About us

The Jazz Phoneys are Jonathan Smith on guitar, Rob Dickens on tenor sax, Mark Shaw on alto sax (occasional), and Rob's smartphone on piano, bass and drums (courtesy of the amazing iREAL b app).

Our repertoire of jazz standards includes many in the gypsy and Latin-American genres, and has grown steadily since we began meeting up for a weekly jam session in the summer of 2011.

Available for private functions

We specialise in playing to audiences at smaller, sometimes unconventional venues, where an 'analogue' rhythm-section simply wouldn't fit, or might be too loud.

Please email rob.dickens AT or ring Walsall (01922) 620 953 for further details.
