Performance information


The Tie Tailors can offer a range of performance options from a simple trio to a swingin' 7-piece. The band comprise:

  • Female vocalist (although most of the guys sing too!)
  • Clarinet
  • Trumpet and / or Trombone
  • Guitar
  • Piano
  • Double bass
  • Drums and percussion


Altough their sound is always eclectic and acoustic the band can provide their own small PA suitable for medium crows of up to 150. For larger occasions we often bring in a larger system for them.


The band normally perform 2 x 60 minute or 3 x 40 minute sets which can vary in dynamics and tempo to suit your tastes.

“Righteously retro yet youthful: traditional jazzers who dive back to prohibition-era speakeasies for inspiration. Playing clarinet/trumpet/guitar-led Dixieland hits from Waller, Ellington and Basie with zeal!”

— Time Out

“We saw the Trouser Tie Tailors perform at a Black Cotton Club ball and we fell in love with their energy and style. We asked them to perform at our wedding and we could not have made a better choice. What a hoot we all had, I have never seen such a great age range of people prancing around in glee! Thank you so much. ”

— Rosetta Bailiff, Private Client
