Mad Yella
Mad Yella are the definitive story of originality and hard work reaping results. This Kent-based band are a joy to work with, listen to and watch. Their honesty and sublime sound is something to behold and cheer on as their careers continue to develop, much to their constant astonishment!

It’s a wonderful thing to see these cats grow. This is the New Jazz-Funk Generation

After a superb inaugural performing year in 2019, Mad Yella return to London in 2020. The band performed their first ever headline gig at an esteemed London Jazz club in 2019 before going on to share stages and lineups with UK soul & jazz giants such as Incognito, Light of the World, Omar, Beverly Knight, Theon Cross and Soweto Kinch. In the autumn of 2019 Mad Yella were invited to support Tony Momrelle before their own headliner at the EFG London Jazz Festival, incredible highlights for Mad Yella’s first year in performing. Following their new releases in 2020 Mad Yella have hit the radio airwaves across the world. Look forward to a spine-tingling performance of original music with wonderful jazz-funk and Neo Soul grooves that have inspired their unique sound. The new jazz-funk generation have arrived! 

"The brilliant Mad Yella. Real instruments being played by real musicians. I hope that 2020 is going to be their year, they deserve it" Paul Miller BBC

Expect a Soul Jazz sensation from the New Jazz-Funk Generation!

Ray Estaire 
Surging from London’s bustling Jazz scene, singer, songwriter, composer, and arranger Ray Estaire has risen to the forefront with her triple octave vocal talent. With a background of Jamaican, Grenadian, and Scottish ancestry, Estaire possesses a deep, rich tone reminiscent of the late Sarah Vaughan. Leading her brand new sextet with a wise conviction she moves seamlessly between cool ballads, swinging standards, and original songs from her greatly anticipated debut album
