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.

Unfortunately due to Covid-19, our upcoming Spring/ Summer gigs are currently postponed. However, singer Airlie Scott has been jamming on her street with a local trumpeter each week for Clapforourcarers and has enjoyed making some recent isolationcreations in lockdown. Check out her youtube channel here. There will definitely be more soon until we can get back out to play! Music lifts us and will definitely continue someway or other!

After a year’s contract abroad, and the current lockdown period, Airlie and her bands hope to be back and available for more bookings from September 2020 onwards.

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 lindyhop, 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.

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.

We specialise in providing sophisticated jazz music for events, gigs and more.

Let us put the swing in your event!

Whether it be dance event, restaurant gig, office party, wedding reception or special birthday, let us add that extra something!
