Various Palace Avenue line ups regularly perform as the main house bands of the 1940s ‘Blitz Party’ and 1920s ‘Prohibition’, the two largest and most high profile and lavish big stage vintage events held every few months in London by Bourne & Hollingsworth.

  1. Blitz Party: theblitzparty.com
  2. Prohibition: prohibition1920s.com

Away from the excitement of the big stage, the musicians of Palace Avenue Swing are also just as at home in the more informal setting of a jazz club or cocktail bar, often playing in a smaller, more acoustic line up. We also perform regularly at the New Orleans-themed ‘Blues Kitchens’ in London where the party goes late and we often have guests dropping by to join the fun.
