The Hipcats are  musicians with years of experience but who bring an exciting and contemporary feel to classic jazz and swing music.

The band are jazz and swing specialists but also love playing the great music that has flowed from this which includes latin grooves, funk & soul.  Check out the song list for favourite tunes or get in touch to find out more.

They band all worked with other great musicians or performed at major events.   These include The American Museum's 50th birthday celebrations, Marlborough and Cheltenham Jazz Festivals, the Miri International Jazz Festival and Glastonbury Festival a number of times.  Other clients have included Brasserie Blanc (for Raymond Blanc), Harvey Nichols, Thistle Hotels and Hotel du Vin.

There are always at least two of each instrument available with the aim that we can always put the best line-up together for your event, sometimes even at relatively short notice.

Typical line-ups include:

- Solo piano

- Vocals and piano - lounge-style

- Instrumental line-ups

- Classic trio with double bass

- Quartet with drums, saxophone or trumpet

- The classic quintet - great for dancing
