78 RPM Period Band

78rpm can contain anything from two to eight of London's top musicians, who play the great music of the Art Deco and Great Gatsby era, the 1920s to 1950s, with tremendous style, sophistication and a great rhythm to make any event go with a swing.

The songs of Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Irving Berlin (to name but a few) are loved by ALL GENERATIONS and lend themselves to marvellous dance music - probably the reason why 78rpm Jazz Band is so popular for wedding receptions, anniversaries and other special occasions.

The classic six-piece 78rpm features a male or female vocalist, with saxophone, trumpet, piano, double bass and drums. If six performers are too much, just choose your favourites, for example saxophone piano and bass make a excellent trio, or you could add a vocalist to the trio and let the SWING and NOSTALGIA take over!

Other musical options include adding a male vocalist to croon those Sinatra classics (you can hear our male vocalist on some of the demo tracks to the left of this page), or basing the band around violin and guitar to create that swinging "Hot Club of France" sound.

78rpm grew out of The Piccadilly Dance Orchestra, a twelve-piece outfit whose terrific success soon led to requests for smaller groups to provide the same delightful atmosphere and swinging music.

Musical director Michael Law founded both 78rpm and The Piccadilly Dance Orchestra to recreate this unsurpassed era of popular music. His care with the orchestra's repertoire combined with the talent of his hand-picked musicians is guaranteed to make any event a sensation.
