About Omnibus Edition

Full Description: 

Omnibus Edition are one of those rare bands that can perform both jazz and pop to the highest standard, which is why these musicians were chosen to perform at the 50th birthday celebrations at Highgrove for Prince Charles and several subsequent royal events.

As well as their sheer musicianship, the band’s other great quality is their versatile line-up. Vocals are shared between the guitarist (heard singing on most of the demo tracks), the sax player (providing the vocals on Fly Me To The Moon on their demo), and the keyboard player who also provides the bass lines using pedals. The four-piece line-up is completed with drums, but a trumpet can also be added where required. This means that the band punches significantly above its weight sounding more like a six or seven-piece. This versatility enables the band to cover a huge repertoire of music from ragtime and the roaring 20s up to 21st century hits. On the way there is 30s and 40s swing, 50s Rock’n’Roll and Latin American, Classic 60s pop from the Beatles and the Stones, Soul from Stax and Tamla Motown, and the greatest hits from the 70s, 80s and 90s. Truly an Omnibus Edition of popular music of the 20th and 21st centuries.

The variety of musical styles makes Omnibus Edition the perfect choice for parties where the age range is from five to 95. The band has performed at hundreds of events - small house parties through to grand balls in top hotels – and this experience ensures a wonderful mix with the right music at the right volume and a dedication to keep the dance floor full.

The band provide their own PA and lighting system and usually play a maximum of two-and-a-half hours split into three 50 minute sets over a four-hour stay, plus another hour-and-a-half to set up.
