Who we are

We’ve known this jazz band for many years and have seen performances of their traditional as well as standard jazz sets. Every time, we’ve been in awe of their talent, how they ‘feel’ the music and all gel together – really impressive. Whether you’re having a garden party, drinks reception, corporate function or wedding, these guys fit the bill. They can start from a two-piece piano and saxophone duo or expand up to a five-piece by adding trumpet, bass and drums. Therefore you can experience the quality and choose a size to fit your budget.

What people say about us

"We would like to send our sincere thanks to the Jazz Duo. They were absolutely fantastic at our wedding; the background music that they played was perfect. They were so professional but very friendly. We had some lovely comments from our guests, they really enjoyed the music, they were a true highlight to our day."
Claire and Mark Knox, Wedding, Brands Hatch

"I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the guys for playing.... they sounded wonderful. It was exactly what we wanted to hear. A lot of our guests were surprised and have asked where you play, I have given them the details and hopefully they will tag along one Sunday afternoon."
Danielle and Ross, Wedding

"On all occasions I have found them to conduct themselves in a very professional manner.  During the run-up they ensured I was aware of all of their requirements so that there were no last minute surprises, and during the events their attention to detail ensured their performance was not only faultless, but provided outstanding entertainment to our audience."
Lloyd Bonson, Phoenix 98FM
