Quick biography

In the early 2000’s, Tim Garland had a tentet (The Dean Street Underground Orchestra) that played on a regular basis at the famous Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho. This became an iconic band that filled the club whenever it played. John Aram and Tim Garland are recreating this exciting band with all new music written by Tim. Since forming in 2017, the band has played concerts and festivals in Switzerland and the UK.
