Mad Dog & The Sophisticats.
Live Jazz Band.


Royal Ascot

Martin Mad Dog Jones has performed at some of the UK’s Top Jazz Events. Their delicious music has been played at many International Jazz Festivals and Martin’s expert trumpet playing has been heard on regular occasions in the Top Jazz establishments in London and Paris. He is a warm, zany character with a lovely sense of humour, and audiences are immediately relaxed in the company of this wonderfully talented band. They are delightfully attired in red, white and blue waistcoats, or in the more formal black tie. It has been said that if you can’t enjoy yourself when Mad Dog Jones is around, you should definitely seek medical help.

If you are holding a wedding reception and would like something less formal than the tradition string quartet, then this lovely live jazz band will create the perfect atmosphere for your special celebration. The band were asked by the Royal Ascot Company to perform for the whole week at the recent Royal Ascot Horse Racing Extravaganza and they have also supplied music at the residence of Lord Louis Mountbatton. For private functions Martin and his Sophisticats can perform a stunningly popular mobile, trad jazz reception set, creating a happy, warm welcome for your guests, 'breaking the ice' on their arrival. As they are an acoustic, 'mobile' outfit they can mingle and keep everyone entertained whilst photographs are taken and during your pre-dinner drinks.
Mad Dog

When the live jazz band is asked to supply background music during the meal, they will change the instruments that they play.

They use more mellow instruments at this time and the banjo player will switch to an acoustic guitar and Mad Dog often switches to the flugelhorn. The band also changes into black tie. Whilst performing as guests are eating, the most important thing is to ensure that conversation is not prohibited and these experienced musicians will always ensure that their music is played at the right volume for you and your guests. With additional members added for an evening dance, his riotous musicians turn into Mad Dog's Little Big Band - a function band full of zany musicians who will set the place alight and supply brilliant swing music for you to dance to.
