Swing that Music

‘Music from the ’20s and ’30s performed at its best. I loved it!’

John Suchet, Classic FM

‘It has been my great pleasure to work with Tony when he performs in New York City. I love his great singing and the style in which he sings and entertains,  bringing back the spirit and fun of the 1920s, 30s and 40s.  Tony has appeared with my band – the Nighthawks at Sophia’s, the  Iguana and at Birdland.  Tony Jacobs and his Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra is one of our top vintage groups we have today !’

Grammy Award Winning Vince Giordano and star of ‘There’s A Future In The Past’

‘Its approach to the wonderful music of the 1920s and ’30s is fresh and new and the band is blessed in having world-class musicians who evidently love playing in this style. I whole-heartedly recommend the superb Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra – a band that would hugely enhance any Festival in any setting.’

Alan Caunce, Artistic Director Fishguard International Music Festival (2007-2013)


‘What is most appealing and enjoyable about the TJO is that the musicians clearly love this music and communicate that to the audience in spades. Without a trace of pastiche or parody, this is the music of the ’20s and ’30s brought to life with panache and passion. Tony Jacobs is the perfect front man: his ability to impart his deep knowledge of the music with charm and wit is matched by his stylish vocals. Backed up by the delightful voice and personality of Catherine Sykes, the ideal band singer, and the cream of British jazz and big band musicians, the Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra offers superb musical entertainment of world-class standard.’

Gerry Stonestreet, Editor, In Tune International

‘Tony Jacobs’ wonderful Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra stormed Keswick’s Theatre By The Lake as part of the  pre-Jazz Festival concert series. Authentic and fresh, this band of superb musicians and singers prove that, the music of the 1920s and 1930s by composers such as Irving Berlin, George Gershwin and Cole Porter can, in the right hands, sound newly-minted. Little wonder the capacity audience was clamouring for more!’
