Trouser Tie Tailors

About

London's premiere vintage band, the Trouser Tie Tailors are firmly established at home and internationally playing Harlem Swing and the Hot Jazz of the 1920s and 1930s.

Influenced by Fats Waller, Fletcher Henderson, Wingy Manone and even the British swing scene of the 30s with Nat Gonella, they bring the very best vintage jazz and swing with them wherever they go.

" Righteously retro yet youthful: traditional jazzers who dive back to prohibition-era speakeasies for inspiration. Playing clarinet/trumpet/guitar-led Dixieland hits from Waller, Ellington and Basie with zeal! "

Time Out

" It was a joy to hear you and the band.. Well done for doing such a great job! "

Ronnie Scotts

Over the last two years, highlights have included shows and events at the Royal Festival Hall, Ronnie Scotts, Paris Jazz Roots Festival, and the Royal Albert Hall. This year they are already booked to play festivals and shows in France, Belgium, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, Ireland and all across the UK.

Expect singing, swing, dancing and prancing!

" Really fabulous - Well done and thank you. "
