If you are looking to hire a jazz band, or a swing band for whatever reason, we want to do our best to persuade you that you have come to the right place. The Mississippi Swamp Dogs Jazz Band is one of the most adaptable, accessible and entertaining jazz bands on the London Jazz Club circuit.
Between them the band members have appeared at all the main Jazz Clubs in London and have entertained the Queen, Prince Charles, Joan Collins…..and even Jeffrey Archer!!!
I hired the Mississippi Swamp Dogs to perform at the Belgravia Classic Car Show. It was the first time we’d run the event, so I wanted a band who understood the brief. Not only did they understand the brief, but they exceeded everybody’s expectations. They performed all over the gardens, and also did a set in the marquee. With an event like this, flexibility is key, and nothing was too much trouble. I would have no hesitation in recommending them, and look forward to welcoming them back next year.

Fundamentally the Mississippi Swamp Dogs are a New Orleans themed jazz band. Not “Old Style” New Orleans, although we play some of the good old ones. You’ll recognise some of the jazz names and songs from the dark and distant past, but this is a band that covers a wide range of music form the Big Easy and the Deep South. Here is a wonderful video showing you some information on our show, perfect for a theatre or jazz hire for a club.

Jazz Band issues
What don’t you want? You don’t want a jazz band playing inappropriate way out indulgent modern jazz at your wedding.
You don’t want a band that can only do one style, you don’t want a band that doesn’t have a vocalist amongst the musicians (even if you don’t end up calling on his services) You don’t want a band that is uncooperative about noise levels or where to set up, you don’t want a band turning up late and scruffy.
Jazz Band requirements
If you book the Mississippi Swamp Dogs you will get a band that can tailor its repertoire to the needs of the audience, that can perform with or without vocals, can throw in some party hits at a moments notice, that look fabulous, are totally cooperative and reliable and who’s main raison detre’ is to give you and your guests a brilliant time.
