Vintage jazz band
Public liability insurance of £5 million

Dr Jazz is a 6-piece Great Gatsby band comprising trumpet/vocals, trombone, clarinet, piano, double bass and drums. Dr Jazz is both quirky and fun, with the vocal numbers being sung through a megaphone for that authentic Roaring 20s/30s sound. With an extensive repertoire of instantly recognisable favourites from the Roaring 20s and the musicals of the 30s, Dr Jazz entertains all ages with its mix of timeless, ever-popular songs from Broadway and Hollywood. Serving up classics by the likes of George and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin...with a generous order of Dixie on the side! The band’s frontman presents himself in full evening dress of top hat, white tie and tails with the rest of the musicians in smart waistcoats and bow ties. Founded in 2006, it is a very experienced and professional band offering a top class and hassle-free service. Dr Jazz is very versatile and can provide music indoors or outdoors for weddings, drinks receptions, garden parties, dinners, balls, race meetings, corporate hospitality and charity events.

Well, where can I start! From initially stumbling upon Dr Jazz and realising that there was something rather special about their approach and unique sound, to the very first email and phone calls to discuss our plans for the day, all the way through to our Wedding day itself - Dr Jazz and company were brilliant. Helpful, friendly, and wonderfully entertaining, we could not have asked for anything more. The set itself was fantastic - we were blown away with how much of an impact they made, not only in terms of everyone feeling the urge to get up to dance (which was a slight worry for us before the day!), but also with their spot on interaction with the guests, and overall management and ownership of the evening. We really knew we'd made the right decision as soon as the first note was played – talk about creating a spectacle!! In terms of a front man Matthew is absolutely superb, and his supporting crew of brilliantly talented musicians helped make our day one to remember for both us and our guests. Thank you all so very much for everything. We know what it's like trying to find the 'right band', ourselves having trawled through many hundreds of sample tracks from other people and groups, and the worries that come with it regarding whether people will like it, whether it'll be well received etc. The best advice I can honestly give is that if you are sitting there reading this review, and you have enjoyed the sample tracks you've listened to, then please don't hesitate to book these guys. You will not regret it, and you and your guests will certainly never forget it. They were nothing short of marvellous. Once again we wanted to say thank you very much for everything - we really had a fantastic time, as did everyone else in attendance, and it is all thanks to you and your crew. You certainly made the evening, if not the day for us, and we are so pleased and lucky to have been able to book you to play for us. You were nothing short of brilliant, and we can't stop talking or thinking about how amazing you were (and nor can anyone else!) It was so lovely to meet you all in person. All the best for the future, and please rest assured that we'll be singing your praises for the years to come!

Thank you for playing for us last night - we loved the music you played and felt it really set our night off perfectly! Everyone has been saying how brilliant the band was last night and the photos today show that people really had a great time!! Your outfits were also perfectly fitting with our Roaring 20s theme and we literally couldn't have asked for more! Thank you so much once again and we would not hesitate to book you for events in the future!
