Formed in 2005, King Groovy and the Hornstars is one of Londonís premier big bands, made up of talented musicians from across London. The band has a diverse repertoire from the big band era, with music of Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Quincy Jones. It is just as at home with everything from West End standards to swing versions of upbeat modern classics.

The band regularly plays at London jazz clubs and has performed at a wide range of venues such as the Hippodrome, the Southbank Centre, Camden Roundhouse, Wiltonís Music Hall and the Hammersmith Apollo. King Groovy and the Hornstars is also a regular feature big band for a number of swing dance societies.
