Latin grooves








We can't help but put cool latin-jazz and touches of salsa and bossa nova into our set list - it's just too good.  Ask us to tailor the band to this kind of music and if that is the feel you are looking for.  More on latin grooves here

Sinatra & Bublé







Pick a set list based on some of the great tunes performed by Frank Sinatra & Michael Bublé for a truly swinging event.  Download our song list for more information here. 

Acoustic Jazz







We often get ask to play at events or locations where there is no electricity or there are noise restrictions.  Don't worry, we have the perfect line-up and equipment so get in touch and ask.


Vintage jazz, swing & jive





Planning a vintage event and looking for that 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s feel?  We can play a great mix of classic tunes with that jazz, swing and jive feel.  More on vintage jazz & swing here

Great band & great disco


 Hire the band and disco at the same time.  There are a number of options including using the band sound system for your own iPod, laptop, etc, or you could book the full Hipcat disco.  Ask for more information.

Helpful extras


We can also offer use of the PA for speeches if required and will also provide music on MP3 during any breaks.  A popular option is the facility of providing music on MP3 rather than a disco being booked, or providing the full Hipcat disco. 


Please contact us to discuss your event and we will be happy to deal with any questions or queries.


Also you could:

- discuss your wedding with us and how we could help out with the first dance;

- ask us about events and how we could help you with a PA for speeches, a disco or background music if required;

- or anything else - we're very helpful!
