Customer questions

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Frank Sinatra, Ella Fiztgerald, Nat King Cole, Postmodern Jukebox.

Do you have different line-up options?

Yes. Our standard line up is 6 piece - vocals, keyboard (or piano if your venue has one), double bass, drums, trumpet and sax. We can also perform as a 5 piece, quartet or trio.

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

We are very flexible and will adapt as much as possible on the day. The contract will state a latest end time and an earliest start time. If you need to change these, 90% of the time, we can do so - the only time it would be a problem is if we are going to another event from there (or are coming from another booking.)

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


How much time do you need to set up?

If it's the full 6 piece we ask for 2 hours. We are usually done more quickly, but this gives us time to allow for any difficulties we may encounter with different venues. The trio can be set up in 75 minutes.

Can you roam around while you perform?

Yes . . . if we perform an acoustic set. We often change the line up for this so we may add jazz guitar instead of keyboard.

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

You can make one special request that we will learn specifically for you. Then you are also welcome to choose some favourites from our set list.

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

PA is. Lighting isn't included but we can add this on as an extra if you wish.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes - we ask for a months notice please.

Jazz and the tonics were amazing at our diamond wedding anniversary party! They were professional, always easy and quick to communicate with and so personable! We would 100% hire them again and everyone has been speaking about how amazing the band were and Emily’s singing.

We hired Jazz and The Tonics to play our new office opening party and they were amazing! Since the event we have had so many compliments about the band and how good their performance was. They were very professional and communication was clear leading up to the event to make sure everything went smoothly. I can't recommend them enough and hope to see them perform again soon!

We found Jazz and the Tonics online and we loved them so much we booked them to Play at our wedding in Cornwall. Emily was fantastic with communication leading up to our wedding day and on the night their performance was fantastic! They learnt “our song” for our first dance “The Cure Love Song” in a jazz style and performed it beautifully! A lovely group of people and top class musicians who we would not hesitate in hiring again xx (10 / 10)
