“We’ve had many bands play at the Wigan jazz Club, some well-known, some not so, few if any have had the impact of The Anchormen Jazz Orchestra presented by their director Robert Steele, their performance had everything that an audience could wish for. If only all jazz gigs were like this!! They’ll be back for certain and so will the audience”

What people say about us …
We’ve had many bands play at the Wigan jazz Club, some well-known, some not so, few if any have had the impact of The Anchormen Jazz Orchestra presented by their director Robert Steele, their performance had everything that an audience could wish for. If only all jazz gigs were like this!! They’ll be back for certain and so will the audience
Honest to goodness, straight down the line, no word of a lie… The best gig I’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing.
The Anchormen Jazz Orchestra are absolutely top notch, and the crowd at The Record Factory, most notably, David Jamieson & Alison Jamieson, were absolutely phenomenal.
“A performance is measured by the relationship between performers and audience.”
“Never let them see it coming, and always leave them wanting more.”
Had THE most amazing night listening to the unbelievably talented Anchormen orchestra in Glasgow. A night of truly special music, singing and dancing. Wish they were Scottish so we could hear more of them . Thank you for making out night sooo special
Anchormen Jazz Orchestra. When you walk in and your buddy is singing ” Come fly with me ” there’s a fair chance it might be a good night. It was breathtakingly fabulous. On a par with an open air concert in Rousillon with Yehudi Menuhin and Stephane Grapelli . Just out of this world. Both of us still buzzing. One of our best nights out ever. Stereophics next weekend have a hard act to follow . That good !
‘The City of Derry Jazz Festival is delighted to welcome back The Anchormen Jazz Orchestra to our 2019 Festival which will take place from the 2nd – 6th May 2019. Festival Organise Andrea Campbell said ‘we received amazing feedback from members of the public and venues about Anchormen Jazz Orchestra so we are excited to have the band back again for 2019, their performances are most definitely not to be missed!‘
‘A swinging band guaranteed to keep everyone, from young and old, happy! Thrilled I booked them for Ireland’s most prestigious jazz Festival and more importantly, can’t wait to have them back!!’
Thank you so much for performing at our inaugural fundraising ball – all of our guests absolutely raved about you guys … Thank you for being so entertaining – it was a joy to see the dancefloor jam packed right up until the last word sung! … We are absolutely thrilled with how you guys went down – and I know the committee were aswell! … Thanks again Robert for all your help and fantastic band on the night!
