Our music conjures up memories of great singers and songwriters such as George Gershwin, Bessie Smith, Jelly Roll Morton, Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin and many more. We recently featured evenings of tunes from the Great American Songbook covered by stars such as Rod Stewart and Michael Buble.
'We attended the New Foxtrot Serenaders show last night and, judging by the audience response, they were as impressed as us with their performance.
A superb show in every respect which begs my next question; Can we please have them back again in the future?' Peter Harms on the Wokingham Theatre website
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).

Tuesday 6 August Nigel Ogden was Paddlin' Madeline Home on The Organist Entertains for another Radio 2 airing in 2013
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. So far this year as well as national radio we have had airings on radios Hereford and Worcester, Humberside, Lincolnshire, Shropshire, Solent, Stoke, Surrey and Sussex.
Previously we have hummed cross the airwaves 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'..
See our selection of CDs on our the recordings page. New for 20011 isSay It With Music with the great Simon Gledhill on the Wurlitzer organ. Our seasonal offering A White Christmas is still available to add extra fun to those timeless tunes. Get those farthings together ready to order some today.
