Hello! We are Matt Jones and Kate Wright, gramophone enthusiasts based in Bristol, playing music from the 1920's, 30's, 40's on original wind-up gramophones. We have played at wedding receptions, art galleries, art deco hotels, music concerts, cinemas, birthday parties in church halls and tea parties in the park. Drawing on a large collection of 78rpm records, we usually play a varied mixture of dance bands, popular vocal, jazz, chanson, latin, etc....  but are happy to tailor a set to suit your tastes.

We use two 1930's His Masters Voice 102 gramophones, widely regarded as one of the best sounding portable gramophones, and one horn gramophone to complete the picture. The gramophones are surprisingly loud and clear, but can easily be amplified using microphones if neccessary. We've been gramophoning since 2003, it's always a pleasure to bring the machines and the music to gatherings and celebrations!

"On the beach, in the woods, up the river, or wherever you may be, there is no instrument to compare with His Masters Voice portable"
