About Rhythm in Blues
Rhythm in Blues were formed in 2009 by our MD Paul Wheeler who happens to have the ability to play piano, alto and soprano Saxaphone. Paul decided to team up with lead singer Adam and create swing band that stands out from any other. Together they decided to put the band in bright blue suits to give it a slight new Orleans feel with a modern twist and then give the client the option of different front singers. It didn't take long at all calling on some amazing musicians the band was formed in under a day. The hardest thing to decide was the set list, how do you choose what songs to play when there isn't a bad one in the mix.

Rhythm in Blues have three main line ups:

5 piece mellow swing band
