Description

Price from: £250

Sit back, kick off your shoes, pour yourself a glass of something expensive and relax to the smooth, sleek sound of Nightfall, an acoustic jazz duo/trio who can soothe your troubles away with a portfolio of uplifting jazz, soul and lounge classics. Nightfall comprise Sara (vocals), Malcolm (guitar) and Paul (sax) all with decades of performance experience from the smokey cocktail bars of Soho to the Edinburgh Festival, with Nightfall you are in first class hands and are guaranteed a night to remember.

Sara's voice is best described by those who have heard her live as: "timeless", "beautiful", "exquisite", "a stunning vocal ability, perfection". She has been singing for over 20 years and in that time has been wowing audiences both across the UK and internationally.

Paul has been stunning audiences across the world with his "Getz" inspired sax improv style for over 40 years. With venues such as the Jersey Opera House, Malta's BJ's Jazz Club and Bermuda's Princess Hotel under his belt, whether its soprano swing or smooth tenor style, with Paul you are guaranteed a jazz sax treat.

Malcolm has been playing guitar since he saw Hank Marvin live with his red Strat. His gentle finger picking style and inventive solos are his musical signature and provide the perfect accompaniment to Sara's vocals.

Nightfall have played a range of impressive venues including The Ivy, Savoy Hotel, HMS Wellington, Jazz After Dark Soho, 229 Club, Jukes Jazz Bar, Raymond Blanc's "White" Brasserie, Cafe Rouge, Luna Lounge and a wide array of weddings, festivals, private parties and events.

Nightfall played at my retirement party and they set the mood beautifully. Sara has an amazing jazz tone to her voice and Malcolm's guitar playing was great. They really helped create a relaxed atmosphere and the guests appreciated their talents. They were professional and friendly, I would certainly recommend to anyone.

It was really lovely to have Nightfall playing at Patron Cave a Manger restaurant. Our customers and the team really enjoyed the music and we hope you will be back soon.

Two very accomplished musicians. Easy listening. Sarah has a beautiful voice backed up by Malcolm's great skills on the guitar. Our event was my 60th birthday party and an excellent choice for the event.
