The difference between Jade and other high-end showbands is that their background isn't in theatre, cruise ships or cabaret - it's in the mainstream music business. Members of the band have, for many years, toured and recorded with some of the biggest names in music (James Brown, Tom Jones, Robbie Williams, Ronan Keating, Enrique Iglesias, Kylie....) giving them a 'Rock n Roll' edge that definitely isn't cabaret!
Jade was put together by an events company in 1998, hand-picking top performers for a party in Westminster for the Labour Party Cabinet. Since then they've played at virtually every Virgin Atlantic flight launch party all over the World (Las Vegas, Shanghai, Lagos, Mumbai, Havana, Nassau, Dubai...), played several times at Sir Richard Branson's house and for companies including American Express, Barclays and the Johnnie Walker Golf Classic in Phuket. They've also had the honour of performing at private functions for Prince Charles,Prince Andrew, The Sultan Of Oman and Princess Alia of Jordan.
They were the house band on the Charlotte Church TV show and have recently had Smokey Robinson,Ashford and Simpson and Deniece Williams perform with them as guest singers.

I just want to say a HUGE thank you to you and the band - you were absolutely brilliant. We had so many people asking us who you were and where you were from so expect a few recommendations to come your way.

Jade recently played at our Christmas Dinner Dance and were absolutely fantastic. The dance floor was packed all night long :)
Thank you guys and gilrs for a fabulous eveneing. I think we may have to book you for next year!
Sorry for my delay in sending you this note!
The party went very well and much of the success was due to the performance from Sway. They truly caught everyones hearts and feet for the evening and the only point where the dance floor was slightly clear was when the buffet was announced. I have arranged a few parties over the years from our wedding, 18th parties and more regular house parties, but I have never received so much positive feedback and congratulations on an event. I can also add that Taylar (our 11 year old daughter) went ahead and sang beautifully for her Dad (bringing many tears to the audiences' eyes) this was hugely helped and encouraged by the band members who practised with her before hand and really made her feel comfortable and positive about singing her piece.
Please can you pass on our biggest thanks to all the team, including Mr DJ, maybe they will be available for when Taylar is 18?!
Best regards, Jacqui Norris
Thank you so much for all your help in making Saturday such a great night! Jade were absolutely fantastic and utterly professional throughout. The girls were especially wonderful and we loved performing with them – we really couldn’t have done it without them. We felt very lucky to have such a great band to play the song for Jules and needless to say, she loved it! Please send massive thanks to them from us and I will be recommending them to everyone I know!
With very best wishes
OK, On the FIRST song, the dance floor was ½ full and on the SECOND song COMPLETELY full !!!!!!
The 2-hour Sets went PERFECTLY and at the end JADE came back into the dressing room upstairs but Clients claim back for them during 15 MINUTES !!!!!
So, I asked them to come back on stage and even WITHOUT SHOES FOR THE GIRLS !! and they performed 2 fabulous songs under Ovation !!
JADE gently said that they never had such a great audience !!!....
Frankly Tracy, THE OVERTURES were great but JADE put the level higher and higher !...
What can WE propose in 2 YEARS for the WPC next Event ??????!!!
I saw the WPC President today and he said this is the best Band he has seen in his life and he lives in NY !
So, once again thank you very much to David, Angela and all of the members (and to you of course !)
Saw Jade at a big wedding last year in Suffolk. Great choice of music. They seemed like a really fun bunch - cool and classy, definitely not cheesy! Great musicians too.
Jade was absolutely fabulous! We had so many positive comments from all of our guests and I think the band will agree with me that the dance floor was absolutely packed the whole time.
It was only too bad it was over too soon and it was a tough act to follow for any DJ. Harry did a good job but he agreed with me that he should have had a more powerful sound system as it was a bit weak following the band.
I would definitely use Jade again. It is the best band I have seen apart from very famous artists, like Roxette, Tina Turner etc. Everybody asked where I had found this fantastic band and they also said that they played most songs even better than the originals.
"Jade were great and we had so many complimentary comments about them. Considering they had been in Dublin the night before they were quite outstanding.
