About this Act

Sentimentality can get icky. Nostalgia? Thing of the past. Ah but romance… true, deep romance never goes out of style! Max Moody Jazz suffuse that Romance with Jazz Joy to generate a swinging atmosphere of cool sophistication, foot tappin’ fun and serious authenticity.

Based in Somerset, the band are no sound-alike copyists - they create distinctively original interpretations of classic swing, jazz and Latin tunes – songs with a story to tell and a feeling to convey. Very experienced musicians with a nose for detail and a sense of occasion, a sense of humour and a profound sense of rhythm; they dress the part and captivate an audience with infectious rhythm, mellifluous singing, warm rapport and an unmistakable love of what they do.

The perfect accompaniment to Very Special Occasions - whether you’re schmoozing at a soiree, carousing with cocktails, celebrating a betrothal or a birthday breakfast, Max Moody Jazz provide a professional, personalised performance which radiates ageless ambience. They offer a flexible line-up and bring with them stage décor, lights and PA.


Dear Max and the Band,

Thank you all so very much for being such a wonderful part of today’s event. You were absolutely perfect and a joy to have with us… it bought the whole afternoon to life. I hope your new lights shine onto many wonderful gigs as your presence will shine as part of the memory of today for a long time to come. Please know how very deeply your music and your energy was appreciated.

Kind regards,


Frome, Somerset, UK)
