Classic Jazz Band Information

If you are searching for that “Classic” Jazz sound from the swing era of the 1930s through to the cool Blue Note grooves of 1960’s New York, then this is the Jazz Band for you!

Featuring music by the likes of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Duke Ellington, Bill Evans, Ella Fitzgerald, Stan Getz, Charlie Parker, Frank Sinatra, Horace Silver and Sonny Rollins plus many more, the Classic Jazz Band recreates those sublimely cool sounds with an unrivalled degree of accuracy and sense of style.

The Classic Jazz Band is a purely instrumental band with a play list that can be as lively or as relaxed as you like. This makes the band ideal as background music at sophisticated wedding receptions, drinks parties, dinners or corporate events. If you like those cool laid back west coast sounds of Stan Getz that is what you’ll get; if you adore the songs of Frank Sinatra (well who doesn’t?!) they will play those for you of course; or if you love it all that’s great as they do too!

The Classic Jazz Band is one of the busiest professional function bands active in London and the South East of England where they often have the privilege to perform at some of the capital’s most prestigious events. The jazz band has an unrivalled reputation amongst event organisers, wedding planners, venues and music agencies due to the high standard of their performances, excellent levels of customer service and yet surprisingly affordable prices.

The Classic Jazz Band is the cornerstone of the Nathan Hassall Music agency and we are extremely proud of this band and its reputation. If you want your event to ooze with style and sophistication then you’d better get in touch.
