About Us

Formed in 1993, Shropshire based band 3 in a Bar has gained a well-deserved reputation as the county's most entertaining and easy-on-the-ear jazz group

the current line up of
Mike Gray - saxes
Frank Mooney - sax
Emily Floyd - vocals, sax, clarinet, trumpet
Brian Jones - keyboard
Dave Towers - bass
Gary Santry - drums
is much in demand for a wide variety of public and private engagements, including weddings, christenings and funerals.

3 IN A BAR aim to appeal to both long-standing jazz fans and newcomers to the music. Their wide repertoire, ranging from the traditional jazz sounds of New Orleans through the hits of the Swing Era to the heady days of 1940s Bebop, always makes for a varied evening's entertainment.

The band can guarantee that their mixture of the familiar and the esoteric - including some original compositions but leader Mike Gray - can offer "something for everyone" in the course of an engagement.

Their flexible approach, plus the fact that extra musicians are also available when required, gives the option of working from a basic quartet up to an 8-piece band.
