It’s a Jazz Life
A tailor-made musical package to suit your needs
Whether it’s sophisticated swing or mellow, romantic ballads…
This band is the ideal choice for your special event. Providing the perfect accompaniment for meals and drinks receptions, this saxophone led group play a selection of jazz and swing standards made famous by artists including Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and the Dave Brubeck Quartet.
Alongside this, they also perform many songs from the great American song writers of the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s such as Jimmy Van Heusen, George and Ira Gershwin, Rodgers and Hart and Cole Porter.
Available as either a duo, trio or quartet depending on the size of your venue (and budget), the band offers a wealth of options to provide you with a tailor-made musical package to suit your needs.
The duo can also provide a well chosen selection of light classical music (performed on clarinet and piano), perfect for before, after or even during a wedding service.
Having been working together since 2001, the band has performed for a wide variety of audiences throughout the South West, including smaller, intimate parties of just 20 people up to groups of over 500 people at venues such as the English Riviera Centre, Powderham Castle and the Imperial and Grand Hotels in Torquay.

From Our Clients
“Many thanks for some great playing at my dad’s birthday on Saturday evening, it was a total surprise for him and he loved it, as did the rest of us there. It made the evening very special, please pass my thanks to your guitarist as well (after all that wine and ale I’ve forgotten his name!).”
“Thanks SO much for last night. The part was everything we wanted and more. We had a great great laugh and the vibe was fantastic. Sarah loved it all. I think the things that made it were the people -of course- and the music. You got it spot on with how to play it and loads of people said how much they enjoyed Lush Life. Hannah liked it a lot too. The sound was great and just what we hoped for.”
“Thanks so much for the Jazz trio that played at Adam’s party at Hallsannery on Saturday – you were great. Many of the guests have commented that you set just the right tone and created a great ambience. Thanks for helping to make the party a success.”
“Thank you so much for providing the music for Saturday. We had so many compliments about your accompanying music. The weather was kind to us and even worked in our favour thanks for setting up again in the marquee”
“Careful thought was taken in finding the right band and genre of music that would compliment our formal charity dinner held at Britannia Royal Naval College. They provided a superb tailored set of soft jazz and virtuoso performances which delighted the guests. A rich performance, utilising the natural acoustic qualities of the quarterdeck for the reception was followed, after dinner, with a cosy intimate set in the Senior Gunroom bar. They were simply outstanding, producing exactly what was required to make this special event so memorable. I cannot recommend them highly enough”
“Thank you so much for all your efforts both in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself. The music was just brilliant and so many people mentioned you all afterwards Our guests were brilliantly entertained by you and you really set the tone for the day. Sad it is all over.”
