Jetset features a first-rate collaboration of some of the UK’s top musicians of the moment, working together to offer the highest quality of talent and performance. Each member has had thorough training followed by regular employment as a full-time musician, ensuring they deliver the highest standard in the industry.
Jetset have performed at 5-star hotels all around the world and have circumnavigated the globe numerous times aboard cruise liners, providing entertainment for such prestigious companies as Holland America and P&O. They have also worked alongside such household names as Gareth Gates, Jimmy James, Bucks Fizz and Jaki Graham to name a few.
Jetset were first established in 1994 by Band Leader/Musical Director and drummer, Jaime Caswell. Due to Jetset’s respected name and wealth of experience, in 2010 they were head-hunted by Away Resorts Creative Director, Max Barraclough. Mill Rythe is close to the heart of Jetset members as former Musical Director and keyboard player Chris Caswell spent a significant proportion of his career working at the park.
Jetset offer Away Resorts comprehensive and versatile support in the entertainment department, such as:
- Backing the highly acclaimed production shows, working alongside top Musical Directors from the West End.
- Backing cabaret acts at short notice: the band is required to perform with singers of all varieties from modern pop tributes to classical violinists. With rehearsal time often being at a premium, the ability to sight-read music to a high standard is essential for all members. The band combines this ability with a thorough knowledge of music production techniques, enabling a four-piece band to reproduce the musical energy of a ten-piece orchestra.
- An extensive and varied repertoire: with the wide range of different holiday breaks offered by Away Resorts, Jetset can adapt to offer an intimate jazz trio, acoustic duo, piano duo or a “chilled out” five piece band. Jetset’s regular band sets cover a large amount of the evening’s entertainment, offering a mix of genres from lively 60s dance music to modern party songs, ballroom, jazz, reggae, rock and roll and more besides; all this is fronted by our female vocalist Celena Amiria, who also performs as a cast member in the production shows.
Jetset have always been thrilled to be part of the Away Resorts family, and enjoy the many challenges it brings: backing an act they have never met before, a full day of show rehearsals ahead of the premiere performance of a brand new Away Resorts production show, or a holiday break specifically catering to lovers of ballroom dancing…it’s all in a day’s work at Mill Rythe!
Jetset are grateful to share another wonderful year here at Mill Rythe, and look forward to being a part of the constantly expanding creativity the company and extended Away Resorts family have to offer.
