The quintet was created and is led by vintage vocalist Damaris Jean. Damaris Jean was originally performing with backing tracks at well known vintage events, private and corporate functions. Her passion to sing with live musicians led to the creation of Ragtime Rewind.
Damaris first started performing with pianist Jonny after a recommendation from the director of a well know swing dance festival, DJAM. The duet soon expanded to a trio with double bass, and then to a quintet, growing rapidly in popularity in a short space of time.

Ragtime Rewind Vintage Swing Band - Swing Band - Darlington, North of England Event Location: Seahouse Golf Club, Seahouses 30th June 2017
What a fantastic evening we had at Seahouses Golf Club on Friday. Right from the off Damaris and the band created a fabulous vibe. The 'twist' on the modern songs sung as ragtime were excellent, with one of my favourites, Celine Dion's classic "My Heart Will Go On" been outstanding. Everyone without exception loved the evening. Thank you

Damaris Jean's Ragtime Rewind provided the entertainment at our Saturday Night Dance during the Barnard Castle 1940s Weekend and proved to be an excellent choice. Damaris Jean was a good communicator prior to the event, sending a suggested playlist and agreeing the timing and programme well in advance. Appropriate recorded music was provided between sets and we enjoyed the varied programme of dance tunes which included something for everyone! Instrumental and vocal quality was of a very high standard. The band certainly has a following as tickets were booked early on by people who had enjoyed their performances in other venues. We had great feedback after the event from members of the audience. We would definitely recommend.

Ragtime Rewind have performed numerous public and private events, from small birthday celebrations through to large weddings & corporate swing dances over the last 3 years. Within only 12 months of forming the band were asked to provide the headlining act for the P&O Vintage Cruise in 2017 following the excellent feedback from satisfied customers throughout that first year. All members of the band have years of performing experience with different bands which has led to the quality seen in the bands performances.
