"You guys are good...really good."
- Sir Paul McCartney, December 2011
The Hot Jazz Trio are three professional musicians who have been playing together in various formats for over fifteen years before forming the trio in 2007.
Our music of choice is a vibrant blend of Gypsy Swing, jazz standards and funky latin, all mashed up with some snappy arrangements and played from the heart.
Available to hire for weddings, events, corporate and private functions throughout the UK and abroad. Infectious rhythms played on an all-acoustic line-up of two guitars and double bass make them a suitable addition for any event.
