Jazz Bands Cambridge

Our Cambridge jazz bands promise to hit all sixes, delivering consistently high quality music with a distinctive air of professionalism and style. We are delighted to be able to offer a wide range of styles, reaching from full 10 piece swing ensembles to lively jazz trios to piano soloists, each bringing you their unique brand of magic. Any one of our accomplished and entertaining Cambridge jazz bands will make your event one to remember.

Versatile and adaptable, our local Cambridge jazz bands are accustomed to adjusting their line-ups to allow for space constraints. If you're looking to fill a ballroom with excitement and energy, or just want to listen to someone quietly crooning away in the corner over dinner, we'll be able to arrange for you precisely what you're after. Some of the more typical functions our Cambridge jazz bands are hired for include drinks/champagne receptions, wedding breakfasts and corporate events.

Cambridge Jazz Trios, Jazz Singers and Swing Bands

While purely instrumental jazz amazes with the players' technical prowess, a singer brings a more personal touch, giving the band a face and a voice. Some of the greatest and most recognisable voices of the last century emerged from the jazz scene: Dean Martin, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra all rose to prominence against a backdrop of jazz and swing. Bands for Hire can offer you some of the most talented vocalists in the area who draw direct influence from these legends among many others.

Jazz connoisseurs will appreciate the singers' breadth and depth of knowledge, and their obvious beauty and skill win the hearts of your more casual guests; by the end of the show, all your attendees will be carrying a torch for the star of the show. Our jazz bands in Cambridge list a large portion of their repertoire on the Bands for Hire profile, so if you're hoping to hear songs by a particular singer, you can browse to your heart's content by clicking an artist name below.

Cambridge Gypsy Jazz, contemporary jazz and Swing

Jazz is an umbrella term for several divergent styles of music, all linked by inventive instrumentation and a flair for performance, and Bands for Hire strives to cover as many of them as possible. Whether you feel your guests would enjoy getting a wiggle on to some rapid Bebop, reliving the indulgence of the pre-WWII era with some sprawling 20s-style swing, or gazing in awe at the compelling forward-thinking of contemporary jazz, you'll find something on our Cambridge jazz bands page that'll go down a treat.

Our all inclusive quotes cover the costs of travel, as well as the use of the performers' own sound system.
