The London Acoustic Jazz Ensemble - Acoustic Jazz Duo / Trio

The London Acoustic Jazz Ensemble are a small ensemble comprised of vocalist, guitarist and saxophone. They can play as a trio or duo depending on the gig and perform mostly retro style music covering the jazz standards but also country and pop classics. The singer also sings a selection of songs in French.

The London Acoustic Jazz Ensemble perform straight covers of old favourites but sometimes add a jazzy or quirky feel to modern classics. Artists who inspire us include:

  • Billie Holiday
  • Ella Fitzgerald
  • Ed Sheeran
  • Eva Cassidy
  • Adele
  • Joe Cocker
  • Dusty Springfield
  • Bob Dylan
  • Diana Krall
  • Leonard Cohen
  • Astrud Gilberto


The singing style is retro cocktail lounge, smooth, mellow, jazzy and just a little bit country. The sax player is a talented, classically trained musician who plays tenor, alto and soprano saxophone. The guitarist is a highly talented jazz guitarist playing both electric and acoustic guitar.

Their vibe is laid back and friendly and their aim is to make our audience happy! They engage with the audience and aim to make them feel relaxed and well entertained.

The London Acoustic Jazz Ensemble are happy learn songs specific to your event, take requests where possible even lead sing-alongs.

They are very flexible and can provide both beautiful background music suitable to hotels, bars and restaurants or equally be the dance band at a gala dinner. They play sweet country and pop sets suitable to your wedding ceremony but then can up the tempo and play full swing numbers for the reception.

The London Acoustic Jazz Ensemble can easily provide both types of music at the same event, for example acoustic guitar during reception canapes and then dance band music after dinner. This is a great way to cut costs and make organisation easier for the event organiser.

They bring all the necessary sound equipment and will communicate fully with you before your event to ensure your needs are met and will try and accommodate any requests.

The London Acoustic Jazz Ensemble - Acoustic Jazz Duo / Trio Feedback

You guys were fantastic!! Thank you so much. The feedback from the staff and guests has been really lovely and we all can't wait for you to come back. I just wish I'd known a week earlier and I would have booked you for Christmas. Will definitely be booking you for future events.

Monique Newton, London

It was absolutely brilliant! Colette is a superb hostess and entertainer and the evening was a delight. The music was great and they brought a warm, friendly and fun atmosphere to the evening....I can't wait for the next event! Thank you.

Hilary Johnson, London

I just want to say a huge thank you for making our Silver Sunday event truly fabulous! The feedback has been absolutely brilliant and I believe it was really down to the two of you. It added so much to our afternoon tea. I do hope you are available to book for our Christmas Party - I have had customers requesting you already. Thank you again!

Sceherazade Ameer, London

They chose perfect songs to match the mood of the event and gave a fantastic start to what turned out to be an amazing day. The audience had to be small because of Lockdown and yet they managed to make us feel we were at the real event. They even led us in singing at the end of the day - just as if we were gathered at the bandstand - superb!

Nicole Patterson, London

They were great - great sound and great look which really suited the vibe of the party. They let one of the guests sing with them at the end of the day which was a nice touch. Music was cool too. I hope to book them for my own party next year.

Joe Quinn, London

They were simply wonderful. Arrived from other parts of London. But they loved performing and sang classics that my mother loved.
