About this Act

The Decatur Street Trio are Rosie on vocals, Ben on double bass and James on keys and together they offer Jazz standards and Jazz covers that are definitely not standard! Not only can they play Ella Fitzgerald's finest refrains and Billie Holiday's most recognised ditties, but the trio also performs their own arrangements of rock hits, most notably, fan favourite, the Motörhead classic Ace Of Spades. With members' experience playing across the country, and in some of it's most prestigious venues (James has played at Ronnie Scott's and Rosie at the 100 Club), and members' previous clients including Barclays, Zizzi, Canary Wharf Management and Thames Luxury Cruises, this trio has experience and talent in abundance.

With a flexible attitude toward bookings and professional know-how, The act offers various performance options to help you plan your perfect celebration. Are you looking for a set of smooth melodies to entertain the guests during a drinks reception and add some ambience to your sit-down dinner? A ballad to accompany you down the aisle? A tune or ten to warm everyone up for dancing? The Decatur Street Trio can offer you all of these, just mix and match from our standard performance times, or get in touch with us to arrange a custom booking!

As a professional act, they come with top of the range equipment and different PAs to suit your individual event, be that an intimate birthday party with 30 guests, or a Gala dinner with 400 guests! They can also provide additional PA equipment and sound engineer for larger events upon request.
