Over The Top are a jazz trio formed by three professional musicians who love to perform. The group consists of Ollie on Bass, Tom on Guitar and Toby on Trumpet, hence the name OTT. All three are experienced jazz artists with friendly demeanours to match who will endeavour to always put on the best show that they can. Their set list is extensive comprising over 100 tunes from the jazz and pop genres. This list covers songs from the 30's swing era right up to modern day hits. The trio is based in London and is able to transport itself. We have all our own equipment, all we require for any gig is access to a power supply. We look forward to your enquiry.
