Full Biography

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!

We did not stop dancing!

booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for their Wedding in North Yorkshire March 2024

“The band were honestly amazing! Their style, interaction with our guests and varied repertoire meant it was a night of two steps and clicking fingers but some of the best ( an worst) dancing you could possibly want from your family and friends . Grannies or groomamen, everyone was up!”

Better than i could possibly have imagined

5 stars - Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks are Highly Recommended
booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for their Wedding in Cornwall

“Wow - Dave and co were incredible at my wedding. Despite having driven 7 hours to get to us, they were punctual and energetic, giving us a performance that got everyone on the dance floor and entertaining all ages. The musicians themselves are incredibly talented, and Dave is a real showman. We stressed a lot about choosing the right band - we wanted people to want to dance, but not for the set to be cheesy or overdone, and we wanted it to feel cool and not too wedding-y. Dave and his band were everything we wanted and more - everyone commented on how good they were and i have never seen my dad move as much in his life. I also didn't stop dancing all night. They also learnt our first dance song and performed it beautifully. The best money we spent on the whole weekend. Book them!”

booked Blue Note Mitch and The Red Hot Jacks for their event in North Yorkshire

“These guys are phenomenal. Not only were the five of them genuinely really nice people, but their music contributed immeasurably to the amazing 1920s themed winter ball! Showing both flexibility and versatility with our long list of requests, Mitch and the band provided such an impressive array of entertainment. Almost all attendees commented on just how awesome this band were! They were honestly incredible! They come with the best gear, play a wide variety of instruments and really focus on keeping the crowd entertained. They were such a welcome addition to the function that I'd never heard so many 'encore's. Without question or a pause of hesitation, we will be booking this band again!!!!”
