Their performance was outstanding.

5 stars - Bobby Jones and The Retro Tones are Highly Recommended booked Bobby Jones and The Retro Tones for their Wedding

“Bobby Jones & The Retro Tones were there on time and set up, they were extremely professional, they communicated well, they more than accommodating (learnt a new song for our first dance), the guests loved them and their play list was just perfect for the occasion, there was nothing that we would have changed. In summary they couldn't have done any more to add to our perfect day. Ps. I should add that I am a musician and so am often a little picky or critical however their performance was outstanding, I would highly recommend them to anyone.”

Jazz has become relevant and cool again to a whole new generation since the advent of the likes of Jamie Cullum and the Bobby Swing Band are surfing the same wave keeping alive the jazz flame with a tender passion for the music they love.

Meet The Band
The Bobby Swing Band is a 3 piece as standard. The line up includes Vocals/Keyboard, Double Bass & Drums.

The band is led by Bobby Stringer an excellent young New York-trained jazz pianist with a sweet soulful voice to match. Bobby has worked as a session keyboard player for The Australian Pink Floyd Show, Candie Payne, Natasha Hamilton (Atomic Kitten) and Colin Vearncombe. He has also performed as guest keyboardist with The Zutons, whilst also having played keyboards with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra at the Echo Arena in Liverpool. He has toured extensively in Europe, Japan and North America.

Bobby's apperances include Later with Jools Holland, BBC Radio 2, Jonathan Ross show and Mark Lamarr show.

Another highlight in Bobby's career was performing for Stella McCartney’s 08 Fashion Show to an audience including Sir Paul McCartney, Yoko Ono, Olivia Harrison and Sir George Martin all seated in the front row!

The Bobby Swing Band see Bobby Stringer backed by a tight and swinging rhythm section you could only dream about:

On double bass Hugo Piers Rigg Harrison – you understand why he’s known as plain old Harry to his mates – lets his funky fingers do the talking. On drums German-born Tilo is a white hot student of the great US percussionist Keith Copeland who has created a unique style all his own.

If you require a larger line up, the Bobby Jones and The Retro Tones can include the addition of Saxophone, Trumpet and Guitar. Please see booking options or speak to an Alive Network booking agent for more details.
