Since putting the band together five years ago, Jeff Williams has been delighted at the amazing response to the Swamp Dogs. In this time the band have performed their show in theatres, most of the premier live music venues in London, have worked in Burlesque, Clubs and countless private events, both at home and on the continent. The joyful, infectious mixture of Soul, Jazz, Funk, Blues and Boogie is met with roars of approval wherever and whenever they perform.

Paul Miller Keyboards and vocals. A vocalist of enormous emotion and joy, Paul Millers talents have taken him all round the world. A stalwart of the London live music scene and composer of film, Alan Partridge fans may recognise him as one half of the Travel Tavern duo!

Manel Alvarez Bass. Since arriving in London from Barcelona five years ago, Manel has established himself as a bass player of top quality and much in demand by London's top bands and artists. 

Dan Redding Guitar. A guitarist and arranger of some repute and a performer of great intensity, Dan is equally at home playing Soul, Jazz, Blues and Rock. Something he gets to do every time he comes out on stage with the band! 

Jono Lee. A fine drummer with a deft touch, Jono Lee has crossed the world many times over playing some of the largest live venues on the planet. Great news for the band that he is concentrating his efforts more and more back in London and the South East!

Titch Walker Trumpet. A stylistic flexibility is the key to performing the Swamp Dog repertoire and Titch Walker has it in spades! Wether giving us a Louis Armstrong tribute or digging in on a funk track, Tich delivers the goods!   

Jeff Williams Trombone and Vocals. Like everyone else in the band Jeff has played in just about every musical situation apart from classical! Performing live and entertaining a club audience is his greatest pleasure.   







Wood’s most recent album, a mixture of new originals and classic soul/blues/r&b songs entitled “Tomorrow Night”, was released in November 2018.  “Privacy Policy”, an organ trio album with guitarist Chris Allard and drummer Ralph Salmins, will be released later this year.

“Remember the first time you heard Dylan, or Springsteen, or Costello, or Waits?  Charlie Wood delivers that same jolt.” ~ JAZZ TIMES

“Charlie Wood embodies hepcat worldliness and barroom empathy; he’s got style but also the wisdom that gives it heftiness.” ~ JAZZ REVIEW

Born and raised in Memphis, TN, Charlie headed down the Mississippi to New Orleans at seventeen, spending a few formative years soaking up the music and culture of the Big Easy and playing keys with local favourites like Charmaine Neville.  He returned to Memphis in his early twenties to join the band of legendary blues guitarist Albert King, with whom he toured the US and Europe.

Having established a musical reputation for himself, Charlie took up a long-standing residency with his Hammond organ trio at King's Palace on Beale Street.  The gig became known to touring musicians and locals alike, attracting impromptu sit-ins from B.B. King, Georgie Fame, Joey DeFrancesco, George Coleman, Mulgrew Miller, Alvin Batiste, and many others.

In October 2014, Wood became the 136th recipient of a Brass Note on Beale Street, the Memphis equivalent of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Other recipients include such musical luminaries as Elvis Presley, Al Green, and Isaac Hayes.

Wood is an accomplished and prolific singer/songwriter with numerous original releases under his belt, including "Southbound" and "Who I Am" on Ben Sidran's GoJazz label and "Flutter and Wow" on Memphis-based Archer Records.  His original song “Promised Land” won the 2016 U.S.A Songwriting Competition, Jazz category.
