About this Act

London based swing and jazz act the Red Roosters are one of the most in demand acts in the south east, who despite their comparative youth, has some of the most experienced musicians in the UK. Their music harks back to the dance halls of the 1920s through to the 1940s and they not only sound the part they look it too. 

Their repertoire is suitably large and diverse, made up with the likes of Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and many more.
