Jazz Singers and Swing Bands in Southampton

Jazz singers are the princes and princesses of the music world – passionate, captivating and exceptionally talented, there’s an undeniable presence when a jazz singer takes to the stage to tell you his or her story. The singers who front our Southampton swing bands have learned this from studying such legends as Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Amy Winehouse, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Michael Buble – so expect a spectacle!

Now for a question of genre – do you prefer cool jazz, trad jazz, gypsy jazz (Django Reinhardt Style), Dixieland jazz or modern jazz? None of the above? Our Southampton jazz bands also perform a fine collection of jazz standards from the Great American Songbook authored by Richard Rodgers, George Gershwin, Cole Porter and many other acclaimed songwriters of the 20th century – plus, for those new to Jazz Club, some imaginative re-workings of Ed Sheeran, Beatles, Rihanna and Status Quo hits.
