About Century Jazz

Full Description: 

Century Jazz are a five-piece band of top musicians playing mainstream/modern jazz from the 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. The band’s fine reputation is a result of the many years of experience acquired by these musicians, playing in jazz groups, big bands and even the occasional rock and folk group. This means that the band have a wide repertoire suitable as both background music and dance music, particularly with the addition of their female vocalist.

Century Jazz have played at numerous weddings, barmitzvahs, and private and corporate parties in venues ranging from prestigious West End hotels to stately homes. This function work is combined with appearances at music festivals and jazz clubs, where Century Jazz can always be relied upon to impress the jazz aficionados. Their CD, from which their demo tracks have been taken, has been featured on Jazz FM and BBC radio, including Humphrey Lyttleton’s £quotBest of Jazz" programme.

The band consists of piano, bass, drums, guitar, trombone and saxophones/clarinet/flute. Our quoted price is for this five-piece line-up, but for serious dance music it is recommended that the band also add their female singer. The band normally play for around three hours and provide their own PA system.

The band’s repertoire ranges from the great ‘standards’ of the 30s, 40s and 50s composed by masters such as Gershwin, Cole Porter, Rogers and Hart, Duke Ellington, etc; through to some gentler pop music from groups such as the Beatles and the Carpenters.

Price from: £625
