With a car battery, a torch, a fire and rusty instruments came an almost musical sound from the depths of Tehidy Woods.
As though in a bizarre shamanic cult ritual, every year on the same night the members would assemble each time drawing more energy and increasing their powers until from the earth ANIMAL I was born.
A blend of Space Jazz, Punk, Funk, Rock and Tribal Rhythms is the result.

Hey Javier just want to say a big thank you for the amazing performance at our wedding on Sunday. Each and everyone we spoke to had no words to express how great it was, how much they loved the music and you guys. Thank you for your flexibility with the set. I know we made you change the timings to suit our plans, but it worked amazingly well, and we are so thankful for it.
Hi, The night and day collective were absolutely amazing!!!!!
Wonderful people, gorgeous music and it all really worked well with the venue.
Thank you to the Night and Day collective for starting off the celebrations and contributing the best day of my life!!!
I hope i get a chance to hear their wonderful playing again.
Thank you 100 times for being part of the day, it was perfect xx
We used Giardino strings for our evening candle lit Christmas wedding service a couple of weeks ago and to say they made it magical would be an understatement ...David was professional to deal with, worth every penny and both he and his partner were fantastically talented. They required very little input from me other than the song choices and played unaccompanied throughout the whole service. I wanted a very old Victorian style wedding and they made it for me...sheer class and memorable to say the least...hire them without hesitation!!
Tips on choosing jazz bands in Cornwall for your wedding or function event
Jazz has long been considered to be one of the best music over the years. So great that most jazz musicians will spend learning theory alongside developing advanced playing techniques, simply to get the best in this fascinating musical genre. If you are in Cornwall, this is not new to you. Jazz bands in Cornwall play in theaters, night clubs and even on the streets. It’s thrilling and captivating especially when played with the right band. I guess you are wondering what a jazz band is. Read On!
It’s difficult to put in words, but let’s give it a try. Remember jazz Legend Louis Armstrong says: “If you have to ask what jazz is, you’ll never know.” Let’s say it’s the interaction between performer and listener. It’s the interaction of feelings that can’t be expressed by words, it’s the inner feel as though the music speaks to you, if you can feel the performer’s emotions and what he’s trying to express, that is what is called jazz.
A jazz band is a bunch of musicians who enjoy the singing any kind of jazz music. They are performers and also entertainers who take part in making your night or day through different great jazz music. For instance, traditional jazz, contemporary jazz, progressive jazz, Dixieland jazz and modern jazz are some of the jazz music that jazz bands play.
This variety of jazz band music calls for choice. You need to choose the correct band that will suit your event or even satisfy your day. In Cornwall, most jazz band performs in parties, events and even night clubs just to entertain people. In order to choose the right correct jazz band, here is what you need to know about jazz band Cornwall.
The sole purpose of jazz band is to entertain. If it doesn’t, then it’s not a true jazz band. In London great jazz bands have proven to break the norms and get to improvisation of the real music. Improvisation is truly the heart of jazz music. This is when a performer forgets what is written on the page by the composer and begins to speak with his instruments from his head and heart. It relieves true emotions and unleashes that inner feeling and desire of a certain topic. Finding a jazz band for your event in Cornwall is very easy but tricky. Here is what you need to know.
· What kind of jazz does the band play? You should be able to relate your event with the kind of music that you want. This way you will be able to narrow down.
· Is the band certified-the band should be able to provide papers in order to understand who is playing or entertaining you.
· Experience and background- check that the band consists of highly qualified musicians with strong track record of playing at prestigious corporate events or at high quality wedding events. You can do this by reviewing them on their site or even gathering information from previous audience.
· What type of instruments do they use? Normally, a qualified band should use quality PA instruments that will match your event.
· Ensure they have an agency you can backup if anything goes wrong. This will help you get a refund or file charges in case of anything.
· Cost- cost is everything. You can’t spend or get entertained if you cannot afford. Have plans and choose the correct bands that you can easily afford. Additionally, don’t use short cuts unless you don’t mind risking the success of your event. Remember, cheap is always expensive.
Jazz bands can be hired for.
· Wedding ceremonies
· Birth day parties
· Motor Racing Events
· Garden parties
· Charismas parties
· Jazz Festivals
Lastly, you can always get the right Jazz band Cornwall if only you understand what you need in your event. Don’t worry if you are not knowledgeable about jazz. Tell the jazz bandleader or agent the tunes you like and the artists you like.
