Swing Band

To book Blue Harlem please contact your JLA Agent.


The swing and jump blues band have played Ronnie Scott’s and numerous festivals. As a 5-7 piece, led by striking female vocals, the set is full of feel-good hits like Hound Dog and It Don’t Mean A Thing.


One of the most high-tempo swing/jump-blues bands on the London scene, Blue Harlem are regulars at some of the capital’s most high-profile venues, including Ronnie Scott’s and The 100 Club.

They have an enviable reputation as a party band, having played for society soirees (including at Buckingham Palace), film launches (Baz Luhrman’s Australia) and at festivals, charity, private and corporate events around the world.

The group comprises a energetic and stylish line-up of singer, tenor and baritone sax, piano, double bass, drums and trumpet. Vocal star Imelda May is an alumna and the group numbers Michael Parkinson among its fans.

“Blue Harlem – the group I’m currently raving about. It’s happy music – it makes you want to dance – Highly recommended!” Michael Parkinson, BBC Radio 2
