The Rising Suns


£1,480 - £2,810

The Rising Suns take their inspiration from the iconic '20s and '30s New Orleans 'Dixieland' jazz and swing era. With a flexible band size and lineup, The Rising Suns bring it all together into a band that makes people of all ages dance, clap, tap toes, and go home with a smile. Great for dancing, great for listening, great for anyone wanting to have a good time.

The band’s repertoire is drawn largely from the small group jazz of the 20’s and 30’s with a few other interesting numbers from other eras thrown in to spice things up.

Rated 5 out of 5 on 10

I wanted to thank the team for all of their work towards our event in Shoreditch. You went above and beyond despite extremely difficult circumstances and last minute changes. I will forever be grateful, you were the best!

Ben at Stormont was great to work with and the three acts we booked through him were fantastic. Would use again and recommend highly.

Stormont provided us with our wedding band. The agency listened to what we wanted and found us a fantastic band. They managed the relationship and logistics extremely well and were flexible when Covid presented us with some challenges. The band were wonderful and went above and beyond by learning some new songs and playing through their first break. Would highly recommend both the agency and the band.

Stormont provided our entertainment and room dressing for our company Christmas Party at BAFTA, and they were totally fantastic. Mark and his team really know their stuff – communication is clear, prompt and enjoyable! I highly recommend them as a team, and all of the entertainment and dressing they supply. Absolutely could not have done it without them. Thank you!

Stormont London has provided music and entertainment for a number of our events at Tandem. The acts they have recommended have all been fabulous without exception. They are professional and always something rather special. I will continue to recommend them to our clients because I know they will do a wonderful job

Sara Hester

We work with a lot of agencies and Stormont London is without doubt one of the best. The team at Stormont are professional, efficient, punctual and above all else provide the highest quality service available in their field. It is an honour and a joy to work alongside such passionate people and we look forward to continuing our work with Stormont for many years to come.

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
