What Have They Done Before?

Jeanie and Jazz with a Twist are professional jazz musicians with a wealth of experience.  Winning Best Newcomer at the Marlborough Jazz Festival 2015, Jeanie has recently supported Georgie Fame, performed for HRH Prince Edward, Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber, the Korean Royal family, Samual L Jackson, Shirley Bassey and Pierce Brosnan among other VVIPs.

As well as playing regularly to sustained acclaim at jazz festivals and clubs across the UK including The 606 in Chelsea, Ronnie Scott’s and The Spice of Life in Soho, they enjoy performing at numerous wedding receptions, private parties and corporate events at venues as diverse as The Army and Navy Club in Pall Mall, The National Theatre, outdoor marquees and the MS Excellence for a cruise on the Seine in Paris.

Being repeat performers at Army and RAF events they are well versed in filling dance floors and entertaining audiences as well as providing unobtrusive, atmospheric background music.

What Sort of Music Do They Play?
Jazz with a Twist's repertoire evokes the classic glamour of yesteryear. They perform mainly swing and Latin jazz hits from the 1920s – 1960s covering Rat Pack classics, Bossa nova, swing and bebop. 

We will learn special requests to personalise your event and regularly perform for Great Gatsby and James Bond themed parties among others.

Our regular repertoire includes favourites made famous by Doris Day, Dean Martin, Michael Buble, Frank Sinatra, Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee, Anita O’Day, Jon Hendricks, Annie Ross, Charlie Parker, Edmundo Ross, Mel Torme, Vera Lynn, Al Jarreau, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Ray Charles, Astrud Gilberto, Amy Winehouse and many more!


What will the band look like?
The band can tailor their look to suit your event - for weddings and corporate occasions they dress formally in cocktail attire but for less formal events they can dress more casually if you prefer - just specify to your agent what your requirements are and Jazz with a Twist will meet your needs.

Your Event
Live sets are flexible and can be performed as 2 x 45 minute sets, 3 x 40 minute sets or 2 x 60 minutes; they also play complimentary music through the PA via mp3 or CD before and between sets - the client may make special requests or use their own laptop/music player should they wish.

Jazz with a Twist perform as a duo, trio, quartet, quintet or larger ensemble.  A duo or trio (vocals with piano or guitar plus double bass) lends its self to background music but the inclusion of a drum kit as well as horns will create a bigger sound, giving the show oomph and encouraging dancing.

They will accommodate whatever space is available as long as there is an area of level ground with a minimum of 2 power sockets available in easy reach.  Shelter for electrical equipment will also be necessary for outdoor events. They are very adaptable to a range of room types and always adjust volume levels to suit your requirements.

Our equipment is of the highest standard and we are fully insured by the Musicians Union.
