Harry’s Tricks is a swing jazz or more accurately pre 1950’s pop band.  It’s quality, it’s quirky, it’s catchy, it crosses over all age boundaries, and it’s immensely good fun. The format can range from a tasteful background duo to a five piece party band, and either acoustic or amplified depending on the clients’ requirements.

Led by Mike the Mic, the band can include vocals, guitar, double bass, drums, violin, clarinet, trombone, saxophone and musical saw.

Mike the Mic, a professional musician since 1997, has played at all types of events, weddings, anniversaries, pubs, festivals, county shows, garden parties, wine tastings, charity events and even at Lambeth palace , literally hundreds of gigs in various different band formats. Bands have included Tulip tree, The Haberdashers, Fridge Magnets, Lost Sock Club, Cat Dog Rat Weasel and now Harry’s Tricks.

As the resident DJ at a Club night called Chat Noir at the Hanbury Club in Brighton, Mike and Harry’s Tricks have been chosen in The Guardian newspaper guide as pick of the week three times within the last year!

“The job is to create magic in a way that is broadly accessible”, Mike says.

A long standing relationship to Small World Stage at festivals has also given Mike and his friends for many years a rare opportunity to play on stage for up to 10 hours to a colourful audience who like to party to live music.

This kind of gig situation has given Mike experience well beyond the confines of formal concerts and from this a sense of magic which he is able to bring back to more formal events.”

You can be sure Harry’s Tricks brings the swing into every occasion!
