About Us

If you’re looking for a jazz singer or a jazz band with heart, soul and great swing, you’ve come to the right place.

Singer and band-leader Airlie Scott is currently working in “Hairspray’ the musical for Royal Caribbean and therefore her bands will resume properly with bookings from May 2020. If you’d like us to book you a swing band in the meantime, do contact prontojazz@gmail.com to work with another singer from our team. 

The home of a couple of great swing bands, led by band leader and vocalist Airlie Scott, let us help you find what you’re looking for.

Airlie Scott and her various bands and line-ups play for lindihop, swing and balboa dance events, for functions, birthdays/weddings, at prestigious clubs, and regularly at London jazz clubs such as the Bull’s Head Barnes and more. 

Pronto Jazz, a vocal-led jazz band based in London with its heart in 40-60s jazz and swing, spiced up with soulful ballads, groovy latin standards, and just a hint of Italy!

Pronto Swing is our more vintage swing cousin, also vocal-led with a slightly earlier 30s-50s repertoire, a love of the American songbook, swing standards and the perfect vintage grooves for swing and lindyhop dancers.

We’ve recently been performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with our popular family show “Swing from the Movies” more info here, and do get in touch if you’d like to book us to play for you!

The Hot Jazz Vagabonds Established London-based vagabond jazz musicians present a hot jazz sandwich of french chanson, gypsy jazz tunes, early swing, Latin tunes and exciting originals, led by vocalist Airlie Scott. Our usual line-up includes the wonderful improvising cellist Shirley Smart, and fabulous guitarists Peter Michaels and David Ahmed on guitar. See here for more info.
