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 popular and up to date chart songs by artists such as George Ezra, Michael Jackson, 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. With a 6-piece line-up of Female Vocals, Saxophone, Trumpet, Guitar, Double Bass, Drums, they are versatile and bring a full sound to any event. They also offer background music in smaller line-ups if that is more suited to your event - for example at a drinks reception. 

The band offer either 2 x 60 minute set or 2 x 45 minute sets of foot tapping tunes in that roaring 20's style which celebrates all things vintage, fronted by one of two outstanding female vocalists who both are experienced professionals who perform with the band regularly. 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 many 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, Porsche and DHL.

The band were absolutely fantastic and completely accommodating. Would highly recommend them!

Gentlemen of the Road

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

Gentlemen of the Road

The band were really helpful when we contacted them before the wedding. On the day they set up with no fuss, and let us borrow their mics for our speeches. Their 3 sets were all really good-everyone was dancing from the beginning until the end, and everyone has been commenting on what a great band they are. They were so full of energy, and even ended up wearing props from our photo booth which added to the fun- the drummer looked great in a fez!

Gentlemen of the Road

Thank you so so so much for performing at our wedding! Everything was smooth on the day and I didn't have to worry about anything which was reassuring. We were so impressed by everything!

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 provided an excellent performance at our Annual Dinner. 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.

Gentlemen of the Road played at our wedding reception, we loved the performance and style. The guys really made the evening special and played our first dance music, which they learnt especially for us. All of our guests commented on how good the music was and how it created the perfect relaxed and fun atmosphere to our wedding reception. Thanks so much it was a perfect end to our wedding day.

Gentlemen of the Road

Gentlemen of the Road played at our wedding celebration and were absolutely fantastic. We found the hiring process very straight forward, with no hiccups at all. The two sets they played were great with ‘I get a kick out of you’ and ‘Get Lucky’ played at our request. The band were lovely and had everyone up and dancing; they definitely made our celebration a night to remember!
