GUARANTEED!!! MUSICAL, EXCITING & FUN JAZZ FOR ALL OCCASIONS!!!
John Shillito Band
(aka Select Six)
The Select Six is an exciting and accomplished band with a wide repertoire, a strong ensemble sound and exciting soloists. Our programmes strike all the right chords in many moods; from the poignant melancholy of the blues to the joy of a good-time vaudeville song; from the mellow emotions of a romantic ballad to the abandoned ebullience of a street right of of New Orleans and the rollicking rhythms of boogie-woogie. With a front line that includes Bobby Fox and John Wurr you can expect an enthralling performance and plenty of high spirits. I get a real thrill from leading this band because everyone makes my job so easy! Each musician gives so much! I've been leading bands now for 60 years, and, believe me, this is the very best! Come along and see and hear for yourself!

The "strolling" SELECT FOUR has become a hot favourite with a lot of folks who never dream of going to jazz clubs or festivals. Our colourful, jolly image and presentation give us a wide public appeal, and the band has become a popular commercial attraction for corporate and promotional events. For more than twenty years we've been the shoppers' favourite band at THE SHOPS AT DARTINGTON (Cider Press Centre), near Totnes and customers of many other large retailers, including Asda, the Co-op and Tesco have found our eye-catching, ear-pleasing, foot-tapping qualities an enjoyable accompaniment to their shopping. Daewoo, Ford, Mercedes-Benz and Peugeot are amongst the motor franchises who have used the music of the SELECT FOUR to add a special zing to their promotional events.
Our aim and motto: jazz things up a bit! and we always do!
