We have a range of acts covering these genres who are ideal for corporate events, private functions and weddings amongst others.

There are also tribute acts available for Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Michael Buble, who will put on a special show of Swing classics from those artists and some of our solo vocalists and bands can do a Jazz/Swing set.
