- Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern.
I have a large classical rep and have grade 8 distinction and a lot of orchestral and chamber experience - fluent sight reader.
- Bebop, Straight Ahead, Manouche, Swing, Blues, Funk, Soul.
I have a vast jazz repertoire. This includes American song book classics, modern Jazz and Gypsy Jazz tunes. I am fluent at chord chart reading in all keys.
I'm always open to requests! Whether to play you down the aisle, for your first dance, or just because you like a particular song! Just give me a little time before the event to polish up on the arrangement :)
What do your clients love most about your performances?
I usually bring a fun, charming group of band mates, and we play in a super sophisticated - but hopefully not too stuffy! - way. We love what we do, and love to entertain! But we also take what we do very seriously.
Which artists have you been most influenced by?
Django Reinhardt, Bela Bartok, Joe Henderson, Joe Pass, Stephane Grapelli.
Do you have different line-up options?
Anything you want! I have a large network of top notch musicians, and am happy to fix any particular band for your event, as long as it lies within the Jazz or Classical realm!
What if my timings change after I've booked you?
I'll 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.
How much time do you need to set up?
This varies a lot, however I'll always aim to arrive in good time. An average of 30 mins should be plenty.
Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?
Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?
Yep! Although sometimes we will need electricity from the venue.
Can you learn specific pieces before the event?
Absolutely, just ask and I'll learn it :) as long as its not an insanely complicated modern jazz tune which cycles through a different odd time signature every bar, or a super modern atonal classical piece, I'll be more than happy to learn it for you!
