Mike Porter-Ward and his team of musicians perform regularly as a Sussex Jazz band and are frequent visitors to Brighton and Eastbourne. Sussex wedding bands are in great demand, but Mike can provide entertainment for any event, party or function.

Most of the music that Mike and the boys play are tunes that we all know and love from the Rat Pack and swing eras, but they are adept at many styles of music. They can play music that is appropriate for any wedding or party.

Mike can also provide a line up that will fit both your budget and space available. If the party is small and space is at premium, Mike can provide a duo consisting of piano and bass. If the room is big and you fancy having a larger line up, then why not go for the full jazz band.

Sussex has always been popular for weddings other events. Brighton and the south coast is not too far from London and access is very easy by rail. There are many venues to choose from in the Sussex area and you could easily be spoilt for choice.

A little information about Sussex

Sussex has a total population of 1,548,000 and covers an area of 1,463sq miles. It borders Kent on the East, Hampshire on the west and Surrey in the north. Sussex is split into three administrative regions which are: Brighton and Hove, West Sussex and East Sussex.

Iron was at one time the main industry in Sussex, but as charcoal burning gave way to coal a decline occurred and the North of England had it’s industrial renaissance. Industry is now wide and varied throughout Sussex but in particular there has been quite a lot of industrial growth in and around the Gatwick area with it’s many industrial estates. The Brighton and Hove areas have a high density of new media businesses and the area been nicknamed ‘Silicon Beach’. Sussex possesses working harbours at Rye, Hastings, Newhaven and Shoreham, whilst whilst Pagham and Chichester harbours just cater for leisure craft these days, as does Brighton Marina. Most of the farming in Sussex is mixed farming as there are only small areas of land that are suitable for growing crops. The Sussex cattle have always been a feature of the county and are the direct descendents of draught oxen. The Southdown Sheep were always associated with the chalk downlands of Sussex, but as artificial fertilizers were introduced this gradually gave way to cereal growing.

Sussex has many attractions for the holiday maker, some of the most famous being: Fishbourne Roman Palace, Herstmonceux Castle, Lewes Castle & Anne of Cleves House, The Royal Pavilion (Brighton), Petworth House and Bodiam Castle.
