Call me irresponsible
Come fly
Come rain or shine

How high the moon
Honeysuckle Rose
How deep is the Ocean
I can't give you anything but love
I’m Sitting on Top of the World
I left my heart in Samn Francisco
I Could Write A Book
I feel fine
I'm walkin
In a Mellow Tone
Is you is
Isn't it romantic
It Dont mean a thing
I thought about you
It’s alright with me
It had to be you

Frankly Jazz we’re absolutely brilliant at our wedding celebration party. Their music was just right, and so many of our guests commented on how good they were. They were such fun and a pleasure to listen and dance to. They sorted themselves out (setting up) with all the plugs and sockets, so we just left them to it. We shall recommend Frankly Jazz to everyone.

Hi Marcus! Thanks so much for last night, we had an amazing time and all the guests said how great you were! You really got the dance floor moving, and we can’t thank you enough for the beautiful (and then lively!) arrangement of ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ for our first dance. Absolutely perfect night! Eleanor and Matthew
