For nearly 15 years Blue Harlem have been regarded as one of the top swing/jump-blues bands on the London scene. They have become regular favourites at venues such as the world famous Ronnie Scott’s, The100 Club, The Pigalle Club and Jitterbugs.

They also enjoy an International reputation - 2007 found them
launching the 4th International Film Festival of Dubai and in 2008,
they were personally invited by Baz Luhrmann to perform for the
launch of his 1940’s blockbuster movie ‘Australia’.

Blue Harlem also regularly perform abroad: one of the highlights
of the past two Summers being sell-out tours of Spanish Festivals.
They have also played for the European Film Festival in Dresden,
as well as jazz festivals in Norway, Belgium and Germany. We’ll be
appearing at Swingshoes’ Swingball in Copenhagen on 3rd February.

They have been invited on three separate occasions to perform at
Highgrove House charity balls for the Prince’s Trust. They have an
enviable reputation as a party band, having played for society soirees all over the UK - including Buckingham Palace, Annabel’s, The Sands Venue and Burgh Island.

Blue Harlem launched the career of rising star Imelda May, and are now proud to feature as their vocalist the sensational Sophie Shaw. Blue Harlem is led by Al Nicholls on Tenor Sax and features Paul Eldridge on Piano, Sandy Burnett on Double Bass, Sam Brown on Drums, Gethin Liddington on trumpet and Horace Cardew on Baritone Sax.

    Saw these guys live at Komedia in Brighton, best live band I have ever seen. No Contest. Even got to show my adoration as all the band members would just wander up to the bar during breaks, so cool.
