Jazz Singers for Hire in Canterbury

Jazz means many different things to many different people, so we make sure we have plenty of jazz bands in Canterbury who perform New Orleans Dixieland / trad jazz, modern jazz, Django Reidhardt-style gypsy jazz, bebop, hard bebop, jazz funk, jazz fusion, and anything else with jazz in the title. For jazz newcomers, the majority of our Canterbury swing and jazz bands will perform their reworkings of the best Kings of Leon, Oasis, Cee Lo Green and Alicia Keys hits.

Whilst some smooth piano or guitar based jazz, maybe with a little trumpet on top, is pretty much the perfect music to have on in the background of a conversation, if you'd rather instigate some riotous dancing, get one of our mega-talented jazz vocalists to show you the way. You'll feel as though Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra and the whole of the rest of his Rat Pack are there in the room with you!
