What people say about us …

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

THE most amazing night Madeleine O'Brien

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 !
