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.

We are back up and running after the lockdown, and booking gigs from Autumn 2021 as our lead singer is currently touring in a European tour of Hamlet. Available for  birthdays, parties, celebrations, jazz events, indoor and outdoor, public and private as per current government restrictions and your requirements. We are mindful of social distancing and will always follow the  current guidelines but we also know the world needs music right now, and  we’re  excited to still be putting the swing in your event- as often as restrictions allow and at a safe distance!

Watch out for the The Hot Jazz Vagabonds at Riverhouse Barn, Walton-on-Thames on 13th November and at Brasserie Toulouse Lautrec, Kennington on November 25th 2021. 

We made a number of music videos in lockdown, check them out here on our youtube channel here. 

The home of a few 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.
