Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

They love the atmosphere it brings to their events as well as the quality of musicianship from the band.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

To name a few, I have performed at the Royal Albert Hall as part of the BBC Proms, 'We Out Here' Jazz Festival main stage with the Mathew Herbert Big Band, Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club with various groups and more recently the Qatar 2022 World Cup with 'The White Keys'!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

My primary influence was Chet Baker, being a trumpet player myself he was the role model I had for combining singing & playing. I am also a huge fan of vocalists such as Harry Connick Jr. and Tony Bennett, and trumpet players such as Till Bronner.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

I would have to say the Fifa Fan Festival at the Qatar World Cup in 2022, we were playing on a stage the size of Glastonbury to a crowd of about 30,000 people it was a truly incredible experience.

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

Yes, the singer will always be the same!

Do you have different line-up options?

The line-up can vary all the way from a duo (guitar & vocal/trumpet) to quintet (drums, bass, piano, guitar, vocal/trumpet).

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

Timings can be flexible as long as you give us sufficient notice (24 hours etc.).

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


How much time do you need to set up?

Somewhere between an hour/hour and a half.

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

You are welcome to select your favourites from the song list, although we will generally craft the exact set list ourselves.

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

Yes - we can provide a small PA, we do not provide our own lighting.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We will accept a single song request (of songs we don't already know), for situations such as first dance/birthday song etc.
