from the roaring twenties. Music from the era has seen a great resurgence in popularity thanks to TV shows like Boardwalk Empire, Mr Selfridge, Downton Abbey and the recent film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Our 1920s jazz is perfect for dancing, drinking cocktails and generally having a hotsy-totsy time to!

So we’re back from Honeymoon and I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for performing at our big day. What we saw and heard was utterly fantastic and we’ve received nothing but positive comments about how great you guys both looked and sounded. You really set the mood and the venue and weather was perfect for it so it really went down very well. Many thanks once again, and the next time I’m in need of a Jazz band I’ll be sure to think of you!” Charlotte and Ryan ! “The Jazz Spivs were superb and exactly what I was looking for. They were professional, looked great, played brilliantly and importantly played the 1920s style I was expecting and they were a nice group of people too!” Christina ! “Hi Jonathan, Just to say thank you so much for yesterday – The Jazz Spivs sounded absolutely amazing at my wedding.
