Our music conjures up memories of great singers and songwriters such as George Gershwin, Jelly Roll Morton, Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin and many more. Recently revelling in 'Strictly Gershwin', we will be getting those dancing feet moving this year introducing a Fred and Ginger theme 'Cheek to Cheek'.

On stage at the lovely Plaza Theatre in Romsey with the wonderful and vivacious Anita Harris, May 2015


In addition to playing at dances and functions (and appearing on national and international radio) we also put on concert performances in London and the South East of England (and we can be tempted to go further afield - for example we have entertained on the Queen Mary 2 on a weekend cruise to Guernsey which included top musicians such as Jamie Cullum, Acker Bilk, Madeline Bell and Stacey Kent).

Nice to get a mention in the EMF ad in BBC Proms programmes in 2015 - toe tapping we are

We have been lucky in 2014 with a play from Howard Leader on BBC Radio Lincolnshire before he joined the audience pinning back their lugholes for our Wisbech concert, and Bill Rennells has given us airtime on his programme Harmony Night on BBC Radio Oxford, Kent and Berkshire before helping compere at Thame.

2013 got off to a good start as we floated across the national airwaves on BBC Radio 2's 'The Organist Entertains' review of the year on New Year's Day: we appeared again with 'Say it with Music' on 12th March, and we then were Paddlin' Madeleine Home on 6th August. As well as national radio we have recently had airings on BBC Radio's Hereford and Worcester, Humberside, Lincolnshire, Shropshire, Solent, Stoke, Surrey and Sussex.

Previously we have hummed cross the ether on Meridian FM (April 2010), Angel Radio (DJ Pete Cross, with Jeanie Barton August 2009, and February 2009, December 2008 and December 2007), and Radio Newcastle (Frank Wappat, August 2009).Our first apperance on national radio was music from our CD 'Nice Work If You Can Get It' featured by Des Carrington on BBC Radio 2. In January 2007. We had international exposure with 'Mississippi Mud' played by Steve Ashley in Spain on Valle Radio  in July 2008. Des aired us again June 14th 2013, another track from 'Say It With Music'..

And on BBC Radio 2 again in 2015, including 'Say it with Music' on St George's Day 2015.
