Benoit Viellefon and his Orchestra are the leading vintage dance ensemble to have emerged from the UK in recent years, taking the British scene by storm. Amongst the finest entertainers of his generation, Benoit directs an ensemble of internationally acclaimed musicians in a manner reminiscent of Duke Ellington, Cab Calloway and Charles Trenet at the very height of their popularity.

Headlining festivals such as the jazz stage at Glastonbury in 2011 and the Rhythm Riot Festival in the same year, Benoit and his orchestra are the hottest live outfit for all those who revel in the nostalgia and elegance of a by-gone era, with a repertoire consisting of the most beautiful and uplifting songs from the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s and originals in the same classic style.

Benoit and the orchestra are consistently the first choice for all the most fashionable vintage festivals and events across Europe and are the UK's finest exponents of vintage dance music. Benoit's authentic vocal renditions of French chanson, swing, jive, Russian-folk, charleston, Latin American

 

and Cuban dance music have captivated festival audiences all over Europe, America, and the far East.

The wailing clarinet and scorching trumpet of Benoit's brass section are always a festival favourite, and with the addition of one of Europe's finest accordion players, a thumping double bass, Harlem-style stride piano, old school drum set, a host of gypsy jazz guitars and as very special guest the exotic songstress and dancer Suri Sumatra, the orchestra is complete. Indeed Benoit's successful tours in Italy, France, Belgium, Croatia, Russia and Japan are testament to the orchestra's dazzling mix of high energy multi-instrumental virtuosity and effortless melody, guaranteed to have audiences on their feet and in each others' arms.
