One Jump Ahead Short Info

"The time flew; a sure sign that Kit Packham’s One Jump Ahead with its thoroughly well-written arrangements and heartfelt blend of comedy and music, had done a fine job of bringing this classy joint to life." - Gemma Boyd, Jazzwise, July 2014.

"A huge number of people sought me out, specifically to let me know 'how fantastic the band were' and how much they were enjoying your work. I think this speaks for itself! It goes without saying that the music was superb, your energy was fantastic and you created a great atmosphere with your energy and style!” - Alix, WW2 themed tea dance, Nov 2013.
