Terrific jazz from the 1920's to 1950's brought to you from this fabulous 3 to 7 piece swing band. 78RPM incorporate the most memorable jazz combined with considerable experience, style and panache. Highly recommended. Jazz Band / Swing Band in London.


78RPM jazz band



The jazz music of Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Irving Berlin (to name a few!) are loved by all generations and lend themselves to marvellous dance music - probably the reason why 78rpm is so popular for wedding receptions and other special occasions. This wonderful jazz band evolved out of The Piccadilly Dance Orchestra, a twelve piece jazz band whose terrific success soon led to provide the same delightful atmosphere and swinging music. 78rpm can contain anything from three to seven musicians, to play the music of the 1920's, 30's and 40's with tremendous style, sophistication and a great rhythm to make any event go with a swing.

Michael [Musical Director] founded 78rpm to recreate this unsurpassed era of popular jazz and swing. His care with the orchestra's repertoire combined with the talent of his hand-picked musicians, is guaranteed to make any event a sensation!! An excellent swing band to jazz up your next event.

Background music is supplied on CDs/iPod when the band is not performing.

Excellent group of guys who were very patient and so very professional. They were everything we wanted and probably quite a lot more! Your agency were very quick to respond and contacted us exactly when you said you would. You were so easy to deal with there is not much more I can say, except Thank You.

The band were absolutely wonderful, they sounded and looked fantastic. Despite the pressures for me of the evening, their wonderful music enabled me to actually enjoy the whole thing; the dance floor was packed all of the time and they could not have been better. Many thanks therefore to you and to them. Bembridge Yacht Club, Isle of Wight

The band (78RPM) added a real touch of class to our wedding reception. They arrived promptly and set up in no time at all. They were both flexible and professional. The male vocalist was amazing and the band leader guided them effortlessly through 3 sets of music varying from lively danceable swing to nice and relaxed easy listening. All the age groups at the wedding absolutely raved about the band and I am still getting calls from friends and family requesting details so they too can hire them. They truly were the icing on the (wedding reception) cake. Thank you all.

A big thank you to your band! The evening, thanks in no small measure to you and your friends, was magical. The band was ideal: not only did you have the right repertoire but, clearly, you have the experience to pace the music to the spirit of the evening, to build on the obvious enjoyment of the dancers. Everybody commented on the excellence of the evening! And special thanks should go to your singer – she had a very special presence and really outstanding voice! We wish her a very long and successful career.

I felt I was taking a risk in not hearing 78rpm prior to our wedding, but the risk was well worth taking. Awesome musicians, great playlist - they even took the time to learn the song we wanted for our first dance. I would both recommend and book again. If I saw they were playing a local venue, I'd be there in a shot.

You pitched the mood just right - background music for canapes: and then really helping the party go with a swing, from the first dance onwards. The guests loved it and 78rpm is getting regular and glowing mentions in the thank you letters. Weddings need that ingredient "x" to lift off - and 78rpm really DID provide it; creating the best atmosphere. Thank you all for your professionalism and, most of all, for the music. In all senses, it made our wedding day go with a swing!
