The band are based in Edinburgh and frequently play across the city, as well as around central and northern Scotland and are more than happy to travel further afield.
Let the Tenement Jazz Band take you back to the red hot roots of jazz with scorching renditions of early recordings and fresh takes on lesser-known tunes. Powered along by the classic New Orleans front line of trumpet, trombone and saxophones, you're in for a truly swinging set.
The band is made up of some of Edinburgh's best jazz musicians and can play in any space great or small. They're just as happy entertaining crowds un-amplified in the great outdoors as they are ramping up the volume in clubs and concert halls. Whether you need some background style for a vintage event, the headline act for a late-night speakeasy, or a band for your swing-danceathon, the Tenement Jazz Band's versatile line-up is guaranteed to deliver toe-tapping good times.
The band is always excited to relay the music of the earliest jazz pioneers (think Clarence Williams, Jelly-Roll Morton, Kid Ory and Louis Armstrong) to modern audiences. Upcoming dates include jazz festivals across Scotland and sure-to-be storming sets at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
The Tenement Jazz Band is available for corporate occasions, social events, weddings, festivals, and personal bookings across the country.
