Welcome to The Quaynotes Website

Hi and welcome to The Quaynotes website.

The Quaynotes are a swing jazz quintet. We play swing tunes based on the great American song book and also interpretations of more modern songs, mostly at venues and dances in North Wales. We do, occasionally, travel further afield.

Come and see us when you can, and say “‘hello” !


Well we are in “lockdown” like the rest of the country at the moment. It’s a bit boring because as well as no gigs, we can’t get together to rehearse either.

Clive has been working hard keeping CAIS going in the face of the storm.

Mike is taking delivery of some very sexy new hybrid electric loco’s for his railway up Snowdon.

Cookie has been ferreting away at a computer screen up in the hills.

Roland has been spring cleaning his gallery.

Paul has been topping up his tan.

We hope you are keeping safe and well.

Keep swinging.






The Quaynotes are:


Roland Powell – Vocals and inspiration.
Clive Wolfendale – Reeds and repartee.
Paul Kent – Bass and occasional guitar (very cool).
Mountain Mike Robertshaw – Percussion and engineering.
Cookie Baker – Keyboards and fashion guru.
