Old and New

We love to mix our repertoire up and perform a wide range of swing songs, but something that sets us apart are our innovative arrangements of modern popular songs in a classic 20's style.

The Hot Shoes often perform as a 4, 5, 6 or 7 piece band, but we are more in our element as the 'full throttle' 6 piece band seen in most of our videos.

The core element of our music is based on the 1920s swing style, including classic swing songs such as the Charleston, It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing and Is you is or is you ain't my baby. However, we also cater for a larger audience by performing up to date chart songs by artists such as Stievie Wonder, Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Daft Punk and many more.

As you may have noticed, we have 2 different female singers. This is because we manage a large number of bookings each year, and we like to share our performances between them. All of our singers are very talented, professional musicians, but unfortunately we are unable to guarantee specific singers for specific events. There is also the option of having 2 singers, or our popular instrumental version of the band.

The Hot Shoes was founded in 2014 by two recent graduates of the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Pete Komor and Jack Perry-Cockings.

At the same time as founding the band, we also started an agency to serve as a place to showcase our experience in performing for both corporate events and weddings, and also Jazz clubs and festivals, including London Jazz festival, Brecon Jazz festival, Langnau Jazz Nights Switzerland, The 606 Club London, Hay Festival of literature and art and countless more.

We have also had the privilege to play for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall and other prestigious events for clients such as GQ magazine.

Have a look at our website to find out more about who we are, and what we do. There are also loads of great bands to check out if you are looking for something slightly different.

What can we do for you?

We understand that every event is different, so we treat each booking individually and work with you directly to make sure that everything is 'just right' for your specific requirements.

This can mean changes to our line-up or repertoire which may affect the overall cost of the band, and we are happy to discuss this on a case by case basis with no obligation.

We can also provide recorded music before or after our performance for a small additional fee.

Feel free to give us a call if you'd like to discuss your event in more detail.
