About Eddie Gipper

Versatile and perfect for weddings, parties and bespoke functions. Choose what music YOU want and we'll take it from there...
Jazz band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I am a musician who prides myself in not only understanding all manners of music but also understanding the importance of what music means to you! I have worked as a professional musician for over 5 years; I love what I do and take great pleasure in helping your dream come true. I am based in Cardiff, working in and around the city and the South-West region in general (Bristol, Bath, Swansea etc.). From Jazz in bars and up-market restaurants, to pop-covers at weddings and receptions, I have all your bases covered! I am fortunate enough to be apart of a well connected network of musicians, consisting of Singers, Saxophonists, Guitarists and Bassists - you name it - if you have something particular in mind, I happy to accommodate to you (one highlight for me thus far was playing at a surprise wedding in West Wales, the groom had no idea he was getting married until 2 hours before show time!!) What ever genre you desire - jazz, pop, blues, soul, all of the above - I'll learn your favourite tunes ahead of time and take requests on the day...

Customer questions

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Yes! If you require a singer, the one featured in the video is our go to man.

Do you have different line-up options?

One option would be solo Piano (perfect for intimate wedding services and up-market bars/restaurants). After there is acoustic duo, Piano and Vocals (male). The vocalist can also play guitar upon requests. After that there is Jazz Trio (any combination of Piano, Bass and Drums OR Guitar). Additionally, the singer can be included to make a quartet.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We will try our absolute best to accommodate to you. We know how stressful it can be trying to plan a surprise birthday or wedding - keep us up to date with all the info we need and we'll do the rest!

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

An iPod/Auxiliary cable is available upon request.

How much time do you need to set up?

Anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes, with the larger bands we will need to soundcheck before hand.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

Our set list is merely a suggestion - the full list of our repertoire could go on for much longer! If we know a song, then we can play it, feel free to pick our brains on the day. However, if you have any particular special recommendations and requests in mind please be mindful to let us know ahead of time.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

The PA is included in price, however for background music gigs and venues it will not always be necessary and we will use a more discreet system. We are happy to guide you as to what will be best for your event, just drop us a line!

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Of course! This is our big selling point. We know or can play most well known TOP 40 pop songs from the last 40 years or so, not to mention jazz standards from the Great American Songbook! Please let us know any specific requests ahead of time, however, so we can learn them if needs be.
