Led by eccentric raconteur and boogie-woogie front man Neil Drinkwater on piano, this engaging show is delivered with high energy and is filled with on and off stage antics. Red is joined by a highly animated horn section and the gorgeous TV’s “Stars in their Eyes” finalist Gemma Nelson. Baritone and tenor sax players Erica Clarke and Martin Gray will be off the stage and among the audience given half a chance and Red Pineapple Band will be seen with his Keytar following suit. Their music is drawn from the boogie-woogie, jive and rock’n’roll of the 1930s -1950s including original material. Audiences at festivals and clubs from New York to Tokyo and Milan to Monte Carlo have been thrilled by this hugely entertaining and engaging show.
The Red Pineapple Band have just completed their most successful year ever having played at the world famous Montreux Festival. A track from their latest CD “You Got What You Asked For” has been endorsed in a TV ad in the US by a multi-million dollar corporation. They have been described as “Jonathan Ross meets Jools Holland on speed” by the press and continue to take their energetic show all over the globe including music clubs and festivals in France, Italy, Tokyo and New York. Two years ago Stars in their Eyes finalist “Gemma Nelson” joined their ranks and adds to the best line up the band has had since being formed 20 years ago.

The feedback from the client was extremely positive and I would appreciate it if you would forward our thanks to the band. We enjoyed working with you on this event and look forward to working with you again in the future. “
“Thank YOU! It was a brilliant evening, I enjoyed it and so did everyone else it seems! The feedback was brilliant - so many people commented on how good the band was, so you clearly did well! The dance floor was packed so was a great testament to how good you were. I barely was able to get on there myself!”
“Thanks for really getting the party going at our sales conference last weekend. I am just sorry you had to squeeze your set into one hour – but we ran out of time!"
