The Bandits are a Cardiff-based jazz group, performing sophisticated music from all eras of jazz and even some personalised interpretations of modern popular songs.
We take huge delight in surprising the audience with jazz covers of some well-known pop songs and TV themes, sometimes completely improvised on the spot! But if that’s not quite what you are looking for, we also have a catalogue of over 250 jazz standards to dress your evening in style.
Although we market ourselves as a jazz group, we also play blues, funk and latin. If you want something traditional, different and/or interesting, book The Bandits!
They frequently appear at various venues in South Wales, including The Dead Canary and Moonshine at Lab22, as well as for weddings and private parties in the region.
The members are Jack McDougal (Sax/Vocals), Matthew Poad (Piano/Vocals) and Iori Haugen (Drums/Vocals).
So if you're looking for an outstanding professional jazz trio in South Wales or the surrounding English counties of Gloucestershire, Somerset or Wiltshire, get in touch with The Bandits.
