A smoky-voiced singer of timeless jazz standards, bossa nova and more, Andrea (aka Little Black Dress) is a rising star on the UK jazz scene - available as a duo (voice & piano/guitar) through to a quintet.

Whether you want a background 'cocktail' jazz duo to play during a drinks or dinner reception, or a full Rat Pack-style swing band to dance the night away, Andrea and her musicians will provide the perfect jazz music for your event.  Her voice is timeless and smoky - think Diana Krall or Julie London! - and her repertoire of swinging jazz, smoochy bossa nova and gorgeous ballads is bound to be a hit with guests of any age or background.

Andrea is an experienced performer at jazz nights, functions and weddings nationwide, and the venues she has played include: Ronnie Scott's, 606 Club, Kensington Palace, Eastnor Castle, Chandos House and BAFTA. Her clients have included Jumeirah Hotels, the Royal Navy and the University of Oxford - and in 2008, she had a two-month residency at the 5-star G Hotel in Malaysia.

Andrea is available as a duo with either piano or guitar, and a number of larger combinations up to sax, trumpet, bass and drums for dancing.

What people say Help

  • We booked Little Black Dress with keyboard, drum and double bass for our wedding this summer and they were fantastic! Before the day we were worried that people wouldn't dance to the jazzy music but we were absolutely wrong, guests loved the band and the songs and wished we had booked them for another hour. They built up such great atmosphere, that people feel their body cells become alive as soon as they entered the marquee.

    We enjoyed their performance very much, huge thank you to both Andrea and her band. Wish we could sit down next time just to listen and relax.

    Lin, Wedding, London, July 2016
  • We were very pleased with our choice of Little Black Dress for our evening entertainment at our wedding. They were brilliant and completely suited the mood we were trying to capture that evening. They arrived with plenty of time to spare, were nice people to deal with and happy to be flexible on our choices of music to be played. Using the website was easy to book them and gave us a good insight to what they were actually going to be like on the night. Everyone who came to the wedding thought they were brilliant!

    Alison, Wedding, Hampshire, May 2016
  • We hired Little Black Dress as a three piece and have to say that they were absolutely brilliant. We wanted entertainment for the ceremony and drinks reception and they really fitted the laid-back jazzy mood that we were looking for and they set a great atmosphere. The booking process was simple, as soon as we reserved the act, we were able to contact them directly to discuss song choice and requirements. Andrea was really helpful in the lead up to the day with song selections, we had a few songs that we wanted them to perform, left the rest to the band and they didn't disappoint one bit. We had so many compliments from our guests, everyone thought that they were great!

    Diego, Wedding, Leicestershire, October 2015
  • Andrea and her band were just fantastic at our wedding reception… They were so friendly and amenable, their music complemented the mood of both the drinks and dinner perfectly - and she looked divine! All our guests were in awe of them - I can't recommend them highly enough.

    Emma C., Wedding, Surrey, August 2015
  • Andrea always goes down really well at our venue. She has a very warm presence on stage, sings a great repertoire of songs, and is always highly professional in her work. I fully recommend her.

    Owner/Manager, Jazz venue, London, July 2015
  • We received masses of compliments on Andrea’s performance at our wedding party…Her gorgeous, easy-listening voice - accompanied by a brilliant guitar player - was the perfect backdrop to the first part of our evening’s celebrations.

    Tracy T., Wedding, London, June 2015
  • A sultry voice and a sparkling personality... Andrea is hugely enjoyable. She performed at the festival to critical acclaim, singing both jazz standards and modern songs with flair and style. Definitely someone on the fast track.

    Mark A., Jazz Festival Organiser, Buckinghamshire
  • Andrea's sultry tones drew compliments on more than one occasion during the course of the evening and helped make the Jumeirah Gala Awards Dinner a fantastic and successful event!
