We provide music for wedding receptions, garden parties, birthdays, private and corporate events, and other functions. If you’re thinking of hiring a band for your venue or event, there are some suggested lineups below. Please get in touch if you need some help deciding what would work best for your occasion, or to ask about prices.
A duo of double bass with either guitar or piano provides the perfect background music for smaller, more intimate functions. We perform a varied repertoire of jazz and contemporary arrangements that are particularly well suited to a duo format.
“Marianne it has been an absolute pleasure to have you play here at the Hengist Restaurant. You have offered a first class service with a wonderful variety of music. We hope you to see you again in the near future.”
Ideal for a variety of occasions, the trio of piano, double bass and drums is a classic and well loved combination. Also available with guitar instead of piano, the trio play a repertoire of straight-ahead jazz standards from composers such as Miles, Monk and Ellington and the beautiful Bossa Nova reportoire of Jobim.
“We really appreciated your coming to play so beautifully and professionally for us!”
With the addition of saxophone or trumpet, this is our most popular lineup for slightly larger parties or events, which can benefit from the musical variation and texture of the additional instrument.
“What a night! You were all playing so well, and the interplay between you was very stimulating – each person was distinctive and themselves yet making adjustments for each other constantly – really lovely to have experienced it. If I was in charge of new year honours I’d give you all an MBE!”
Whether you’re into Sinatra or Diana Krall, a hot band with a fabulous singer is perfect for a party or wedding where the combination of classic swing, Latin, blues, soul and funk music gets everyone in the mood and onto the dance floor! Available in various band sizes – please call us to discuss your requirements.
