About this Act

The JD Duo are a premier choice for live entertainment ranging from smooth and unobtrusive jazz for a dinner/drinks reception to high energy, rocking party tunes for a night to remember, and everything in between.

Jamie McAllister on guitar is an exceptional guitarist with many years experience as both a live and studio musician, incorporating a number of UK and international tours, as well as TV and live appearances with artists such as De La Soul, Omar, Courtney Pine, and many more.

Debbie Corbett on vocals is a much sought after vocalist thanks to her rich velvet tones, and unique ability to tailor her vocal production to the musical style in question – whether it’s jazz, blues, rock, pop, motown, soul or anything in between. She has worked extensively with function/tribute bands throughout the UK and abroad for over 15 years, and is in constant demand.

Set List

The JD Duo have extensive catalogs of songs including swing/Latin jazz standards, easy listening and mellow background music, contemporary covers from 1960s to present day, plus a vast selection of acoustic covers of 'oldies', and modern day classic hits.
