Vintage Jazz Quartet

Foot-tapping light jazz which puts a smile on your face - that's what you get with our Vintage Jazz group. Focusing on early or "trad" jazz from the 1920s onwards, the group not only sound great but they look the part too, with a characterful, dapper image. With chinos, tweed jackets and bowties, the group are perfect for events with themes along the lines of prohibition, Great Gatsby, speakeasy etc. However, a themed event is not essential - they are a wonderful option for absolutely any drinks party, corporate dinner or private event where some cheery-but-cool music is required. It's difficult to listen to the Vintage Jazz band without a smile creeping across your face, and the group can perform entirely acoustically which means they are great for garden parties and other outdoor locations, providing sufficient shelter is provided and conditions are fine. Our musicians are professional session players with a great deal of experience, and you can immediately tell from watching them play that they enjoy what they do. If you're looking for a little bit of vintage charm for your event, you won't find a better way to create that atmosphere.
