Background Music

Brass & wind

Traditional choices include a solo trumpeter for impact; fanfare trumpeters to announce arrivals, dinner and speeches; brass trios / quintets, right up to full brass bands. For a funkier theme, a stunning female saxophonist with DJ or backing tracks is a highly creative alternative. If a lighter classical option is preferred, see our delightful wind ensembles.

Contemporary

So many occasions demand back- ground music which is a little more cutting edge than the traditional. Here we offer a selection of the more unusual contemporary ensembles and sounds. Many of our artists are also composers and will happily create special bespoke pieces to suit.

Jazz

It really is a case of 'all that jazz'. There's so much variety, from traditional Dixieland jazz through the styles of the 1920s and Cole Porter, the 1940s and the Rat Pack. From a discreet background duo to star cabaret performances by such legends as Acker Bilk or Humphrey Littleton, classical jazz suits almost every venue and occasion.

Piano/Vocalists

The most versatile of instruments, the piano lends itself to any type of music: classical, jazz or easy listening. It also works well with a double bass, a violin, as part of a group and, of course, with vocals. We can hire upright, baby grand, and grand pianos, or many of our pianists can bring their own state-of-the-art keyboards.
