Tad Newton's Jazz Friends
Tad Newton's Jazz Friends are now established as one of the most popular groups on the UK and international jazz entertainment scene

The Jazz Friends specialise in lively always swinging jazz. Within this framework also reside the sounds of Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington and Count Basie making the band ideal for concerts, clubs, dances, festivals, riverboat shuffles or indeed functions where happy, lively music is required. Whilst concentrating on the jazz sounds of the 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's, the Jazz Friends do not resign themselves to re-runs of 'golden oldies' and can combine their traditional repertoire with more contemporary blues material.

The band features within its show, a flexibility of approach enabling it to spotlight delightful interludes of vocals, novelties, rhythm and blues, as well as fine solos by its respected and noted individual musicians.
