Gourmet Swing

Gourmet Swing is the ideal swing band for your forthcoming event. With our extensive repertoire we will work with you to tailor an entertainment package that suits your requirements.

With a selection of jazz, swing, jive and popular covers, performing classics from Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole and Michael Bublé, through to the soulful sounds of Stevie Wonder, James Brown and Michael Jackson, Gourmet Swing guarantees to fill the dance floor with an evening of 'swinging' entertainment.

Gourmet Swing

The group performs using a variety of sized lineups depending on your needs.

The 4-piece band consists of jazz and swing vocalist/trombonist Matt Ball, along with piano, double bass and drums.

To this we can add the Hot Horns brass section to make a 6-piece. The Hot Horns have toured with many of the UK’s top jazz, swing and big bands, as well as pop/soul legends - Candi Staton, Percy Sledge, Martha Reeves, Deniece Williams, Ben. E. King, Jimmy Ruffin, Jean Knight, Billy Paul, Freda Payne, Peabo Bryson, The Temptations Review and The New Stylistics to name just a few!

Finally if more of a pop repertoire is required we perform as a 7-piece, adding our female vocalist, Hayley, singing pop, soul and Motown classics, past and present.

Prices

These vary according to lengths and times of sets, location of venue and size of room (for amplification equipment).

Please contact Matt to discuss your individual requirements to receive a quote.

Testimonials

From the restrained playing of the afternoon which provided a melodious accompaniment to the chinking of glasses & cutlery to the sheer exuberance of the evening's performance it was GREAT and I do mean GREAT.

To have live music & musicians of such quality was a treat.

Mrs S. Sheard, Wedding at Merchant Taylors, York

We booked the Gourmet Jazz Quartet for our wedding on 17th July 2010. Matthew was in touch before the wedding to discuss our music options, he was very supportive of our needs even learning new hymns and providing music for our friend to sing during our service.

The music was fantastic and it was hard to get everyone outside for photos as they were enjoying the music so much! Thank you for providing us with such fantastic music, and for helping our wedding day be such a happy and memorable occasion

Janelle & David, Wedding at Lazaat, Hull
