Entertaining audiences who are not essentially Jazz fans can be a problem for some jazz musicians. Not so this band. Stylistically they can change from out and out atavism to New Orleans R&B to swing in order to provide maximum entertainment.
They have long experience in playing for Dinner Dances, Fundraising Events and for guests at some of Switzerland's top hotels.
Dave says: "We half jokingly say that if a Jazz Band is hired for a wedding or party, only the person/couple hiring it, want it! It is therefore important to communicate musically with the guests. Apart from the odd one who insists you play some "heavy metal" most people can be won over and a great time is experienced".
For good value the band can be broken down into a trio for a drinks reception whilst the full band is more suitable for after-dinner dancing.
