Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard line-up is a piano, bass & drums trio. However we often add a vocalist or saxophone and/or trumpet to suit the occasion.

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

We are easy to work with and don't get bothered by small changes.

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

We are happy to provide background music between sets, just let us know if this is needed.

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually less than an hour, it can depend on how many stairs are involved!

Can you roam around while you perform?

No, the nature of the instruments prevents this.

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

Of course.

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

The quote includes PA if needed. Lighting would be extra, but it is rarely required for this type of band.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Absolutely. We have sheet music for thousands of songs, and can play and improvise around almost anything.

Our clients appreciate totally live music played to a high standard. No backing tracks.

Theatres, cruises, nightclubs, jazz clubs, etc.

Reviews

From customers:

James L, 2 years ago

We booked Elevation for our wedding and they were FABULOUS! All guests young and old loved their well chosen cross section of jazz styles, and we were very impressed with the trio's professionalism. Prior to the big day well in advance the band asked us for any requests and were extremely accommodating from first contact onwards. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
