The Middlesbrough Jazz and Blues Orchestra have quickly acquired a reputation as one of Teesside’s outstanding big bands, in demand for everything from bandstand concerts to weddings to corporate events.


Founded in 2005 by leading jazz trombonist Andrew Kerensky, MJBO is a lively collaboration of musicians living in the Tees Valley area, and plays a range of music in the tradition of the great swing bands - from Jazz, Jive, Swing, Gospel , Soul to Latin, Funk, Be-bop and Blues.


The repertoire being from the 1940’s to contemporary tunes such as Adele’s Skyfall or Black Eye Peas ‘I got a feeling’ or even Kraftwerk’s ‘The Model’.


As Irving Berlin once said, "It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that swing!" and that swing is what the MJBO brings.
