About Lady be Good

Jazz band
Birmingham
Public liability insurance of £5 million
8 piece all female jazz ensemble with guest male vocalist, bringing vintage jazz together with modern pop. Saxophones galore!

Lady be Good is an ensemble with a difference. Fronted by the Giocoso Saxophone Quartet, this all female 8 piece line-up of vocals, 4 saxes, piano, bass and drums can provide the sounds of the big bands through to pop classics for dancing. Our repertoire covers 100 years of music, from Fats Waller and Gershwin through to Adele and Caro Emerald. If you prefer the rat pack sound, we are happy to invite one of our favourite male vocalists as guest singer.

Customer questions

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

Our primary video shows our current singers, with the older video featuring our previous singer. We would not take a booking with a different vocalist without discussing options with you first. In the event of illness of either singer on the day of an event, we have a number of exceptional guests available to ensure your event goes as planned.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our instrumental line-up is 4 saxes, piano, bass and drums with male and female vocalists. We can perform as a purely instrumental ensemble for background music if you prefer too.

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

No problem. We may need to discuss if your change in timings means we have to stay after midnight, but we are very flexible otherwise.

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

Absolutely. You can provide your own, or for a negotiable additional fee (depending on timings) we can run one for you till the end of your event.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up 2 hours before the performance to give us time to sound check before guests arrive and then glam up :)

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

Of course. We know how important it is to set the right atmosphere for your event. Our setlist has quiet and gentle through to fun and lively, so needs to be tailored to your event.

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

Yes

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes we can. However, most songs need to be specially arranged so we would typically add on £50 to cover expenses. If it is the first dance at your wedding we will throw that in free of charge though. We want your day to be special!

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Clients love the sophisticated style we bring, as well as the top class musicianship. Our vocalists bring an air of cheeky fun when required or spine tingling moments of quietness.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Lots of hotels to be honest. We play twice a year at the Jazzamatazz club in Coventry. Contact us for more details and if you'd like to see us in action

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, Caro Emerald to name but a few.

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

Probably the Lib Dem post-conference party, with John Hemming MP as our guest piano player!

Emma M, 8 months ago

An absolutely outstanding gig today. Thank you all so much. Honestly, I'm not just saying it, today I had the best feedback I've had after any gig. Awesome. So many happy faces.

Mr W, 2 years ago

Charlotte and I would like to thank all of you at Lady Be Good for your performance, you were utterly fantastic and exactly what we wanted and hoped for. We have had a lot of comments on how amazing you guys were. Your performance of “Make you feel my love” which we danced to, was something that we will remember for the rest of our lives. Again thank you so much for making our special day even more special Thanks Mr and Mrs Wood (10 / 10)
