The Fabulous Highly Acclaimed Debonaires Jump Jive Swinging Little Big BandLive Music for Vintage Weddings and Civil CeremoniesThe Debonaires would love to join you on your big day. Vintage themed weddings / civil ceremonies are great fun and so memorable.

For a stylish wedding with a difference, the Debonaires with their talented vocalists, provide that sophisticated vintage sound and atmosphere, keeping the dance floor jumping and swinging, as we emulate the great music from the 20's, 30’s 40’s & 50’s, a style of music still popularized today by artistes such as Caro Emerald, Michael Buble, Jamie Cullum & Robbie Williams. To enjoy our music, you don’t have to know how to dance, just how to have a good time!

If there is a special tune you both share, tell Max what it is, and he will make a special musical arrangement for the band to play for you. A lovely and traditional way to start the dancing.

References available of course.

Live Music for Vintage Events and FestivalsThey say nostalgia is not what it used to be, but the burgeoning retro / vintage scene in the UK is alive and kicking. Dance kicks that is!

Trumpet playing Band Leader Max Debon brings you his swinging little big band and talented vocalists to help you Lindy Hop, Jive, Jump and Swing your way back to the 30’s 40’s & 50’s.

The Debonaires are a popular attraction at vintage festivals and commemorative events, recreating the swinging sounds of Benny Goodman, Glenn Miller, Louis Jordan and Duke Ellington to name a few.

Live Music for Corporate and Formal EventsThe Debonaires are the ideal setting for your formal function, be it a Civic Reception, a Corporate Opening, or Fundraising Event. At your black tie dinner the Debonaires provide a large helping of classic vintage style whilst at the same time ensuring that all your guests enjoy themselves as we keep the dance floor jumping and swinging, emulating the great bands from the 20's, 30’s 40’s & 50’s

If your organisation has a special tune or anthem you would like performing at your event, Max would be very happy to make a special musical arrangement for you to ensure the event is tailored to your specific requirements.

We hope you enjoy our website. We hope you will stay and take a look at all our other web pages where you can find out all about us and see and hear us.

“ I wanted to follow up on your wedding performance on the 24th November. Your band's performance was excellent and everyone had a wonderful time; I can't tell you how many people came up to me to ask where we found you and how good they said you all were. As a 'small' band you put out a 'big band sound', witness the crowded dance floor. ”

We have had so many lovely comments from guests. We really appreciated your professionalism on the day and beforehand in fitting round our ever changing plans and song preferences for the day.

“ We gave a great reception to the Debonaires. - as this 'small big band' reminded us of Duke, Glenn, Woody and others, and singer Sarah did the same for such as Ella, Peggy and Marilyn. Absolutely everything went with such a swing. ”
