Combinations of different ensembles (e.g, solo accordion early evening followed by trio later etc) available on request. Basic rate is £150 per musician, plus 15% booking fee and VAT charged on total, plus £10 travel expenses per musician, for a three-hour maximum call.

Any driving distance greater than 50 miles from SW8 5BP is charged at £200 per musician including above.

...This exciting new all-acoustic trio consists of three of London’s finest musicians, coming together from varying musical backgrounds to pay tribute to Parisian culture of the 20s and 30s with a heart-warming repertoire of Gypsy Jazz classics, American songbook standards, and maybe the odd

bal musette and Paso Doble thrown in for good measure!

We happened to see the duo version (accordion and upright bass) performing outdoors at a local market and enjoyed it so much we decided to hire the same format for our Sunday afternoon wedding party, held in the foyer of a Victorian-era town hall now used as an arts centre.

Their swinging tunes and gypsy-influenced sounds worked just as well indoors as background music, especially in the vintage atm...

We booked the trio for our combined 40th birthday and housewarming and they were a great choice. They were simply amazing! Their vintage acoustic sounds really set the party swinging and created such a lively atmosphere that even the rain didn't stop us from dancing in the garden! Highly recommended and would definitely book them again - really professional and exceptionally talented musicians!

The trio performed at our venue outdoors on the North Lawns for an afternoon wedding reception. Their style of music and performance was perfect for the venue and event. Halfway through it started to rain so we moved the event indoors and they were able to continue quite easily and quickly with a minimum of fuss. We thoroughly enjoyed their performance and look forward to booking them again for similar events in the near future.

    This is dependent on each performance, though a standard length would be a maximum of three sets of tunes in a three-hour time frame (ie forty-five minutes playing with a fifteen minute break, times three).

  • My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
    Yes if it fits in with the style of music we play.
  • How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
    This is also dependent on each performance, although we usually take a 15-20 minute break for a 45-50 minute set. Breaks would be no longer than 25 minutes.
