More information about The Dapper Chaps

The group, which consists of trumpet, guitar/vocals and double bass, regularly performs all over the UK, overseas and at the hottest London jazz venues including the legendary Ronnie Scotts, 606 Jazz Club, The Jazz Cafe, Pizza Express Jazz Club and at Prohibition era/Great Gatsby-themed swing events.

The band's vintage look and sound allows them to transport your guests to a different age, providing a sophisticated backdrop whilst people chat, eat and dance!

Being fully acoustic allows the trio to roam: playing to smaller groups of guests if they are booked through dinner, or they can just set up in a corner and swing.

Between them, the musicians have picked up several prestigious Jazz awards and backed some of the biggest names in pop on their UK appearances on world tours.

A sample set list is provided below, but the group has a vast repertoire and is happy to take special requests as well.

Although principally a trio, the group can often increase in size where required for your event, e.g. to a 5-piece band.

"Just a quick note to say excellent choice with the Dapper Chaps. We were blessed with a wonderful sunny day and the band surpassed themselves. I hope they enjoyed the event as much as we did. Your assistance was very much appreciated and we have passed on your details to our guests. With kindest regards, Marrion Jolly (nee Kaye)."

"We had a great party. Although we struggled to get people closer to the band, that's because they were performing in a big outdoor space. We still think the Dapper Chaps added great value to our party. Especially for setting the mood in the beginning of the party. Really appreciate it! Thank you a lot for making the success of this event."

"I have known Mark personally for many years and have only ever known him to put 100% into every aspect of his music career so when my wife and I started to plan our big day, I knew that his passion and skill would bring something really special and unique to the day. We had the swing trio perform at our wedding and the guys were fantastic! Really set the mood for the afternoon whilst we were having the photos taken. The set list that Mark put together was perfect and really encompassed the feel of the day. Would highly recommend Mark and his swing trio for any event."
