"Joy, Sparkle and Elegance" - OCJ for your Special Event
When an event is in serious need of good, celebratory music to break the ice, then Who Ya Gonna Call?
Oxford Classic Jazz, of course! At a remarkably reasonable cost, you can engage anything from a duo to a sextet. Generally, the band consists of a quartet, usually with clarinet/sax, percussion and bass/tuba complimenting the piano/vocals of Nick Gill. But often the band is enhanced with the sweet tones of a specialist singer or some punchy brass in the form of trumpet or trombone. All the musicians who play with the band are highly experienced and skilled practitioners of hot, syncopated jazz inspired by the the 1920s/30s.
We feature the ragtime of Scott Joplin and the masters of the Jazz Age – Fats Waller, Cole Porter, George Gershwin et al. It has been described as “sheer elegance” and “bottled sunshine” by satisfied customers. Easy to dance to and played on real instruments at benign volume levels, our performances captivate audiences with their combination of musical interplay, delightful melodies and a beguiling swing, which is both joyful and seductive. Whether you require a six-piece band for a village hall show or wedding dance, or a background duo to add sparkle to a party, this classy music will guarantee the success of your event.
Needless to say the band is perfect for 1920s Theme Parties, Gangster and Moll Nights or Rent Parties!
