Hire Jazz Singers and Swing Bands in Durham

Jazz is a genre that constantly reinvents itself, giving our Durham jazz bands plenty of incredible tunes to choose from. Their repertoires cover all kinds of styles – cool jazz, trad jazz, New Orleans swing from the 1920s and 30s, gypsy jazz as made famous by Django Reinhardt, Dixieland jazz and the very best jazz standards that such composers as Cole Porter, George Gershwin and Irving Berlin ever contributed to the Great American Songbook. You may well also recognise a few modern chart hits thrown in – Daft Punk, Ed Sheeran and Rihanna songs work terrifically in our Durham jazz bands' style!

Jazz singers are often cited as among the most emotive and skilful in the business. When you think of how iconic Frank Sinatra, Dinah Washington, Amy Winehouse, Dean Martin, Nat King Cole have become over the years for their amazing voices, it's easy to see why the vocalist – who front our Durham jazz bands so very charismatically – take such care in the excellent homages they pay to them.
