About New Regency Orchestra

New Regency Orchestra has created a storm in the last three years with its mighty twelve-piece horn section, lock-tight five-piece rhythm section and the NRO dancers bringing new energy and arrangements to the golden age of latin jazz and salsa.

Inspired by New York’s melding of Jazz and Latin from the 50s to the 70s, when jazz luminaries Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker collided with the Cuban roots of Chano Pozo and Machito, NRO add a contemporary London spin with the city’s best Latin Music and Jazz talent driving each other to greater heights.

2024 finds NRO ready for the world. The band’s debut album is being pressed for release by Mr Bongo on June 14, with two singles on April 3 and May 2.

The 18-piece big band formed in London in 2021 to provide a regular gig for members of the city’s Jazz and Latin scenes emerging from lockdown. Beginning with a show at South Facing Festival, the band built a following with a residency at EartH Theatre. Touring shows across England included main stages at We Out Here and Brighton Festival with more in the summer and autumn of 2024.

‘A hepcat big band with a vibe straight out of the Nuyorican barrios…a killer rhythm section, mighty wall of horns and moments of sparkling call-and-response between instruments and dancers – given a 21st century London twist with new influences, arrangements and attitude.’ Evening Standard
