ABOUT US

Ruby & The Dukes play bouncing Jazz, fast and hard-hitting '50s R&B, Rock 'n' Roll and Swing to get their audiences jumping up and [url hidden] just the occasional Torch song for smooching....

Ruby & The Dukes started playing together at the beginning of 2016 and gigging almost immediately, playing private functions and 'open' gigs in pubs and clubs all over London and beyond. Ruby has been singing in semi-pro bands for over ten years and The Dukes, (Chris, Davide and Mac), are all seasoned players with years (more than we care to admit to...) of experience. The idea behind this band was to play dance music from the '50s, some of which our audiences would know and others we felt were great songs but were not so well known but which our audiences never fail to dance to. The only thing that drives our song choices is whether they'll get people up and dancing...

We can add brass and keys as required as well as DJ sets in between performances if required.
