Jazz Band Hire, Bath, Bristol & Avon

Jazz Band Hire Bath, Bristol and London

 

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.

20  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 UK's 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 believe 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 your event to be 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. We get a fair wage and you get a swinging jazz band at a fraction of the price. 

Jazz Band Hire In Somerset And The South West 

After 20 years working as a freelance saxophonist in London, I've relocated to Somerset. I 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're happy to travel anywhere in the UK, so get in touch for a quote.

    Noteworthy played as a trio at our wedding and were fantastic. Great selection of tracks tailored to our taste, played really … More well, and set the perfect mood. Exactly what we wanted. They even impressed all my jazz-loving friends. We had a slightly unusual format of the day involving moving location and they were exceptionally flexible and helpful. Great guys easy to work with and great jazz. Thanks!

    I booked John as a jazz duo for my mums surprise 80th birthday party, I was looking for just some gentle background music … More for friends & family to listen to as they enjoyed their high tea & that is exactly what I got, it added to a great atmosphere and made the party. Very professional, sounded excellent, with lots of great feedback from the guests. Highly recommend, would not hesitate to hire these guys again. Thank you, you made the afternoon perfect.

    I booked John as a Jazz duo with his fellow musician Rob for a Corporate Event in which our most senior executives were present. … More Their performance created the whole ambiance of the evening and captivated our guest’s right from the beginning to when our last guests left which was long after they were due to finish performing. John’s ability to read the target audience and deliver a mellow and memorable experience to all that attended was awe inspiring and the response from the guests was highly positive. His passion for his music speaks for itself and his professionalism and gentleman like demeanour meant it was an absolute pleasure to work with him. I would not think twice to book him and his fellow musicians for our future events and will be booking again very soon.

    We hired Noteworthy for a corporate summer drinks reception and they were the perfect condiment. Their jazz was not intrusive … More to conversations, it was gentle background music which provided a great atmosphere - just what we were after. Thanks John.
