All That Jazz has a wealth of experience playing at high profile events across the country. They have appeared on ITV's "This Morning" show with Philip Schofield and Fern Britten and have also performed as the backing band to the 2006 "X Factor" runner up, Ray Quinn.
They have also appeared at venues such as The Grosvenor House and Hilton Hotel London, The Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and the NEC Birmingham, The Crown Plaza Manchester and the Royal Berkshire Hotel Surrey, to name just a few. They have also made countless appearances at stately homes and country house hotels, for occasions such as corporate events, weddings, parties and birthday celebrations etc, as well as being engaged by the British Military on many events throughout the year.
All That Jazz is happy to be completely flexible with regard to the ensemble line up, dress code, special requests, set and playing times etc in order to meet the requirements of the client exactly, to ensure that the event is a complete success and enjoyed by all.
All That Jazz is made up of hand picked professional musicians based throughout the UK and led by Mathew Richardson Bmus (Hons) who is a former scholarship student of the Royal Academy of Music London. Away from the ensemble Mathew along with the other members enjoy vast success as freelance musicians working at home and abroad on television, radio, on commercially available recordings and in some of the country's finest concert venues.
All That Jazz can be employed in the following standard line ups: - (Bespoke tailor made line ups are available on request i.e. solo, duo etc.)
Standard Trio = (Piano, Bass, Drums)...
This size of ensemble is perfect to provide music at a background level, which is clearly audible but does not interfere with the lively conversations taking place between family and friends or colleagues. The musicians have honed their skills over many years of playing corporate, wedding and military events where the ability to play low level swinging music is essential. The All That Jazz Trio creates a relaxed and classy atmosphere which enhances immensely the enjoyment of any meal or drinks reception. Alternative Trio line ups are available on request.
Quartet = (Sax, Piano, Bass, Drums)...
Still perfectly at home playing at background level as described in the Trio section, but with the addition of the saxophone to the rhythm section, the quartet has the ability to perform a fully blown Jazz gig to any size of audience, playing a set of Jazz Standards fused if necessary with Funk, Soul and Blues tunes just for good measure. This ensemble is perfect not only for functions such as corporate, wedding, birthday and military but also as the main evening’s entertainment at any jazz club, restaurant, venue or bar, providing a full concert for all music lovers. A range of P.A. sizes are available on request to cater for any size of event. Alternative Quartet line ups are available on request.
Quintet = (Vocals, Sax, Piano, Bass, Drums)
With the addition of vocals to the quartet, The All That Jazz Quintet is able to play all of the famous Swing Standards from Sinatra to Ella Fitzgerald and very much more. Since Robbie Williams re-popularised the ‘Rat Pack’ repertoire with his number one hit “Have You Met Miss Jones”, this is the perfect time and ensemble to entertain any audience in that style through to more modern ballads and bossa novas from the likes of Nora Jones and Diana Krall. Great for functions such as corporate, wedding, birthday and military but also as the main evening’s entertainment at any jazz club, restaurant, venue or bar, providing a full concert for all music lovers. Alternative Quintet line ups are available on request.
