About The Fitzroy Six
We're a fantastically energetic function band whose speciality is getting everyone in the room on their feet and dancing. Since 2007 we've played soul, swing, funk, motown and jazz at weddings, parties and corporate events.
A group of talented musicians, we've been lucky enough to have entertained crowds across the world, from our base in London (UK) to Washington D.C., New York, Boston, Edinburgh, Amsterdam and Istanbul, including such prestigious venues as The IndigO2 Arena, Royal Festival Hall, numerous Covent Garden and Park Lane venues including The Marriott, The Hilton, The Dorchester and The Langham, London superclub SEOne and even the iconic BT Tower.
Chris Jamieson, vocalist / trumpeter
Having been lucky enough to tour widely with various musical groups over the years, including the U.S., parts of Europe and a string of sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Chris has a strong, soulful voice and a versatile range.
Phil Williams, saxophonist
Among the finest saxophone players available in London today, Phil is the most recent addition to The Fitzroy Six. He is an extraordinarily versatile player, and in particular his funk solos have to be heard to be believed.
Michael Cearns, keyboards
Michael is a jazz pianist of quite phenomenal skill. This is, no doubt, partly a consequence of his medical training: his complex chords are struck with surgical precision, and he blends musical cadences with a mastery found elsewhere only in pharmaceutical dispensaries.
James Pallister, guitarist
Mexican by birth, James' style is heavily influenced by his Tyneside upbringing. While rock is his first love, his fresh licks are just as much at home on our high-energy funk and soul numbers.
Jim McKeane, bassist
Originally from Worcestershire, Jim is a seasoned bassist and earned his stripes in the recording studio as well as in live settings. No stranger to slap bass, he provides the rock-solid basslines which never fail to make people say "let's dance!"
Huw Jeremy, drummer
Prior to The Fitzroy Six, Huw played in a number of jazz, funk and rock outfits and has performed in venues across the UK, achieving notable success at the national level. His drumming idol is Poogie Bell, whose influence really shines through when it's time for a big drum solo.
