The Jive Doctors band members

Sammy Jagelman has been with The Jive Doctors from the very beginning. As Lead Singer, they take on quite a lot of responsibility, from fine-tuning the musical arrangements to assisting other bandmates with perfecting their performances.

Jake is truly a shining star. Crowds always love seeing them in full performance mode, and the band couldn’t be happier to have such an incredible Drummer up on stage and in the studio with them.

A band wouldn't be complete without its Guitarist, and The Jive Doctors couldn’t have asked for a better one than the talented Samuel Shute. They play an instrumental role in the success and musical progression of the band.

Having a sax on stage is great! But having Andy Heyes playing it is amazing. This musician fully knows how to get a crowd pumping with his blistering solos and tasteful licks Andy adds a sparkle to The Jive Doctors that most other bands do not have.

Mr Bass himself! Olly has played all over the world and brings all that experience with him to The Jive Doctors. Olly is a founding member of the band and is an invaluable asset, on stage, in practice and when arranging all the bands new material.

The newest member of the band is Mr Davies. His great stage presence and mastery of his instrument made him an instant success with the rest of the Doctors. Dex is always searching to find the right sound and the best way to connect with the audience.
