Jonny Boston Jonny Boston

Singer, Saxophonist & Songwriter JONNY BOSTON excelled in music at Christ's Hospital, a school where he was nurtured and encouraged. He debuted aged 15 with Bahrain Jazz Quartet in the Middle East. Legendary cornetist Phil Mason first heard him busking on the Underground, which led to tours throughout Europe with Max Collie Rhythm Aces by the age of 18. Jonny left Max to study at Leeds College of Music, where he sailed through his Graduate Diploma in Jazz & Contemporary Music with Honours! While there, he won the Yorkshire TV Young Jazz Player of the Year. The judges included Chris Barber, who later invited Jonny’s band, Boston Tea Party, to perform with his Jazz & Blues Band. Since returning to London, in 1998, he has played with such bands as Phil Mason’s New Orleans All Stars, The Pasadena Roof Orchestra, King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys, Barry Martyn & The Young Bloods, Ginger Pig Band and TJ Johnson’s Bourbon Kick. His music has taken him as far as the US, also performing at numerous European & UK Jazz Festivals. Venues of note include Blenheim Palace, Royal Festival Hall, The Ritz, St David’s Hall, and London clubs The Boisdale Club, The 606 Club, and the much frequented 100 Club on Oxford St. He has even played alongside the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra!

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
