Trombone, Trumpet, Clarinet, Banjo, Sousaphone and we all sing!

Night Jar’s infectious foot-stomping live shows have taken the London vintage scene by storm, quickly establishing them as the band that most accurately evokes the bold, brassy, blues-infused spirit of 1920s New Orleans.

Equally at home wowing rapturous crowds at London venues like The Ditch and Wilton’s Music Hall or adding stylishly toe-tapping vintage sounds to a wedding celebration or prohibition-era spirit to a Great Gatsby party, The band also appear in the short movie Melvin (2015), shot at the famous Pinewood Studios.


The band are also very popular as a London and South Funeral band too.
