Jazz Band Hire, Bath, Bristol & Avon

Jazz band Hire around Bristol, Bath & Bradford On Avon  

Jazz band hire * Top UK  jazz musicians * Discounts for regular bookings around Bath, Bristol & Avon

Jazz band hire, from solo saxophone to quintet. The perfect way to add some toe-tapping, swinging sophistication to your drinks reception, or a warm background atmosphere to your dinner.

Over 15  years experience providing live jazz for a wide variety of events including: corporate functions, drinks receptions, weddings, birthdays, house and garden parties, exhibitions and product launches.

We are hired frequently to preform at London’s most prestigious hotels, members’ clubs and event venues, such as The Reform Club, The RAC, the Dorchester, the Lanesbourgh and The Royal Opera House.

I only work with the very best musicians, many of whom are conservatoire trained graduates from the Royal Acadamy and Guildhall. All the musicians I work with are highly experienced and are currently active members of some of the country leading jazz groups. All my fellow musicians have preformed worldwide at venues like the Royal Festival Hall, The Royal Albert Hall and Ronnie Scotts.

What sets us apart?  Why you should choose us to play for your special occasion

Many function bands seem to have forgotten the reason they originally started playing. I am a firm believers in bringing the same energy and creativity that you would expect to hear in a world class jazz club, but at a volume where people can easily talk and mingle. We love our job and want to contribute to making your event a very special and memorable occasion!!

No agency fees!!

This is not a music agency. Agents usually take a large cut for securing the work. I take a £50 booking fee to cover the organisation and the rest is split evenly between the musicians. This way everyone is happy. We get a fair wage and you get a swinging jazz band at a fraction of the price. If you prefer to go through an agency, or require other services. I work for an excellent company called JSO who can help plan your event.

The South West Jazz Collective 

I have recently relocated to Somerset and now live between Bath and Bristol but still travel up to London regularly for work. I'm connecting with some of the best jazz musicians in the southwest so can put a great local jazz band together or call on my London colleagues. The prices below are for local jazz band hire but we are happy to travel so please get in touch for a quote.

“A wonderful night, some important guests, an impressive location, but it was John’s music to deliver the true magic touch.

John and his band played for us a great collection of Jazz music giving an extra flavour to an already special evening. A perfect harmony of notes, a well balanced band and a very elegant style.

I would strongly recommend John and his team and I will be looking forward to working with him in the near future”
