About

The Decent Chaps quartet has played for Jimmy Carr, Geoff Whiting, Hattie Hayridge, Richard Herring, Kate Adie, Richard Baker, Freddie Flintoff, Nick Owen to name but a few and play nationwide at many weddings/civil partnerships, cocktail/dinner/garden parties, balls and civic and corporate functions.

Their large and varied repertoire includes Jazz, Swing, Latin-American, Jump-Jive and Ratpack and is excellent for both background and for dancing later in the evening. The instrumentation comprises clarinet, saxophones, flute, piano, vocals, backing vocals, string bass, guitar and drums and the band has their own stage lighting. The Chaps always wear full tuxedo, with wing-collared shirts or if the weather is very hot, matching waistcoats and bow ties (also with wing-collared shirts).

The Chaps also offer a free service in that if a special piece of music you would like, for the First Dance perhaps, is not in our repertoire, they will endeavor to have an arrangement put together for your event.

Where are they based?

The band are based in the Nottinghamshire area and frequently play in the Notts, Lincs, Derbys, Leics areas although they travel nationwide by request.
