We know literally hundreds of instrumentals and songs in various jazz styles, too many to list! We usually perform a selection from these styles, offering something for everyone. Here's an outline of our repertoire.
JAZZ STANDARDS by Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, and popular tunes from Broadway shows and films of the 1920s-1950s. Instrumentals such as Take Five, Bye Bye Blackbird and so on; too many well-known jazz tunes to list here! Songs such as these:
I can't give you anything but love
Diamonds are a girl's best friend
Exactly like you
I'll be seeing you
I'll string along with you
I'm beginning to see the light
It had to be you
It's alright with me
Taking a chance on love
The nearness of you
You don't know what love is
JAZZ VERSIONS OF POP TUNES like "My baby just cares for me", "Dream a little dream of me", "Happy".
SWING tunes such as those made famous by Benny Goodman.
HOT CLUB SWING, associated with Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli.
LATIN JAZZ Bossa Nova, samba and Brazilian tunes by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Waldir Azevedo.
For trad jazz enthusiasts.
For themed events we can specialise.
Chansons by Georges Brassens, Jacques Brel, Edith Piaf and others.
Hot Club (Django Reinhardt style) swing instrumentals. For a cabaret or concert, or as background music for a French-style event.
Brazilian songs and instrumentals by Antonio Carlos Jobim and Waldir Azevedo, plus original Latin compositions by Charlie Hearnshaw.
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just contact us, we will adapt if we can - and (within reason!) we usually can.
Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?
Yes, we can play recorded music over our PA before and between sets.
How much time do you need to set up?
We usually set up about 1 to 1.5 hours before the performance time.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
We're happy to discuss your preferences and favourites before the event, to make sure we find what works best for you.
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
If there is a special piece of music you'd like us to learn, just ask. We may be able to do this, it 'll depend on how much time we have available, and how straightforward it is to find the music, or transcribe it, and on rehearsal time. There would be an extra charge for this service, we'd quote in advance.
