Rob James Band / Trio / Duo Rob James Band Resume

      The Rob James Band was formed in 2008 and since then they have performed over 300 gigs ranging from public performances in international hotels and restaurants to private weddings and corporate functions.

Their repertoire of over 300 songs covers a wide range of musical styles from Jazz, Rat Pack Swing, Soul, Blues, Rock n Roll, 1930s Swing, Pop, Acoustic Roots and Latin.

The band is led by singer and musician Rob James and is available for hire in formats from duo to quintet, the most popular being the Rob James Trio which performs sophisticated music perfect for lounges and restaurants.

Rob James uses a pool of professional musicians to form the line up to meet the bookings requirement. The line-up is determined by the musician's availability and nature of work offered. All the musicians are comparable in ability and style so regardless of line-up; consistency in musical quality and style is guaranteed.

This flexibility makes long term contract bookings highly suitable due to the option of rotation the accompanying musicians monthly without compromising performance quality.

Rob James Band clients and venues have ranged from the prestigious Kings Hall at Cambridge University, Cambridge University Judge Business School, Cambridge University Society Balls and the Cambridge Lindy Hop Dance Society Events. The Rob James Trio has also enjoyed an 18 month residency at Cambridge's famed Chinese restaurant and Jazz music venue the “Charlie Chan”.

Musicians within the band have studied at The Royal College of Music, Goldsmiths College and Cambridge University, played venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, Ronnie Scott's and the Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho, London, performed in Europe and Dubai as well as on the QE2 and Thomson Cruises.
