Why choose a jazz band for your event?
Born in New Orleans and originally used for funeral processions, jazz music has evolved into a modern art, crossing all boundaries of age, gender and culture. Jazz can appeal to a highly diverse audience, thanks to its foundations in genuine musical excellence and yet with a lively, accessible beat suitable for any party.
We have provided jazz bands for all types of events, including:
- Wedding receptions
- Corporate events

- Charity events
- Music festivals
…and much more!
Types of London jazz band available from us
We can fit the bill no matter what your requirements. With a wealth of musical talent on which to draw, we will be your perfect band of choice. Some popular types of London jazz band we have fulfilled include:
- Rat Pack style: If you love the age of Sinatra and Co., we can provide a highly skilled jazz band and either solo or multi singer front line to revive the Rat Pack’s most popular songs.
- Swing: Duke Ellington can never be truly replicated, but we can give it a good shot! A swing band set up will typically include piano, bass and drums as well as a guitar and any number of front line instruments from trumpets to saxophones.
- Big Band: A traditional Big Band, as the name suggests, involves the use of an orchestral level of musicians and instruments. Of course we won’t expect your venue to accommodate an entire Big Band (unless you want it to of course!) but will effortlessly replicate the depth and impact of the Big Band sound through our creative arrangements and solos.
- Be-Bop: Back in the 1940’s, great musicians such as Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie led the world into the age of Be-Bop jazz. This fast tempo, highly technical permutation of jazz is sure to get everyone dancing, and is great for smaller venues as it can be performed by just 4 or 5 musicians.
Jazz has the ability to calm, to enthuse, to moderate and to entertain pretty much any group of people, no matter how diverse. If you think a London jazz band is the perfect solution for your event, contact us today for advice and to find out just what we can offer.
