Two sets of 45-60 minutes each (often the first set is slightly slower in tempo, the second faster), is a typical choice, but this can be varied according to individual requirements. The addition of a bass player (with a stand-up double bass) will enhance the look and sound and we can include a drummer to make up a trio or quartet. If you’ve picked an auspicious date we can include our star special guest, Jon Scott, on trumpet.
Our set lists comprise a wide range of jazz styles and songs, from the 1920s through to the modern day, but you could focus on a special theme, such as Great Jazz Divas, Speakeasy/Roaring 20s, The Music of Broadway, Dinner Jazz, Swing Time or The Great American Song Book.
