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!
