Thank you so much for helping to make my daughter's wedding reception such a memorable day. The 3 piece band, who performed a delightful selection of well known jazz pieces, sounded amazing, looked so smart and were talked about by so many of the guests. They struck exactly the right tone my daughter was hoping for at her wedding and we can't thank them enough.
Mat, whom I dealt with from the first contact, was very professional and i would not hesitate to recommend this incredible band to anyone looking to add a 'touch of class' to their celebrations.

A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
All blues
All of me
All the things you are
Angel eyes
Autumn leaves
Bewitched
Beautiful love
Black Orpheus
Blue bossa
Body and soul
Bye bye blackbird
Can’t get started
Cheek to cheek
Come fly with me
Desifanado
Don’t get around much anymore
Don’t worry about me
Drop me off in Harlem
Everything happens to me
Embraceable you
Exactly like you
Fly me to the moon
Foggy day
Gee baby ain’t I good to you
Georgia on my mind
Girl from impanima
Have you met Miss Jones
I got rhythm
I love you
I remember you
In a sentimental mood
It had to be you
I've never been in love before
Let there be love
Let’s fall in love
Like someone in love
Lover Man
Lullaby of Birdland
Misty
Moondance
My funny valentine
Night and day
On green dolphin street
One note samba
Our love is here to stay
So what
Softly as a morning sunrise
Someday my prince will come
Song for my farther
Stella by starlight
St. Thomas
Stormy Monday
Summertime
Takin' a chance on love
Take the A train
Take 5
Unforgettable
What is this thing called love
What’s new
You made me love you
You make me feel so young

And many more.
