The Mulberries are a vibrant jazz outfit comprised of some of the finest, distinguished professional musicians. As well as having a polished, extensive repertoire of traditional jazz songs – from Miles Davis, Frank Sinatra and John Coltrane, through to Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock and Bill Evans – they are also experts in contemporary jazz and adapting popular modern songs to a jazz aesthetic, with some exciting twists. When not filling event spaces with their unique sounds, these experienced session musicians can be found backing high profile artists such as Geno Washington, Izo Fitzroy, Cat Stevens, Scroobius Pip, and Suzi Quatro, as well as composing, recording and performing jaw-dropping original music. With a choice of line-up; duo, trio, quintet and sextet – instrumental or with accompanying vocals – The Mulberries provide authentic jazz music adaptable for any event size, style and budget. Whether you’re after a quiet, dignified band for background ambience, or lively, uplifting jazz to dance to, this outfit’s wealth of experience and professionalism is what you’re looking for.

Customer questions

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

Our band is made up of various professional session players with years of experience. Depending on availability, band members may vary slightly for each line up. We choose from a pool of the best available musicians for each date to form the band.

Do you have different line-up options?

We have various line ups from solo guitar or keys to full 6 piece band. Our trio and quartet options are the most popular. Trio usually comprises of bass, percussion and keys, plus saxophone if opting for quartet. We can also add vocals with top quality function singers, as well as offering instrumental jazz performances.

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 let us know and we will do our best to accommodate, but we cannot guarantee as this depends on musician availability if timings massively change.

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

Yes we can provide this included in the quote. We can offer an extra DJ service after the live performance at an additional cost depending on your requirements. Please ask for further info.

How much time do you need to set up?

60-90 mins for full band

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to suit the vibe of the event. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we tailor our set to your requirements where possible.

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

Yes PA and lighting is provided in the quote for small to medium venues. If your venue is particularly large or you are expecting a big crowd please do let us know as we may need to hire an additional PA system at an extra cost.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We like to choose our set lists on the day and adapt them to suit the vibe of the event. If you have any specific requests please let us know and we would be happy to discuss, as we may already know them. If we need to learn a new song from scratch we would have to charge for additional rehearsal time for the band.

I really enjoyed the Mulberries Jazz performance. Amazing vibe from such accomplished musicians in a really sophisticated, acoustically friendly bar restaurant. Sax, keys, drums and bass playing standards and creating an enjoyable uptempo atmosphere. Truly amazing!
