We are a vocal and piano duo from Manchester, available for all kinds of functions and events. We both studied Music at Manchester University. During this time we have plenty of performing experience in groups such as MSC Big Band and Manchester University Big Band. Niamh (vocals) is part of the trio Cafe Spice and Tom (piano) of the Tom Barber Trio. We cover a huge range of repertoire, from traditional jazz of Gershwin and Cole Porter, to soul and R&B by the likes of Aretha Franklin and Amy Winehouse, and much more besides. We are more than happy to take on requests if given notice.

Niamh and Tom take the soul and warmth of old classics and make new songs sound just as indelible. I can’t think of a better duo to accompany the most significant and joyful moments of my life.
