Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?
We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-audititioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.
Do you have different line-up options?
We are able to provide line ups from duo (guitar and vocal) through to full quintet (vocal, sax, guitar, bass and drums.) We strive to provide lineups to suit all budgets and venues, no space too big or small.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set until the venue closes, we provide this for an additional £100.
How much time do you need to set up?
Depending on the lineup we require between 30 mins to one hour. We are able to provide a free playlist service whilst we set up to get your guests ready for our live performance.
Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?
Absolutely, we are happy for you to choose from our repertoire list and can provide an extra song request from the Jazz canon.
Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?
Everything we need for the performances is included with no hidden costs.
Can you learn song requests before the event?
If a song isn't included in our song list there may still be a chance we already know it. If there is a special song you'd like us to learn we are happy to do this for you. There is a fee of £30 for this service to take into account rehearsal times etc. Please note we do not perform 'post modern jukebox' style arrangements of pop songs.
What do your clients love most about your performances?
Clients often remark on the authenticity of our performances, as a band of first call Jazz musicians we have collectively spent hundreds of thousands of hours honing our craft. This means that we are able to provide top quality performances, both true to the original recordings but with our own personal touch.
Which venues have you performed at in the past?
We have performed in a wide array of venues from churches, theatres and jazz clubs through to stately homes, festivals and narrowboats. We strive to provide linueps to suit every occassion, even where space may be limited.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Our vocalist is often likened to Sarah Vaughan, Blossom Dearie and Ella Fitzgerald. We are all greatly influenced by masters Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong and all the great Jazz records of the 1950s.
What is the most high profile gig you've performed?
We have each performed a number of high profile gigs at Jazz clubs and festivals across the UK and Europe, receiving great acclaim and some very favourable reviews in the Jazz press.
