Matthew’s classic tribute to the timeless songs of yesteryear is the perfect
accompaniment to any vintage events such as fayers, heritage railways, museums and WWII societies such as at Didcot Railway Centre, Mizens Railway and On-Parade Enthusiasts Group.
He is highly trained and experienced in playing the music of the 1910s – 1950s,
including songs by George Formby, Vera Lynn, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Glenn Miller, Bill Hailey, Jackie Wilson and many more from early jazz, dixieland, big band and rock ‘n’ roll.
The set-list will be customised to the specific time era that your event captures. Matthew’s compact and flexible set up allows him to roam freely around the venue or train carriage, or to stay in one spot.
“…very, very entertaining”Graham Steel, 2019
