About


Blue-Heart Mitch And The Blazin' Jacks are a great party band who can provide three different types of set; ska, soul & rock’n’roll hits of the 1960s as well as jazz, swing & jive hits of the 1930s to the 1960s and a whole set of classic ska. All are great fun with interactive audience participation in both genres & include around two hours of live playing.

What makes Blue Heart Mitch unique is that you can pick your style or mix and match! You want Ska, Rock, Pop, Vintage or a mixture of them all - Blue Heart Mitch are your guys!

The band's singer has a great ‘feel’ for passionate music and loves engaging in a friendly and entertaining dialogue with audiences as well as incorporating participatory singing and dancing with the audience into the show. If the audience are shy, he will hold back and go easy on them but if it’s a party you want, he will be in his element.

Although based in Yorkshire the band are available to hire across England, Scotland and Wales.

The band were fantastic and really made our event a huge success. They were extremely professional and Dave was a brilliant ‘front man’ - getting everyone up on their feet and creating a great party atmosphere. Having had to postpone numerous times due to the pandemic, communication was excellent and they were very accommodating with all the changes of dates. Highly recommended.

Blue-Heart Mitch and the Blazin’ Jacks were awesome at our wedding, helping make it a very special day. We hired the six piece band including saxophone, and they played jazz sets while guests were arriving up to when the main course was served. Then two mains sets later, consisting of ska and rock-n-roll but with some soul and motown thrown in (as we requested). Dave was a brilliant front man, several times going round the venue getting everyone involved and up on their feet, even getting my son/best man to be lead singer on one number! Everyone we’ve spoken to since has said how brilliant they were. Even 87 year old Dorothy/Nan loved them!!! Dave was also a great help in planning the event. We contacted him a few times in the run up, both on the phone and via WhatsApp to confirm first song, the sets and timings and advice on how to set up our Spotify playlists for the sessions inbetween the main sets. He couldn’t have been more helpful, and that made the actual day so much better. Thanks again to you all. You helped make our wedding day, the best day ever. We’ll be back!

I couldn’t be happier with the choice that I made hiring Blue Heart Mitch and the Blazing Jacks. Dave, the lead singer called me a few months before the wedding and kept in touch taking notes of what we wanted. He was so easy to talk to and knew exactly what I wanted. From our first conversation I couldn’t wait to hear them play. When the band arrived Dave came straight to me and Dan to introduce himself. We decided to have the band play our first dance and it was absolutely PERFECT! As soon as the started playing the first set no one left the dance floor till they stopped. They were absolutely incredible. The thing I loved the most was how interactive they were with us and the guests! 2 weeks after the wedding and everyone is still talking about how amazing the band was. They exceeded all expectations and I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. I want to through a party So I can hire them to play. Absolutely SMASHED it! Thank you so much!

These guys are absolutely AMAZING! We were looking for a band for our Wedding Party but we wanted something a little bit different - Blue-Heart Mitch And The Blazin' Jacks fitted the bill perfectly, providing plenty of upbeat, swinging music that had everybody up on the dance floor (even those who are usually reluctant to dance!) 5-star, quality entertainment and the stand out highlight of our night. Thank you so much!

One of the hardest things for two music lovers was choosing a band for our wedding, but with Mitch and the guys we hit the jackpot! From the planning stage Mitch was a great source of guidance and open to suggestions and then to the night itself they were all brilliant, friendly and professional. The whole wedding party was on their feet as soon as they started and they played with energy and passion. We couldn't have asked for a better song list and would recommend adding the sax into the mix as it gave such a great sound. We chose a Toots song for our first dance and it was was perfect and brilliantly done. If you want a great vibe that lasts long into the night, with a sprinkling of fun you should chose this band.

Best party band ever!!! Very professional performance. They phoned us a few weeks before and asked us what we type of music we like, they were bothered about making it a night to remember for us and our family and friends. Excellent musicians. Very skilled. Very impressive. Thank you very much Blue-Heart Mitch and the Blazin' Jacks. And thanks Annaliza for your help and assistance. Best, Dani and John x

We just want to say a "HUGE THANK YOU" to Blue Heart Mitch and The Blazin' Jacks!!! Not only were they terrific on the night, but they helped us in so many ways and were totally professional throughout. From stepping in to fill a cancellation; to learning a totally new 1920's set; arranging a new version of my Daughter's" First Dance" music so it fitted properly, to filling gaps when other entertainers' arrival was delayed. They also liaised with other acts to perform on stage with them. But most of all they were just a fantastic band. Every single band member is an accomplished musician in their own right, but they also have the performance skills to back it up - Virtually the whole room was on the dance floor. They all said it was the best party - let alone wedding - they've ever been to! The Band will be talked about for a long time and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending anyone to book them. Well Done Dave and your Team - your Band completed the perfect day for us - I've never seen my Daughter look happier. Thank you also to the agency for arranging this Band for us and making the booking arrangements and payment procedures so easy.

What a FANTASTIC Band!!!!! I would recommend them to anyone who wants a jolly good PARTY!!! Not only were Mitch and the guys polite, easy going, happy and reassuring (For a Bride!)... their music had bags of charisma, attitude and energy. It is IMPOSSIBLE to not get up and dance, even my Dad who is not a show man in any way was up having the time of his life. We chose the Ska/ Rock n Roll set (with some Reggae thrown in, ode to our Wedding in Florida) and every single song was a classic everyone knew. FANTASTIC Value for Money (We paid a little extra for 12pm - 1 am set which I'd recommend). LOVELY GUYS, accommodating to all of our needs or concerns, no matter how small. NOT CHEESY IN THE SLIGHTST (I am 26 years old and a trained actor/musician so I am very particular about "second rate" and "cringe worthy" acts! This band is neither of those things). All our Friends and Family said best part of our Wedding Reception was the Band. DONE.

We spent a lot of time researching the type of act we wanted for our wedding and finally settled on Blue-Heart Mitch and the Blazin Jacks, primarily because of their extensive and excellent repertoire (you'll struggle to find a bad song) and the positive feedback we came across on various sites. We were not disappointed. Each member of the band is a superb musician and together they create an impressive sound, aided by a top quality set-up and light show. Mitch is a born entertainer and a brilliant frontman who managed to persuade young and old onto the dancefloor. We had so many positive comments after the wedding about the quality of the band. I would strongly recommend you check out the Jacks if you're looking for a professional, fun and rocking act!
