Aydenne Simone is an international jazz & blues singer. Known as a vocal powerhouse, with deep sensuous velvet tones, Aydenne's charisma and swing transports you back to the 1950s. "A night that will stay with you forever".

The 'Queen of Swing and her trio will leave you singing all the way home!

Vocals: Aydenne Simone // Piano: Olly Chalk // Bass: Tom Dring // Drums: Gwilym Jones
This band is tight!, their unspoken communication shines throughout.

Aydenne's philosophy is very simple "Give your audience songs they will remember, do it justice and do it right!. Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and those in that era had one thing in common, outstanding quality. "

Acclaimed jazz and blues singer Aydenne Simone has been wowing audiences for nearly 30 years …. jazz is her thing ….. swing is her life!

Aydenne sings and swings to perfection, her voice moving effortlessly from beguiling to bold to brassy to bluesy, always with the greatest respect for the lyrics she so wonderfully projects. Chris Hare Jazz Organiser – Club for Acts and Actors.

“She makes the hairs stand up on the back if your kneck…..” Time Out

" Not only did Aydenne Simone bring to Peggy’s a fine, high quality ensemble of musicians, not only did she put together a repertoire of soul jazz classics, she also brought to Peggy’s our first full audience standing ovation. Aydenne Simone brought the house down at Peggy’s Skylight, her performance was electric, fantastic and unforgettable.!" Peggy's Skylight,Nottingham

"Her group is a tight, expert unit capable of delivering jazz on many levels. Last night they delighted a packed house with a gutsy performance of vocal classics which could scarcely have been improved". London Jazz News Review - Nov 2018
