Hamer and Isaacs Logo Design

Hamer & Isaacs logo by Hannah Sterry. Hamer & Isaacs play volcanic, swinging gypsy jazz. Whilst portraying the influence of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France, the unique addition of Rosie Corlett's soaring, flaming vocals is guarenteed to turn the thermostat up a notch. Rich Hamer (lead guitar) provides cut, thrust, panache and inspiration, and Mel Brindle Scullion (swing violin) utilises her impeccable classical pedigree to lend virtuosity to the flair of her improvisation. Julian Isaacs (rhythm guitar), a veteran of the gypsy jazz scene for over three decades, and the animated and vivacious lines of Howard Kahn (double bass) provide the driving force that is the rhythm section. Hamer & Isaacs Gypsy Swing Band are available as a guitar duo, an instrumental or vocal trio, or as a full quintet. Set the controls for the heart of swing and witness them for yourselves!

My latest artwork hasn’t had anything to do with Sterry Cartoons. Most recently I’ve been designing this logo for Hamer & Isaacs gypsy swing band. The band have had a number of successes in the South West and London, with performances at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant in Padstow and upcoming performance at The Royal Albert Hall on March 8th (see their shows page for more information).

Don’t let me carry on though – see for yourselves! Here’s a video from one of their performances at Plymouth Jazz Club!

Hamer & Isaacs play volcanic, swinging gypsy jazz. Whilst portraying the influence of Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France, the unique addition of Rosie Corlett’s soaring, flaming vocals is guaranteed to turn the thermostat up a notch.

Let me know what you think, and if you like the music, feel free to head over to the Hamer & Isaacs website for more!

**EDIT**

As of 2015, Hamer & Isaacs has morphed in to two separate groups:

  • Hot Club of Stonehouse
  • Hamer and Co.

Both groups can still be found playing in venues around the South West.

Harpist for Hire!

Hannah Sterry - Harpist based in Salcombe, South Hams, Devon.

Juggling a lot of hobbies at once isn’t easy.

Currently I’m juggling a full time Open University course with a part-time job, music lessons, gigs, learning to drive and somehow still find time to see the boyfriend. Add Sterry Cartoons to that as well, and it seems like my mind is trying to run off in about ten directions at once.

You might think that I’d be trying to cut back, but no…

I have decided to become a wedding harpist.

And, instead of hiding the pricing, I’ve decided to be transparent about it. If you’re really lucky I might even include my pricing equation!

Harpist Hire for Private Events

Currently, for private events in Kingsbridge, Salcombe and the surrounding area, my basic rate is £125*, based on two 45 minute sets (£225 at peak times such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve).

For events outside this area, my travel cost and any other expenses will be included in the price.

Private Event Hire = £125 (+ £100 at peak times) + Travel Cost

I’d be more than happy to tailor the set to meet your requirements and welcome any particular song requests that you may have!

If there’s anything I can do for you, please don’t hesitate to contact me via the contact form here. It doesn’t matter how small the request/question is! I’ll be happy to hear from you!
