All of the bands are able to cover a full range of cool jazz standards.The Trio or Quartet is able to cover a full range of cool Jazz Standards.

Jazz & Party Package
In addition to the band for your main evening’s entertainment why not take advantage of the Jazz package as well. Dine in style whilst being entertained by the refined sounds of our Jazz. And then dance the night away whilst being entertained by the full band.
The Jazz & Party Package has been specifically created for those clients that wish to book a suite of entertainment but who do not want to have the inconvenience of dealing with an external band and who wish to take advantage of the discounted pricing that can be offered as a result.
The brass section is comprised of alto saxophone and trumpet however this may be increased by adding tenor sax, trombone and baritone sax. The superb musical arrangement’s really bring out the best in this incredibly tight section and adds another dimension to the sound of the band. Powerful playing with ripping solos as standard.

Cut the Cake - Funk Covers Band Feedback
"What can I say? They made the evening, not only for my clients who danced and danced and danced until we practically had to cut the power to get them off the dance floor and into bed, but also for me as I've never worked with such a great group of fabulous, easy-going musicians!" Emma Chesters, Director, EC Events Ltd
"We would like to say a huge thank you for the fantastic music you and the band provided for our wedding, it truly made it a very special occasion.
So many people have commented on the music and it was so nice to see so many people dancing all night. We hope you enjoyed the evening too.
Please pass on our thanks to rest of the band" Anna & Craig
"Thank you so much for playing at our wedding 3rd September. We got back from our honeymoon with so many great memories of the day, thank you for be an amazing part of it. The music was incredible, even better than we could possibly have imagined, and kept us dancing into the small hours. Everyone has commented how fantastic the band was and they enjoyed every moment. Thank you for being so easy to work with and making our day such a success." Thanks again and hope see you play soon."
Andy & Nicole
"Having been back from our honeymoon a few days and the chance to reflect on our weddng day, Rachel and I wanted to thank you and the band for being such a fantastic part of the occasion. We have had such wonderful comments from the guests and in particular how much they enjoyed the band. I'm sorry we didn't get the chance to thank you in person on the night, but we both got completely carried away. Could you please pass on our thanks to everyone else involved." Kind regards, Neil & Rachel
Cut the Cake - Funk Covers Band Set Up
As standard we use top of the range audio equipment which is installed and operated on each engagement by our very own team. Because the band is fully engineered this ensures the perfect sound mix for each and every event.
The standard vocal rig is ideal for events up to 150 people or small function rooms, allowing competitive prices and excellent value for money.
For larger weddings and events, we can provide a top of the range 4000 watt PA system with engineer which is suitable to perform to a room of anything up to 400 guests. Larger systems are available on request to cater for any size of event.
It is possible to down size the system to a vocal PA with independent backline amplification only. This is perfect for events that are being held in smaller rooms that would accommodate approximately 80 guests or less.
We can play venues of almost any size. We don't play any louder than is absolutely necessary to create the right atmosphere and have years of experience creating fabulous weddings and parties. We believe that it’s worth paying just a little more to guarantee that your guests will have a memorable evening.
