We can supply the style of jazz band that will suit your requirements in terms of both size and budget.

Smooth cocktail jazz or Latin and bossa novas for those pre dinner drinks at weddings, corporate events and garden parties or lively six-piece Dixieland band for that garden party or village fete.

Perhaps smooth vocals and the great American songbook, ideal for most events but perfect in that small bar or restaurant setting.

Swing Street West can also recommend and give advice on Bath and South West based groups.

Street Swing West uses only the best swing musicians in the area with a wealth of experience between them. These experienced and skilful players have all built up good reputations in their own right. They play with various groups in venues across the West of England.

Swing Street can bring them together for your needs.

We can tailor the bands to your needs and budget in terms of size and instrumentation.

The trio is ideal for small intimate gatherings such as art galleries, bars, restaurants, jazz brunches and private parties. It can comprise a mix of guitar / piano / bass/ saxophone/ trumpet or vocals. We can always advise you on the most suitable combination.

It can also be expanded up to a sextet or more for corporate events, weddings or any event where a larger combination is required. These larger groups can be a full Dixieland line or a smoother swing and bossa nova style band with or with out vocals.

The band can dress in black DJ's or smart casual clothes as required.
