About Wave Duo

Whatever your event, Cláudia and Jackson will add a touch of class, transporting your audience to the shores of the Copacabana.
Jazz duo
London

Cláudia - a Portuguese jazz singer - and Jackson - an English multi-instrumentalist - met at a London jam session in August 2019 and realised their common love for Brazilian bossa nova. They quickly began performing the classics of the genre, exploring some gorgeous lesser-known tracks and developing original material too. From the moment they first took to the stage, the subtle sophistication of their Brazilian sound has held audiences spellbound. Wave Duo are the choice for you if you are looking for authentic sounding Brazilian or Latin Jazz, as well as the usual jazz standards. Whatever your event, Cláudia and Jackson will add a touch of class, transporting your audience to the shores of the Copacabana.

Customer questions

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard line-up is vocals and guitar. If required, Jackson can switch the guitar for keys, or alternate between guitar and keys during the set.

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

If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let us know in advance and we will try to accommodate for the changes.

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

Absolutely. We'll have a playlist ready to suit your event, but feel free to request any specific songs.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually need about 30 minutes to 1 hour to set up. Being a duo, we are able to do it discreetly and we can play one of our playlists through our PA to get your guests ready for our live performance.

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

Of course! We are happy to chat through your picks and make sure that together we find what works for your event.

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

Yes. Our quote includes PA, mic and guitar. Because we are a duo, we usually can adjust to relatively small spaces.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Definitely! Even if a song doesn't feature in our songlist, there's a chance we already know it. We might need to charge for any additional ones we know, depending on the song. However, we'll be happy to treat you to one song of your choosing, free of charge.

Claudia and Jackson opened for one of our gigs earlier this year. Their performance instantly captivated the audience and did a fantastic job of warming the crowd up. They also alleviated any nerves I had by transporting me to a blissful sandy beach for 20 minutes! A talented duo who I hope to share a stage with again someday.
