The Speakeasy Revival Orchestra

Combining the finest jazz musicianship with humour

and a devilish flair, this fantastic Sussex-based ensemble

performs jazz music with energy, finesse, and an extra comedy twist.

A magnificent seven-piece band of experienced professional musicians

who play swing, jazz, and contemporary music, along with original tunes, all in their own inimitable jazz style,

with influences including Spike Jones & his City Slickers, Fletcher Henderson, the Mnozil Brass,

Monty Python's Flying Circus, and the Electro Swing Post Modern Jukebox movement.

On top of that, this exciting show-band can add entertainment in a special way

with a comedy performance which may include hats, puppets, barbershop singing,

balloons and loud bangs. What can go wrong?!

"I love the dancing"

A.W. Facebook


"Just a quick line to say how fantastic I thought you and all the orchestra were last night. I think you’ve devised a set which is absolutely perfect and shows off all your various skills.  What a talented lot you are - and you seem to be having so much fun, which communicates itself to the audience.  PS - I’ve seen Woody Allen and his group play at The Brighton Centre and they’re not NEARLY as good as you."
