Jazz is a word that can describe swing from the 1920s and 30s, trad jazz, jazz funk, Dixieland jazz and gypsy jazz – just a few of the subgenres our jazz bands in Essex dabble in. The jazz fanatics among your guests may recognise a few jazz standards added to the Great American Songbook by the likes of Cole Porter, Ira and George Gershwin and Irving Berlin – and the rest of your guests will be delighted to hear some jazzy renditions of popular artists from outside the genre, such as Michael Jackson, Rihanna, Oasis and Daft Punk. Many of our Essex jazz bands are also fronted by some of the best vocalists in the game – jazz singers modelling their voices after such legends as Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr, Dinah Washington and Nina Simone.

We have Essex acoustic duos, solo jazz guitarists and jazz pianists for quieter, more intimate exchanges of vows, and drum-fuelled jazz trios, jazz quartets and 9-10 members swing bands with brass sections and backing singers to boot for bigger bashes. If you’re still struggling to find something that fits your remit in terms of budget and venue size, our flexible and accommodating jazz bands in Essex can adjust their line ups, delivering instead a jazz lounge, cocktail or acoustic set.
