Hire Jazz Bands and Jazz Singers in Norwich

Where to start on your quest for the perfect jazz band in Norwich? Choosing your preferred sub-genre might be a sensible start – though our Norwich jazz bands do tend to hop between a couple. Have a look at their profile pages, and you'll see that the lists of Irving Berlin and George Gershwin-penned standards from the Great American Standard alongside favourites from the schools of trad jazz, cool jazz, bebop, contemporary jazz, Django Reinhardt-esque gypsy jazz, Dixieland jazz and 1920s and 30s swing stretch on and on. For jazz rookies, our jazz bands in Norwich have re-moulded hits by Daft Punk, Rihanna, Michael Jackson and the Beatles into a jazzier shape.

Depending on how prominent you want the live music to be at your event (i.e. grabbing attention from centre stage or noodling away in the background), you may be interested in the frontmen and women responsible for transforming our Norwich jazz bands' sets from performances into show stopping spectacles. These astonishingly skilful singers take there inspiration from such jazz legends as Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Nina Simone and Frank Sinatra – and to witness them in action is a breathtaking experience.

Booking a Swing Band in Norwich
