Quando Quando


Hello! We are delighted to provide luxurious classical and vintage cabaret & jazz songs from the 30s to 50s for your special event. 

I work with Serge Pachnine or Maurizio Minardi on accordion, Dave Chamberlain on guitar or bass, and Christian Vaughan or Sean Hargreaves on piano. I trained at the Royal Academy of Music.

We perform at weddings, engagement parties, corporate events, dinners, soirées musicales, festivals, art galleries, the Houses of Parliament, people's private homes, castles, and haystacks. (They're extra. Really.) 













We are based in London but we can travel to your special event in Paris, Monte Carlo, Barcelona, Rome, Milan, New York, San Francisco, Tokyo... depending on your dates and our availability. 

Enjoy, and drop me a line about your event, or vintage music, I'd love to hear from you!
