The Pendulum Quartet believe in quality - this is why we offer jazz and swing only. No post-modern jukebox, no pop or rock 'n' roll - just The Great American Songbook is all it's old time glory, by musicians who have studied and dedicated their lives to the art form. Nothing beats the glamour and good times of the swinging 20's or the roaring 40's. Whether you're "Stomping at The Savoy" or "Puttin' on The Ritz", The Pendulum Quartet are the right choice to have you swinging into the wee hours of the morning. Available also as a duo, trio or quintet on request.

The Pendulum Quartet's Song list

Fly me to the moon
Stompin at the savoy
Puttin' on the Ritz
After you've gone
In the wee small hours of the morning
Maha de carnaval
All of me
Anything goes
Autumn leaves
As time goes by
At last
C'est si bon
I'll close my eyes
Bye bye blackbird
lullaby of birdland
cheek to cheek
'Deed I do
Don't get around much anymore
Easy to love
If I were a bell
The days of wine and roses
Georgia on my mind
The girl from Ipanema
I can't give you anything but love
Nature boy
I'm beginning to see the light
Easy to love
The song is you
It don't mean a thing
The way you look tonight
Moon river
Lady be good
Love for sale
There's a small hotel
Night and day
Pennies from heaven
Have you met Miss Jones?
'Round midnight
Slow boat to China
On the sunny side of the street
What a difference a day made
There will never be another you
Only a paper moon
The lady is a tramp
The nearness of you
The more I see you
Straighten up and fly right
A nightingale sang in Berkley Square
London by night
Singin in the rain
Customer questions

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

Absolutely! The Pendulum Quartet is based around the vocals of Tara Minton. If your event is on a date that Tara is unavailable, we will be upfront and give you the option of booking the band with one of our hand picked dep singers, or choosing another act.

Do you have different line-up options?

Absolutely. The Pendulum Quartet is also available as a piano/vocal duo, piano/bass/vocal trio or with a horn player. There is also the option of piano/bass/drums trio without vocals.

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

We're friendly and eager to help. Send us a message and we can come to an agreement that works for everyone.

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


How much time do you need to set up?

We aim to arrive one hour before the event is due to begin to be set up and ready to go.

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

Of course, though choosing an entire 2 hours of music is a big job! We're old hands at curating a set list that perfectly compliments the mood of the room - leave it to us and if there's anything you really want to hear, we're happy to play it for you.

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

Our PA is included in our quote. We do not have lighting.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Absolutely, but only one or two.

I saw Tara and the band performing at The Corinthia Bassoon Bar in London. They were superb! I know my jazz and these guys are the real deal.

I recently heard you playing at The Langham Hotel and was very impressed with your music.
