Artisan Jazz

About

Containing all the classic ingredients to create that authentic small Jazz band sound, Artisan Jazz is perfect entertainment for corporate events, product launches, birthdays and of course weddings.

Available as both a vocal and instrumental led ensemble these are some of the finest young Jazz musicians in the UK having worked with the likes of Gwilym Simcock, Kenny Wheeler, Kit Downes, Empirical, Soweto Kinch and many more.

The band's repertoire includes hundreds of jazz standards, ballads, latin and swing tunes as well as more commercial jazz that can be tailored for just background music or to be more exposed.

Great sound, great musicians… An incredible wealth of talent.

Michael - Barclays

A very professional service and exactly what we needed. The guys looked very smart and tailored the music perfectly for our event. Thank you.

Jessica - Canary Wharf

Just wanted to say thank you so much for performing at my fathers 60th birthday party on Saturday. He loves Jazz and was hugely impressed.

Andrew - Cambridge

What a great vocalist, not heard a voice like that in a long time. It was an absolute pleasure to hear her sing with the band.
