Vibrant and versatile London-based cool jazz trio featuring flute and classical guitar, flexible enough to play anywhere – whether your living room, your hall or your garden! Can expand up to a sextet.

The Sunshine Jazz Band are a cool jazz trio comprising a blend of musicians, who can expand into a quartet, quintet or even sextet featuring saxophones, flute, double bass, classical guitar, drums and vocals. Since forming the band have played at festivals, street parties, weddings, riverboat trips, corporate functions and private parties across the UK. Venues include the Coin Street Festival, Brick Lane Festival, The Millennium Dome, The Thames Festival, HMS President, Savoy Hotel, Holland Park Orangery, Center Parcs, The Royal Academy Of Arts, and Windsor Castle for the Prince of Wales.

The band can play background dinner jazz or cocktail music with dance music later on and can adapt their sets to all sorts of occasions. The trio is recommended for more intimate settings whilst the quintet, quartet and sextet are great for groove, playing calypso, ska and latin styles. The Sunshine Jazz Band can also add drums to the mix if you're after an evening of dancing!

What people say Help

  • I just wanted to say thank you for playing at our wedding. We thought the band were great, as did everyone else. We were very pleased with the way you'd taken our comments on board regarding which types of music to play.

    Steve, Wedding, London, July 2016
  • Thank you for such an excellent performance on Sunday. The music was all I had hoped for and more; everyone enjoyed your style and the fact they could converse and still enjoy the music. The Captain was full of praise, commenting that you are far better than a lot of their usual players.

    Mike, Private boat party, London, August 2015
  • Thank you for a great performance last week. With lengthier speeches than anticipated we seemed to eat into your playing time, but you were most adaptable and fitted in well with the changing programme. Well done on some superb sets!

    British Association of Journalists, Corporate event, London, June 2015
