BLUE HARLEM were formed by tenor sax and arranger Al Nicholls in 1996 and soon came to be widely regarded as one of the top swing/jump-blues bands on the London scene and beyond. Al served his time in bands such as the legendary Big Town Playboys, Ray Gelato’s Giants and King Pleasure and the Biscuit Boys. In a world of low-energy soundalikes, this is a group of Olympian musicians with enough wattage to light up Broadway on a busy night. Blue Harlem launched the career of rising star Imelda May, and are now proud to feature as their vocalist the sensational Sophie Shaw. They are long time regular favourites at many London venues such as the world-famous Ronnie Scott’s, The 100 Club, Jitterbugs, Soho’s Pizza-Express and The Blues Kitchen. The band also performs regularly abroad, having appeared at festivals from Norway to Dubai, and many stops in-between. “The Group I’m currently raving about - it’s happy music that makes you want to dance!” Michael Parkinson BBC radio 2 “This experienced outfit bring an intelligence and sophistication to the art of combining jazz and rhythm and blues that was prevalent on America’s west coast of the 1940s and early 1950s” Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club magazine “Blue Harlem have a devastating reputation on the live circuit and a number of high profile admirers….they are one of the best party bands around” Nico Mead TNT Magazine "Solid swing and great arrangements from this stylish up-town band - they kept the dance floor packed and we will definitely want them back" Simon Selmon, London Swing Dance Society
