The Crane Lane Theatre was delighted to host The Hot House Big Band as the opening act for our Jazz festival programme . They had our hearts pounding and toes tapping as they filled the Theatre with seamlessly arranged pieces. With sweet solos from many of the talented musicians leading into thunderous applause as the 17 piece band came together and left both young and old gasping for more.

As part of The Autumn Jazz Collective in Balbriggan we were looking for a Headline act for our Autumn Jazz Event, we went no further than The Hothouse Big Band and they sure sent out a great message for us, they were excellent and have to be seen and heard to be believed,so much so that we can’t wait to have them back. I was also involved in Malahide Uberfest in May and The Hot House Big Band headlined the Sunday night with a very different show to that of Autumn Jazz which proved their excellence as well as versatility. Great Act Full Stop.

Its no mean feat to keep a big band at the consistent standard of HHBB, with some of the most experienced players on the Dublin scene. Great band book too, something for everyone!

Hi Mark ,I just wanted to say a massive thanks to you and the band members for doing a great job at our wedding. Loads of our guests commented on how good the band were. Myself and Aishling really enjoyed the whole day and the music really ensured that we all enjoyed ourselves so much. So thanks again and if anyone ever asks us for advice about a wedding band we’ll know where to send them.​All the best,​Gavin and Aishling.

Hi all, just wanted to say anyone out there looking for a band for any occasion these guy’s are a must. We got them for our wedding and what a day we had. They were just fabulous, every single guest commented on how good they were. We still meet people and the first thing they say is what a great day they had and how good the band were. Even my two niece’s, who thought we would be playing “old people’s music” said they were great. They play a great mix of pop rock jazz and big band just about anything you want. If your looking for something different do yourself a favour and book these lad’s they are excellent. Thanks guy’s i can’t say enough about you, especially Johnny a great M.C.
