Roger Beaujolais started playing vibraphone aged 24, and is completely self-taught. He is a prolific writer with over 250 tunes recorded & released over the years. Originally gained recognition with 80’s jump jive favourites The Chevalier Brothers (also featuring Ray Gelato) whose musicianship & anarchic brand of humour took them all over the world.

He has played alongside many of the top jazz musicians in the UK including Jim Mullen, Denys Baptiste, Alan Barnes, Tony Kofi, Tommaso Starace, and many more.

Gareth Williams first got noticed when he was the keyboard player/MD for jazz hip-hop band Us3. He has since worked as pianist/MD for acclaimed jazz singer Claire Martin (several times winner of the British Jazz Singer of the Year awards).

Simon Thorpe is one of Britain’s most popular bass players, well known for his great sound, melodic solos & infectious swing feel. Milo Fell has played with most of the top jazz musicians in the UK & for many years has been the drummer for the Tim Whitehead and Tony Woods bands. He has also performed with The Cinematic Orchestra.
