Penny Payne Band

The Penny Payne Band was formed when two like-minded musicians met at a music festival, both wanting to give a fresh look to the blues.  They now perform as a three, four or five piece group, using Penny’s easy rapport with audiences and Andy’s musical talents to cover a large range of music, including blues, country, rock and pop.

The Band offers a fantastic mix to suit a wide variety of tastes and venues from restaurants to cabaret evenings, parties and weddings.  They call it “More Than The Blues”.

Penny Payne

Penny was born in Islington, London.  Her involvement in singing started 25 years ago when she joined a jazz band for fun.  She has not looked back since.

Over the years she has worked with various jazz bands, performing on the club circuit, including the “100 Club” and at jazz weekends, festivals and corporate functions.

In 2011 Penny met Andy Millen, a great guitar player, with whom she started a blues duo.  This developed into the Penny Payne Band which can perform as a three, four or five piece group.

Penny has kept her own lively style of blues, but the band now play a mix of mellow and lively numbers, from blues to country, rock and pop, appealing to a wider audience in a greater variety of venues.


Andrew Millen

Born in South London, Andrew started playing guitar and soon found it safer to play in a band. Andrew became a full time musician 15 years ago, travelling around Europe and finally settling in Sussex.  His love of music varies from opera to rock.

Andrew has played with several bands in the South East including Blackstar Eddie, Sloe Gin, The Boogeras Bros and Perfect Strangers.  Most recently he has joined forces with the wonderful Penny Payne to play a select number of venues, supporting her soulful style of blues.
