THE BEST OF LIVE ENTERTAINMENT & EVENT PLANNING. All in One Place
SILK STREET JAZZ
Silk Street Jazz were formed back in 2003 as a new generation of early jazz band. The ensemble contains today’s young up-and-coming players, all of whom continue to revitalise the scene with their flair, excitement and enthusiasm. Their ability to acknowledge and reflect on the past but to create a contemporary sound is why it is one of the pre-eminent bands on the scene today. All members are full time London professionals and some of the leading musicians in their field. Silk Street Jazz are building on a fast growing prestigious reputation for being one of the most reliable bands in the UK. Establishing a high level of consumer confidence, the band’s credibility in today’s market is clearly evident from its extensive list of widely recognised and extremely satisfied clientele.
Silk Street Jazz offer many line up variations in order to accommodate all venue sizes, budgets and events
2 Piece – Clarinet (or) Trumpet (or) Sax (or) Trombone with Banjo (or) Guitar
3 Piece – Clarinet (or) Trumpet (or) Sax (or) Trombone with Banjo (or) Guitar & Sousaphone (or) Bass Sax
4 Piece – Any 2 from Clarinet, Trumpet, Sax, Trombone with Banjo (or) Guitar & Sousaphone (or) Bass Sax
5 Piece – Any 3 from Clarinet, Trumpet, Sax, Trombone with Banjo (or) Guitar & Sousa (or) Bass Sx
6 Piece – Any 4 from Clarinet, Trumpet, Sax, Trombone with Banjo (or) Guitar & Sousa (or) Bass Sx & Drums
7 Piece – Clarinet, Trumpet, Sax, Trombone with Banjo (or) Guitar & Sousa (or) Bass Sax & Drums
The Silk Street 5, 6 & 7-piece bands now include the sound of a fantastic male singer, the perfect ensemble for those wanting the sophisticated sound of the jazz singer to the group. The band also offers music for dancing. In this case, use of the drums is quite important and so we would advise a minimum 4 piece line up consisting of 1 Horn, Banjo, Sousaphone, Drums. More front line instruments can be added to build up the sound.
We had an amazing time on the 2nd December 2006 -The Cotton Club theme just came together with the Silk Street Jazz playing the really authentic 20/30s New Orleans Jazz, the dance floor was full all evening. You must book these guys!!! They are the best.
You guys must be the best New Orleans band outside of New Orleans!
