ABOUT US

The Man Overboard Quintet add their own stamp to a repertoire of tunes made famous by the likes of Billie Holiday, Django Reinhardt, the Mills Brothers, Duke Ellington and Fats Waller. The chemistry between these superb musicians and their audience makes every performance a magical occasion.

The Man Overboard Quintet has played gigs at numerous prestigious venues, and has played at many functions, such as weddings and corporate events.

The Man Overboard Quintet were featured in BBC3’s “Being Human” (5th series, 6th episode), and have appeared several times on BBC Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’.

The Man Overboard Quintet recorded their first album in September 2012 at Champs Hill studios, releasing it in July 2013. Their second album, ‘Down in the Deep Deep Blue’, was also recorded at Champs Hill and was released in August 2015.
