"What a fantastic band! We booked Down for the Count for a Charity Gala Ball, and what a wonderful addition to the event they were. All our guests made for the dance floor and were thoroughly entertained and I can't recommend them highly enough.

Delightful people and they certainly add value to your event."

Drinks Reception

Our jazz bands are perfect for drinks receptions – they look stunning and create a fantastic atmosphere, but are the right volume for your guests to chat and network.

Hollywood Jazz Band

For the ultimate stylish jazz band, look no further than the Hollywood Jazz Band – a fantastic ensemble that adds a touch of a glamour to your event.

Lady Gatsby Jazz Band

Lady Gatsby Jazz Band

For decadent 1920s-themed events, the Lady Gatsby Jazz Band and their speakeasy sets create a great musical backdrop.

Alexander's Dixieland Band

Or for something a bit different, Alexander’s Dixieland Band are an acoustic roaming band who move around your venue, entertaining guests wherever they happen to be.

Dinner Music

Jazz piano dinner music

During dinner, a cocktail pianist is perfect – creating a great atmosphere but not getting in the way of conversation.

Our pianist provides a digital piano, or you can hire a grand piano for an even better look and sound.

Awards ceremony

Stings for your Awards Ceremony

If you’re having an awards ceremony, talk to us about our award ceremony stings, which would normally be performed by your evening party band (see below).

We can create a bespoke programme of walk-on music – ask us about a recent awards ceremony we performed at for British Gymnastics, who were celebrating their 2016 Olympics success!

After the formalities are over, it’s time to let your hair down and party.
