Chris & The Charlestoners is an entertaining Jazz Trio featuring saxman and crooner Chris Garratt. Ably supported by guitar and banjo specialist “Smiler” Bob King, and Anthony Powell on keyboard/piano, this Band plays upbeat jazz classics, songs from the 1920s and 1930s especially, and novelty numbers – ideal for Special Occasions and Party fun.


Chris & The Charlestoners also specialise on strict-tempo tunes ideal for Tea Dances. Recreating the sweet sounds of the Dance Band era and dance music from the 1920s and 30s, this Band play a varied selection of smooth romantic melodies, swinging Latin tunes and roaring hot jazz which would add a touch of elegant nostalgia to any Party or Special Occasion. Their music would be ideal in top hotels and marquees where a sense of style is required to match our white jackets !


We have provided Tea Dances at the National Trust’s Knightshayes Court, and have entertained on several occasions on boat trips and for charity events. Once you hear us, you will want to request a tune to keep you up and dancing !
