Lounge Jazz Trio in action. Middleton Lodge

As well as providing our full show in the evening, we also offer our Lounge Jazz Trio for earlier in the day as an extra. This can set the perfect atmosphere for reception drinks or throughout your meal. With a set list featuring hits from Stevie Wonder, Jamiroquai, Amy Winehouse, Marvin Gaye, Gregory Porter, Bill Withers, all performed in a laid back acoustic jazz style, it really is the perfect way to entertain your guests.

It was great to see these photos of the trio in action for Rachaels wedding at the stunning Middleton Lodge.

The Mere Golf resort and Spa.

It was great to be back at the fantastic Mere Golf Resort and Spa for Daniel and Pooja’s fantastic wedding celebrations. This was an amazing Irish/Indian wedding with a mixture of musical styles throughout the day; from a traditional Irish band to our classic swing to an Indian DJ to finish the evening off. It was great for us to be able to perform a more Cabaret style show throughout the day topped of by helping Daniel sing a song to his wife at the end of his speech.

A fantastic day and an absolute pleasure to be part of your celebrations. All the best guys!

Christmas at The May Fair Hotel.

It was great to kick off our Christmas season in Central London this week at the famous May Fair hotel. This was our second time performing for this corporate event and it was an absolute pleasure to be back! The vintage Christmas sound of the Mini Big Band fitting perfectly with the style and decor of the Crystal ballroom.

Absolutely Flawless and so much fun!

“The guys came to perform at our wedding in September and were absolutely fantastic. After having to postpone due to covid (which was made so easy) we had the most amazing day, centred around the band. Every single guest I spoke to after the event told me how fantastic and unique they were. We loved every second.”

Alex Narramore’s Wedding, Barns and Yard, Worcester

My partner & I decided to hire the Mini Big Band for our (admittedly small!) wedding – purely down to the high quality we saw in their videos and our love of good music. We were absolutely blown away by the talent and charisma from the band (as were all of our guests – nobody wanted the night to end!)
The whole team were SO professional and amazingly talented, they beat our very high expectations by a mile! I really can’t recommend this band enough – Chris, Jon, Roman, Andi and all the team truly made our wedding perfect. Thank you!
