About Jazz 'n' Dave

Evergreen and modern jazz classics from a superb Saxophone/Guitar duo, providing a high class ambience for bars, restaurants, functions etc.
Jazz duo
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Sometimes an event needs musicians for a subtle performance, providing a certain ambience, attitude and atmosphere... - who can read the room and ensure the music is fully appropriate... - who can work with the organisers to plan and coordinate their contribution to the event... - who have years of experience as players, having gigged throughout the UK and in Europe... - who are personable, presentable and professional. If jazz is the flavour you are looking for, Jazz 'n' Dave could be the solution for you. Steve and David have played, both together and apart, in jazz and function bands over many years - room filling acts. Now they have scaled down their act to a duo, playing in the space where lounge pianists, solo guitarists and singers also work. Saxophone/Guitar duos may not be unique, but they are certainly unusual - a different and tasty flavour!

Cannot recommend Steve and Dave enough! They were exactly what we were after, relaxed background jazz at our wedding reception. They were communicative and easy to work with, we weren't there when they arrived but they took instruction via whatsapp and everything went perfectly. All our guests commented on how good they were, we were really happy we'd chosen them to play!

Thanks Helena. We had a good time playing for your guests, glad they liked it. Congratulations on your wedding - and a very well organised one at that!

We enjoyed your playing at the drinks reception following our wedding. The two of you made a terrific sound and made a small occasion feel great! Thank you both.
