Dance the night away during your private charter cruise….

We have put together a carefully selected list of professional DJs and live bands to entertain you and your guests during your private cruise on the River Dee. We hope that you will find a range of entertainment options to suit most tastes.

"Go Country" 60s Band

Shuffle Band


We both have many years experience playing as professional jazz musicians throughout the UK and Europe (Germany, Netherlands, France, Scandinavia).

Also Rae has the additional honour of not just playing in the Middle East but performed his own shows on Bahrain National Television.

We decided to form a “Duo” originally for our own enjoyment, playing Country and Western and 60’s Pop music, and now find there is a large audience who enjoy what we do and the way we do it.

We play live music, no tapes or any other form of specialist backing.

Furthermore we are not restricted to playing only as a Duo; if there is a need we can bring in other musicians to expand the band to suit whatever is required.

The Music We Play Includes: 

          Country & Western: Hank Williams, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash & many others.

          Rock & Roll: Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis Presley, Beatles, etc.

          Swing: We use the American Song book of Standards; covers all popular numbers.

For additional fun we can stray into a short medley of Folk/Irish Jig.

We Think We Are:

The ideal Duo for; Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays and other special events.


£220 (based on a minimum 3 hour cruise).


The "Peninsula Jazzmen"

Peninsula Jazzmen


Established in 1984, the Peninsula Jazzmen laid their first claim to fame by playing at the Liverpool International Garden Festival, sharing the bill with Acker Bilk and the Black Eagles.

Since then, they have become established members of the Merseyside jazz scene, appearing regularly in the Wirral International Jazz Festival with the likes of Digby Fairweather,  Ben Cohen,  Duncan Swift, Keith Nichol and accompanying vocalistes Sheila Collier and Beryl Bryden.

More recently they have had the pleasure of working with Roy Williams, Jeff Barnhardt and, once again, Keith Nichol and “Spats” Langham.

The Music We Play Includes:

Playing a light hearted, ‘easy to listen to’ variety of jazz, they are always in demand on the Wirral and Merseyside and have ventured as far as Blackpool in the North, Blackburn in the East, and Corby in the South!!!

The Present Line-up is: 

Roger Higham – Trumpet / Cornet,
