Unforgettable performance! Nightfall performed at my husband’s 40th Dinner party at the Savoy - with about 20 guests. The guests included a spectrum of musical tastes - from avid jazz fans to musically indifferent as well as ages from 6 to 80 but we all UNANIMOUSLY enjoyed Nightfall’s performance. Sarah’s singing is even more beautiful in person and the saxophone and guitarists were just amazing. They played all the great classics and set a mesmerising atmosphere through the bright. It was such a wonderful performance - exactly how I dreamed it. Absolutely made the party and all the guests just loved it. Their experience and passion shone through and they clearly do this for the love of music. So impressed by the quality and professionalism. Before the event, Sarah called to go through details And they arrived about 2 hours in advance to set up and prepare ahead of the surprise entrance. They also ran over time which was unplanned - but were very flexible and supportive with our requirements. Was a pleasure working with you and would absolutely choose you again!

Couldn't be happier with the booking of Nightfall. Like true professionals they arrived with plenty of time to set up and get the space ready. Music was the correct tone for the event and the right level of interaction with the audience making a great night. Was the first time we'd put on a event at Neighour and Nightfall's communication and professionism made it a stress free experience. We even had a celeb in, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (the King Slayer from GoT). Would definitely book again.

Nightfall made our evening with a lovely intimate performance. Vocals, guitar and sax mingled perfectly and gave a bouquet of good taste and after taste just like exquisite wine.

Nightfall Jazz Trio / Acoustic Duo's Song list

Fly me to the moon
Lullaby of birdland
You make me feel so young
I've got you under my skin
Miss Celie's Blues
Girl from Ipanema
Aint no sunshine
Autumn leaves
La vie en rose
You are so beautiful
Don't know why
Everytime we say goodbye
Mack the knife
Aint nobody
Damn your eyes
Lullaby in ragtime
Memories are made of this
Somewhere over the rainbow
It doesn't matter anymore
Penny to my name
Black is the colour
Will ye go
Winter wonderland
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Killing me softly
You've got a friend
Make you feel my love
At last
Black coffee
Aint misbehavin'
Tu vao Americano
Basin St blues
Take 5
Sunny side of the street
Making Whoopee
Mercedez Benz
Red is the rose
She moved through the fair
All of me
Funny Valentine
Anything goes
He's a tramp
The lady is a tramp
Cry me a river
Dream a little dream
Don't speak
It's only a paper moon
Let there be love
Lover man
Love me or leave me
Wild is the wind
Love letters
More than you know
That old devil called love
Up a lazy river
What'll I do
You're nobody 'til somebody loves you
Smoke gets in your eyes
Danny boy
Smoke gets in your eyes
Fields of gold
Back to black
Will you still love me tomorrow
Stormy weather
Scarborough fair
Gentle on my mind
Amazing grace
Stormy Monday
Bare Necessities
L'un part l'autre reste
Singing in the rain
Song for my father
Stop this train
What'll I do
This I promise you
What a wonderful world
My baby just cares for me
Tea for two
When the saints go marchin' in
The nearness of you
Lush life
Don't get around much anymore
Cry me a river
How much do I love you
East of the sun
Embraceable you
Hallelujah I just love her so
Will you go lassie go
September in the rain
What a difference a day makes
Smoke gets in your eyes
Moon river
All of me
I'm glad there is you
I will always love you

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

We come either as an acoustic duo (vocals and guitar) or trio (saxophone, vocals and guitar)

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

If timings change in the run up to your event just let us know, we try to be as flexible as possible. The more notice you give, the more easily we can accommodate the change.

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

Yes, we subscribe to Spotify so we could put a set list together of suitable music at your request.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually only need 20 minutes to set up - one of the benefits of being an acoustic duo!

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

Yes of course - you can choose which songs you would like and leave it to us to create the right mood for your event.

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

Yes absolutely. We have our own amps, mics, cables and stands.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

If a song isn't on our set list we may still know it so it's always worth asking. We can also learn specific songs if we are given enough notice as we like to create our own unique arrangements and that takes time.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our reviews say it all! We have been described as sleek and professional, delivering a smooth and relaxing feel for events. Customers have commented that within minutes of Nightfall starting to play, they have felt relaxed, calm and happy. A recent client described us as "timeless".
