Gentlemen of the Road


Gentlemen of the Road perform at weddings, functions and events across the country, bringing their own combination of classic 20's swing hits and modern tracks arranged in an authentic vintage swing style.

Gentlemen of the Road Female Vocals2

You'll hear the music you'd expect from a quality vintage 20's - 40's swing act like them; The Charleston, It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing and "Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby" but there's a cunning twist - they also cater for wider tastes by playing up to date chart songs by artists such as George Ezra, Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Daft Punk and lots more.

They love to mix their repertoire up and perform a wide range of swing songs, but something that sets them apart are their innovative arrangements of modern popular songs in a classic 20's style. With advance notice, they can even do a unique arrangement of your first dance or special request for an additional charge - what could be better than a bespoke first dance created just for you?!

Gentlemen of the Road always perform with loads of energy which guarantees a lively and fun experience, and their bang up to date equipment and fantastic quality instruments ensure you'll hear them at their best.

The band offer either 2 x 60 minute sets or 2 x 45 minute sets of foot tapping tunes in that roaring 20's style which celebrates all things vintage, fronted by an outstanding female vocalist. Please note, instant quotes are based on 2 x 60 minute sets.

Gentlemen of the Road are experienced professionals so you are in safe hands. Members of the band also have a wealth of experience outside the wedding and corporate scene, at both Jazz clubs and festivals, including London Jazz festival, Brecon Jazz festival, Langnau Jazz Nights Switzerland, the 606 Club London, Hay Festival of Literature and Art and countless more.

They have also had the privilege to play for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, and other prestigious events for clients such as GQ magazine.

Gentlemen of the Road

For my 40th birthday last November, I wanted to re-create some swing style magic for myself and my friends. And with Gentlemen of the Road that's exactly what I got. The set list was awesome, and you can tell the band love what they do as the sound they produced was wonderful. I can't recommend them highly enough. Two long sets just wasn't enough! Thanks guys, we had an incredible evening.

Gentlemen of the Road

The whole experience was great, from the ease of booking to your response to my questions, thank you!

Gentlemen of the Road

They were amazingly relaxed and flexible - exactly what you need on your wedding day when nothing seems to run to plan!

We couldn't have been more delighted with Gentlemen of the Road's performance, the dance floor was packed from the moment they started and stayed that way for the whole set.

Can I say a massive thank you to you and the rest of the band for all your efforts on Saturday night. The music was superb and many of our guests have commented on the quality and originality of the music. It suited everyone of all ages and everyone was up dancing which was exactly what we were hoping for. The whole experience was great, from the ease of booking to your response to my questions, thank you. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you and will certainly look to book you for any future family celebrations.

Gentlemen of the Road

Punctual and professional we would definitely book them again!

Gentlemen of the Road

Gentlemen of the Road provided an excellent performance at our Annual Dinner in November 2015. We have a mixed group of professionals attending but the band appealed to all there. The preparation in advance was very smooth from our perspective and having used Pete's service before, I could depend on their reliability on the night"
