Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks is highly recommended

"What a fantastic band! We couldn’t have asked for more. They were even better than expected and had our wedding party up on the dance floor for the whole evening. We had ages from 3 to 83 and they were all up. It was fantastic! They are professional, helpful and very talented. We also had them do an acoustic set before the evening which was a great warm up while people were having coffee. I can’t recommend them enough. All of our guests commented on how good they were. Book with confidence – you won’t be disappointed."

Vintage Music & Type Of Show
Blue Note Mitch & The Red Hot Jacks play three different types of set;

- Ska, Soul & Rock ’N’ Roll hits of the 1960s to the present day!
- Jazz, Swing & Jive hits of the 1930s to the 1960s!
- Classic ska tunes of the 1960s to the 1980s!

These are great fun with interactive audience participation in each genres & include between one and two hours of live playing for each genre. 

The Jazz sets can be played as background music for a light & classy afternoon or as a fully engaging evening of dance-floor-filling music featuring some of Jazz’s finest & most memorable songs.

The Pop, Rock, Soul & Rock ’N’ Roll sets are also very engaging, louder than the Jazz & designed to get people dancing with the grooviest & most iconic vintage hits as well as modern ‘Indie’ anthems.

The Ska sets are for the niche ska lover and are very energetic and full of all the favourite ska tunes.


Blue Note Mitch, the singer, has a great ‘feel’ for passionate music & loves engaging in a friendly & entertaining dialogue with audiences as well as incorporating participatory singing & dancing with the audience into the show. If the audience are shy, Blue Note Mitch will hold back & go easy on them but if it’s a party you want, Mitch will be in his element!

"In short, Mitch and the band were simply fantastic. They are talented, professional and very easy to deal with. They had the wedding jumping and I have had a number of the guests comment on how good the band was.

They even let a mate of mine get up and sing a number with them during their performance!

We had a few logistic issues being in a marquee but Mitch sorted these without a fuss and everything ran like clockwork. I would recommend the band to anyone and thank you to Marc at Alive Network for all your help. It is clearly an organised and well run operation."

"We would like to thank Mitch and the band for an amazing day. The band started with a jazz set during our drinks reception this was just a taster for an amazing night ahead.

The band played two sets and were also very good to allow a member of the family who flew over from America to play a song with them which really made their trip and evening a very special one.

The music had a great range from early sixties up to the present day and the dance floor was always buzzing with people dancing.

We would highly recommend the band to anyone wishing to have a good party or to make their wedding a very special event."

"Thank you all for making our wedding day more special than we ever could have dreamt. We are both so grateful for your time and effort you put in to all the different musical arrangements.

The whole wedding party were so impressed with your piano, jazz and evening sets. Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without it."

"A huge thanks to Mitch and the band for the best night we have had in years, they arrived on time and were fully set up with plenty of time to spare.

Mitch made a huge effort to make sure all age groups were catered for and the night was a roaring success. They play great & create a brilliant party atmosphere with lights & audience interaction & class musicianship.

Book them, you will not be disappointed."

"Fantastic, a definite 5 stars. We booked this band for our wedding, we had guests of all ages and they were perfect to suit all tastes. Thank you so much for such a great night, our guests are still talking about you.

Looking forward to seeing you again in May at our friends wedding, who booked them at our wedding after having such a great night.

Thanks again.

Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks

"We booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks through an agency, plucking their name from a long list, hoping they would be good for a party celebrating 16th, 18th and 50th birthdays, so a really mixed age group.

Arrangements with Mitch were very easy. We left the play list to him. On the day Mitch and the lads turned up on time. Our venue was only accessible by 4 x 4 but they were not fazed by this, unloaded all the equipment and we drove up to the top of the hill through 2 fields in couple of land rovers. They set up quickly and got going.

They read the crowd brilliantly, all the lads really got into the spirit of it, and they really made the party go with a bang. We had a really great night, everyone
thought they were brilliant, we had so many comments afterwards.

I would thoroughly recommend them for any party. We would love to book them again and a friend of mine already has.

Thanks again boys!

"Alive Network were quick to respond, (I was in a hurry!) very efficient, and polite.

Blue Note Mitch and the Red Hot Jacks were fantastic, exactly right for our party, they gauged the crowd, atmosphere and had us all captivated, from 8 to 80, well into the night.

They were great fun and really made the evening. Everyone's feedback was 'Where did you find that band?'

"From the first conversation we had with Mitch and the band they were honest, straight forward, accommodating and easy to work with. They offered an excellent service and went that extra mile right throughout the process to provide an excellent service as the wedding band.

Working under pressure and with limited time on the day, the band were professional, hard working and delivered an amazing show. They remained energetic and again, flexible to make the performance enjoyable for the audience and those of us who were responsible for making the night run smoothly when things cropped up, as they inevitably do. Book this band! "
