About Us


Formed in 2013 from a group of musician friends, and originally rehearsing in our trumpeter's stable yard (complete with equine audience!), The Stable Yard Jazz Band is an eight-piece boutique vintage ensemble based in Wiltshire but playing all over the UK.

We play authentic jazz and swing from the Roaring '20s to the Fabulous '50s for events from birthday parties, anniversaries and weddings to corporate functions, Gatsby nights, festivals and garden parties.

All our musicians are formally trained and highly experienced in playing a range of musical styles with a variety of bands. Our standard line-up consists of clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, string bass, piano and drums with optional vocals, although we can provide smaller groups if space is an issue.


We firmly believe that vintage jazz is good for the soul, and our aim is to play music that we love and that makes people smile – it’s fun, infectious and great to dance to!
