The Jazzberries
Jazz / Swing Band

Jazz Band

From sophisticated, mellow jazz with cocktails to swing, jive and funky rhythms for dancing the night away - The Jazzberries Jazz Band can provide music to make your occasion truly special. 

Since 1996, The Jazzberries have brought together some of the best young talents on the London jazz scene to provide distinctive, quality jazz for parties and events throughout the UK.
The Jazzberries combine a professional approach - musicianship, punctuality and smart appearance - with a friendly manner and a lively sense of fun. 
This jazz band features between 3 and 8 players chosen from piano, double bass, drums, trumpet, saxophone, guitar, viola, vibraphone and female vocalist.
Their repertoire is based on classic tunes from greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, Louis Jordan and Antonio Carlos Jobim, plus well known standards by Gershwin, Cole Porter, Kern and Sondheim.

They move effortlessly from traditional swing and ballads, through bebop, latin jazz and jive to modern jazz and jazz-funk.  They are happy to stick to one or two styles and are more than willing to play requests.  The full 8-piece band can also play salsa, if requested in advance.
The Jazzberries have provided music for numerous private and public events including wedding receptions, corporate parties and PR events plus Christmas, New Year and Valentine Balls. 
From celebrities’ gardens to funky warehouses, marquees to stately homes, restaurants to nightclubs, they are happy to perform wherever the party is.  Though they usually play in and around London, they’ve also been booked as far a field as Manchester, Bournemouth, Sheffield and Devon.
