Kevin's act can be tailored to your individual requirements. Options include :
Solo with playback – either a show performance, for dancing or something a little more discreet (perfect for a drinks reception or over dinner). The backing tracks used are all live recorded original big band arrangements, giving you the feel of having a real band. An hour set or 2 x 40 minute set is usually performed.
With Live Band – larger bands or even just a pianist are among the options available, if you were looking for a smaller band you would get a great sound with just a piano, drums, bass and saxophone. An hour, a 2 x 40 minute or 2 x 1 hour set is usually performed.
The Band is made up of highly talented musicians and we guarantee the musicians you hire are in the main high profile and award winning session musicians in their own right.
