We love the Festival of Chichester.  Jazz Smugglers have become one of the famous FESTIVAL BANDS in SUSSEX. The JAZZ SMUGGLERS EVENTS are all different. Sometimes the music is full of Gershwin and Cole Porter. At other times we are playing songs loved by Jazz Club patrons.

We play mainly in CHICHESTER, WEST SUSSEX, which is close to BOGNOR for LIVE JAZZ, but we also work as a live JAZZ BAND in WORTHING, and as a JAZZ BAND in PORTSMOUTH,  There are not many JAZZ BANDS IN CHICHESTER, there are one or two live BANDS IN BOGNOR, more BANDS IN WORTHING and even more BANDS IN PORTSMOUTH.

There are many JAZZ BANDS IN EAST SUSSEX but far fewer JAZZ BANDS IN WEST SUSSEX. If you want soft romantic music for WEDDING RECEPTIONS SUSSEX. or a LIVE JAZZ TRIO at your WEDDING or PRIVATE PARTY as background music book us please.

A nice lady said

“I’m really scared of losing money, we need these funds for our hall”

We replied

“Two things. First, we have never lost money for anyone at a gig. If you don’t cover your costs, then provided that you do the promotion, then we will guarantee that you do not make a loss.  The band will take it out of their fees. Is that ok for you?”


We don’t do it just for the money, we do it because we enjoy it. But payment for us means respect.
