Profile Information

The 'Have a Banana - Cockney Ding Dong - One Man Band' is the latest in low tech One Man Bands, and is sure to please and wow crowds in equal measure, with a good old cockney knees up!

Jake’s One Man Band setup is a symphony of bangs, whistles, honks, dings and crashes. With bass drum, hi hat, tambourines, banjos, kazoos, harmonica and a dozen other bits and bobs Jake's 'Have a Banana band' is not just a one man band but London's very own One Man Philharmonic Orchestra of the Street!

Dressed in a natty pearly king outfit with models of London Landmarks all over his drum, once he has made his entrance and wowed you with his one man band prowess, he’ll remove the one man band kit and switch to a mixture of guitar, accordion and banjo to sing you all your cockney favourites, and you can sing-along too! Vintage songs we know and love including: Knees up Mother Brown, Don't Dilly Dally, Any Old Iron, Lambeth Walk,  and I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts to name but a few.

Jake is a musician, performer and composer who works in theatre, music venues, television and radio. In the last year alone his one man band has been featured with comedian Al Murray and given pearls of wisdom to John Bishop. His one man band has featured on the BBC's one show and was a star turn on the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures demonstrating the art of multi-tasking (much to his wife's bemusement).  Always friendly, cheeky and a great giggle for any event in Old London Town or anywhere else for that matter!
