About this Act

The BBQ provide quality musical entertainment for weddings, parties, corporate functions and any other special occasion.

The band consists of experienced jazz musicians based in North Wales/North West. They have a large and diverse repertoire ranging from New Orleans, through the tin pan alley classics, the swing era, and mainstream jazz recalling the classic small groups of the 1930's to the 'Blue Note' era hardbop styles, performing standards and bebop favourites from the 40's and 50's.

The band have played all over the UK from The Isle of Bute in Scotland down to Swanage in Dorset. Their work has been recognised by the British Jazz Awards and they have received some excellent reviews 'original, exciting & crisp' is how they were described recently.

The most popular line-up for this band is sextet (Hot 6) but the instrumentation can be reduced to suit the occasion.

*Also please note that due to band members not always being available they may occasionally use deputy musicians but only ever use the best!
