King Candy's Great Eastern were perfect for our party and really captured the vintage atmosphere we were looking for. The band were fantastically professional, and made organisation really simple. Our guests loved the music, and we would love to book the band again.

(vintage-themed birthday party)

Way back in 1866, over 2000 miles of telegraph cable was laid under the Atlantic Ocean, opening a new era of communication for North America and Europe. Then, in 2013, named after the ship that brought those two continents together, King Candy launched his own 'Great Eastern' in celebration of the legendary transatlantic musical conversations of the 1930s, ‘the golden age of swing’.

Formed of key members from the large ensemble and stripped down to just clarinet, guitar, bass & drums, King Candy’s Great Eastern brings you titanic glamour on a small scale. Book now for three-way ticket between the charms of 1930s New York and its Charleston-based music hall, the gritty excitement of pre-bop New Orleans and then over to the European sounds of jazz minouche and the sizzling gypsy jazz of pre-war Paris.
