Jazz bands

Jazz bands are ideal for providing an relaxed, informal ambience, or, as featured entertainment either in a listening or dance situation.
We can provide everything from a jazz duo and a 5-piece New Orleans style Marching Band to a 16-piece big band....all featuring the highest quality musicians and vocalists. 
You build the jazz band according to your requirements - it can be instrumental (Rod Patterson Jazz Bands, Bradley's Stompers) or vocal (Siobhan Pettit Jazz bands, Nightswing).
