Jivin’ Miss Daisy is a professional band specialising in vintage music from the era of swing, jazz and jive.
Bass player Simon Thorpe established Jivin' Miss Daisy in 1999. Since then the band has gone from strength to strength - whether performing at jazz clubs or festivals, weddings or corporate events, you can be sure Jivin' Miss Daisy will have the audience dancing, partying or just singing along. JMD play your choice of classic songs from Gershwin, Cole Porter and Ellington through to Nat King Cole and Ray Charles. Simon can help you choose the line-up you need - from an intimate trio or quartet up to an exciting nine-piece orchestra. For your special event you can build a playlist, or of course you are welcome to leave it to the band!
