The Boardwalk Brass Band are inspired by the New Orleans brass band tradition but also incorporate influences from Jamaican, Eastern European, funk, Latin, gospel, jazz – all tied together with a sense of humour and cheeky fun.

Sousaphone player Graham put the The Boardwalk Brass Band together in 2007, surrounding himself with a collection of highly versatile jazz musicians who could take a melody and turn it into an arrangement on the spot.

The band is all about spontaneity, energy, interaction and fun. Described as “totally impossible not to enjoy”, The Boardwalk Brass Band have been inspiring people of all ages and tastes at clubs, arts centres and festivals across the UK.


The band plays their own arrangements of popular songs, classic New Orleans repertoire, interpretations of music from other genres as well as songs composed by members of the band.

For obvious reasons, events hosted at Abbey Road Studios always have music at their heart and our clients trust us to help them find the perfect entertainment that befits the legendary musical history of the Studios.

Stormont London are our trusted entertainment supplier, not just because of the incredibly reliable and professional service they provide behind the scenes, but also because of the variety and sheer talent of their brilliant roster of musicians who always deliver for us. We have worked with Stormont for many years now and look forward to continuing to do so for many years to come.

I’d have no hesitation in recommending Stormont London to any event professional or company looking for acts either internally or on behalf of clients.

Stormont were the primary supplier for music and entertainment at The Roof Gardens and as such I have worked with the agency on a number of social, corporate and internal events.
Mark and his team are not only the most knowledgable and organised supplier I have worked with in the run up to events but also the most efficient and professional on the event day itself.

Each act I have booked through them have been talented, outstanding and fit the exact brief given to them. Stormont’s communication and attention to detail throughout the entire planning process is faultless making me feel confident and at ease when booking them on behalf of my clients. I cannot recommend them highly enough as a supplier as their care and patience is simply unrivalled.

I can thoroughly recommend working with Stormont.

I have always found them to be extremely helpful, professional and reliable. They always come back to requests very promptly and keep us well informed what they are working on for us and when they will have a proposal to us.

We quite often challenge them with last minute requests and they have always come through for us with multiple options for our clients to choose from.

On the day of the event the whole team have always been wonderful to work with and go beyond their immediate role to make sure that the whole event is a success. I look forward to events when I know that Stormont are going to be involved!

Stormont London have been an absolute joy to have brought onto our approved suppliers list last year for 2017.

They have set themselves above the rest of other entertainment suppliers in their faultless ability to find the perfect fit for our diverse range of clients individual brief and needs.

They are not only incredibly friendly and professional to work with but ignite a genuine enthusiasm for all involved for each event. We are delighted to be working with them and cannot recommend this highly talented company enough

Hannah Luffman

We’ve worked with Stormont several times now and they are hands down the best entertainment agency we’ve found. They have a great roster of talent, all of which are a credit to the agency. Stormont is so helpful with sourcing the best man, woman or group for the job. On top of that they are very communicative which makes it much easier to organise those finer details. Highly recommend working with them.

It’s been a pleasure to deal with Stormont for our corporate event. The quality of the communications, speed and professionalism of dealing with them was matched by the fantastic acts they sourced. We loved the Singing Waiters and superb DJ. Thanks guys, we’ll be using you again!
