About Nell Greco and Pedro Velasco

Jazz duo
London
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Greco & Velasco have been playing songs from the swing era’s finest decades, after discovering a mutual appreciation of creative expression.

Nell Greco & Pedro Velasco have been performing the finest swing era songs together for decades. No, that’s not right. Rather, they’ve been performing songs from the swing era’s finest decades, together, after discovering a mutual appreciation of creative expression. Velasco takes inspiration from guitarists like Jim Hall and Gilad Hekselman, playing with a melodic sensitivity that allows loads of interaction and great musical conversations. On the other hand, Greco has been influenced by early jazz singers like Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald, but also taps into the playful expression of Sheila Jordan and soulfulness of Betty Carter. They perform swing and jazz standards, with a touch of Chanson Française, for good measure. “Nell is a hugely versatile vocalist with a warm, rich and distinctive personal style.” Kate Mullins, Vocalist and Puppini Sister

Thank you many times for coming all the way to Sopley to play for our wedding. Charlie and I absolutely loved your music and our guests too. Everyone kept asking where you're all from and how we found you. Your performance was a real highlight of our day and we are so grateful for this.

Great band. We were looking for something with a little class and a dash of style for a 50th birthday party. Nell and her band fitted the bill perfectly with some cool jazz and infectious gypsy swing. The band caught the mood perfectly and there was even spontaneous outbreaks of proper dancing! We chose the singer/guitar/double bass combo and this worked well - they looked great as well as sounding good too. Nell was a pleasure to deal with. No problems at all. Highly recommended. Thanks for a great evening.
