"Scott Grant Trio surpassed all expectations with a quite superb performance that dazzled and truly gave us value for money."
-Tim and Learna Orford
The Scott Grant Trio specialise in swing and jazz standards, from laid back dinner jazz and background music to hot swing tunes to get people up and dancing, with splash of Latin and the odd waltz thrown in for good measure. The Scott Grant Trio does it all and are available to perform at your wedding, civil partnership, private or corporate function, award ceremony or ball, adding a touch of sparkle and sophistication to your event.
The trio is led by Scott Grant on piano and vocals, with Robert Clark on drums and Emilio Montuori on the bass, three highly professional musicians with many years of playing experience together. The Scott Grant Trio can be joined on request by one of our highly acclaimed special guest soloists on saxophone, trumpet, or trombone (subject to artist availability) broadening the range of possibilities still further.
With influences rooted in the Great American Songbook, The Scott Grant Trio perform standards from the great songwriters of the Twentieth Century, including George and Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, and Irving Berlin, with songs from artists such as Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jnr., and Nat King Cole as well as some interesting twists on modern songs.
With an exciting and varied song list catering for all ages, the Scott Grant Trio perform fantastic tunes from across the decades. Flexible and versatile, their massive repertoire covers not only swing and jazz standards but a huge variety of artists, with lively danceable hits from the 30s and 40s to the present day.
