Experienced, versatile London jazz trio, performing jazzy takes on pop music from the Beatles to Pharrell as well as classic jazz. Suitable for mellow background music at weddings, corporate events and more! Available with drums and vocals for dancing.

Midnight Blue provide a different take on the classic jazz trio format. The band play classy and sophisticated original arrangements of timeless and current chart hits that your guests will know and love: a fresh and unique musical experience!

The band have a large number of performances in prestigious venues under their belt, including Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, The O2 Arena, The Barbican, Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Abbey Road Studios, The Ritz, Wembley Stadium and the NEC in front of many famous faces, including Tony Blair, Daniel Craig, Jamie Callum, Prince Charles, Barry from Eastenders and The King of Malaysia.

Midnight Blue's repertoire spans quirky takes on classic and modern pop by the likes of Nirvana, Pharrell and Kings of Leon to classic jazz tunes such as Summertime, Fly Me To The Moon and Take The 'A' Train. They can adapt themselves to your needs for any setting or occasion; their core line-up (guitar, double bass and saxophone) is perfect for background music during receptions or garden parties. They regularly expand to include trumpet and/or drums (recommended for dancing).

Previous corporate clients of the band include Tesco, Apple, Natwest Bank, Claridges, and BMW. To add to their musical talents, the band made a recent bid for the status of "fashion icons" when they were featured in a recent fashion shoot by the Sunday Express!

Their signature "jazz pop" is unique to Midnight Blue- individual jazz arrangements of classic and modern rock and pop music from the Beatles and Bill Withers to Rihanna and Pharrell. This is ideal for younger audiences, but the band are happy to customise their sets according to the tastes and ages of your guests, combining pop arrangements with classic jazz by Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, Sinatra and more.

Please note that Midnight Blue's 3-piece line-up is suitable for background music only. If you'd like music for dancing we recommend booking them with a drummer and vocalist.
