Queertet brings together a collection of London's finest LGBTQI+ musicians to celebrate everything queer about the world of jazz music!
Headed by award winning young saxophonist Tom Smith, Queertet features original material and the music of celebrated LGBTQI+ musicians and composers throughout history such as Billy Strayhorn, Ma Rainey, Cole Porter and Gary Burton. Queertet performed extensively during Pride 2018, touring London and selling out two shows at Ronnie Scott’s with Ian Shaw, Julian Clary and Sharon D. Clarke. They have also performed at venues such as Pizza Express Soho, the Elgar Room at the Royal Albert Hall, and at Clapham Omnibus each year as part of their LGBTQI+ Festival 96.
“Whether playing the standards songbook or their accomplished originals, the Queertet bring discerning playing, individuality and swinging group dynamics, with great charm and likeableness” – London Jazz News
