About this Act

Step into the Limelight…

Limelight Live introduces Limelight - the perfect musical accompaniment to your evening. Choose from their range of top singers and musicians for a cool, fresh and sophisticated twist on classic jazz and swing hits. From a black-tie duo and dinner jazz, to a six piece band that will move your night, and your guests, onto the dance floor, Limelight have the right mix for you.

Limelight specialises in jazz and swing classics with a contemporary twist. They have been performing together for six years at corporate events, weddings, private parties and more. Proud of their high level of musicianship, their select pool of singers and musicians' credits include: BBC Proms, The Glenn Miller Orchestra, West End's 'The Rat Pack' and BBC Radio 2's 'Friday Night is Music Night'.

Limelight are the creators of the ultimate jazz experience - JAZZEOKE! This event offers you the opportunity to sing live with a four piece jazz band!

From Sinatra to Simone, they have favourites for everyone, and an experience you’ll never forget.

With JAZZEOKE you get the best of both worlds: a dynamic performance from the Limelight vocalists bookending your very own stars of swing! They provide song lists in advance and on the night, lyric sheets and introduce your ‘budding Bublés’ as they take to the floor.

Popular song choices include: Ain’t That A Kick In The Head, Someone To Watch Over Me, Come Fly With Me, Fever, Fly Me To The Moon, I’ve Got You Under My Skin, Mack The Knife and New York, New York.
