lively sense of fun.
The band features between 3 and 8 players chosen from piano,
double bass, drums, trumpet, saxophone, guitar, viola, vibraphone
and female vocalist.

Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Miles
Davis, Charlie Parker, Louis Jordan and Antonio Carlos Jobim, plus
well known standards by Gershwin, Cole Porter, Kern and Sondheim.
They move effortlessly from traditional swing and ballads, through
bebop, latin jazz and jive to modern jazz and jazz-funk.
They are happy to stick to one or two styles and are more than
willing to play requests. The full 8-piece band can also
play salsa, if requested in advance.
The Jazzberries have provided music for numerous private and
public events including wedding receptions, corporate parties and
PR events plus Christmas, New Year and Valentine Balls.
From celebrities’ gardens to funky warehouses, marquees to
stately homes, restaurants to nightclubs, they are happy to
perform wherever the party is. Though they usually play in
and around London, they’ve also been booked as far a field as
