Purveyors of good-looking swing, The Redstone Quintet offer modern songs rearranged into hip-shaking, jump-jiving funk and swing.
Having honed their skills as the resident band at the BBC Club & Grange St. Paul’s they are now one of the most sought after alternative covers bands in the UK.
Think electro-swing Beyonce and retro remixed Rihanna alongside some toe-tapping tunes from Elvis and Ray Charles. What is not to boogie at?
Boasting four vocalists, saxophone, clarinet, keys, bass and drums between just five outstanding musicians The Redstone Quintet offer an impressive package. Pleasantly professional, well presented and adaptive they entertain all ages as background or foreground entertainment.
• Lead female vocals
• Lead male vocals / keys
• Saxophone / backing vocals

Choosing our wedding band was not something we took lightly! We really wanted something funky and fun, but stylish too, and you guys really did deliver. It was a joy to our build-up to know that a really professional group of artists wanted to be a part of our celebration not just turn up and perform…matching our colour scheme…ensuring you had the first dance ready…picking a set list to suit the crowd…and of course you are effortlessly cool switching from vocals to instrument, we loved it, and so did the entire room. Thanks to you all for making what is a massive part of our day all we hoped! We are still dancing.
