PROHIBITION SWING BAND HIRE
LOCAL SWING BANDS
LOCAL SWING BANDS The Prohibition Swing Band are a group of authentic hep cats who play jump jive and jazz from the Golden Age of popular song.

NOTTINGHAM JAZZ BAND HIRE
The Jazzelators specialise in playing live jazz for any event, both in Nottingham and further afield:
And Much More!
We use our experience to make every event we play for as memorable as possible, and we guarantee a well-presented, well-rehearsed enthusiastic jazz band no matter what the occasion!
Areas We Cover
While we are a Nottingham-based jazz band, we are able to travel to most areas of the country. The Jazzelators have performed as a live jazz band at Weddings and Events in Wiltshire, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire amongst other places.
Why Book The Jazzelators
The Jazzelators are an experienced Jazz band in Nottingham, who are able to travel for gigs across the UK. We are always professionally presented (Black Trousers and Shirt, or Dinner Jackets on request), and we have an extensive song list covering not just Jazz but also light pop and blues, which means we can adapt and develop a set list perfectly suited to the tone of your occasion. We provide all our own equipment including PA, so you only have to hire us, and you will be sure of classy, professional entertainment.
Being a quartet we have the power and energy to keep a party going, but we are small enough that we can work in fairly tight spaces and sit ‘in the background’ playing lounge jazz for receptions, cocktail parties, pre-dinner music etc.
