As we’re getting deep in to Autumn and the leaves are falling off the trees theres a distinctly sepia and vintage tinge to the country so we thought we’d feature a few jazz and swing acts for weddings we have available for hire in the UK. The larger acts are available to perform as the main act at receptions and the smaller bands are ideal for background music at drinks receptions and the like.

She will transport you on a journey through some wonderful era’s singing the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, The Andrews Sisters, Natalie Cole, Connie Francis, Elvis, Alma Cogan and many, many more.
