The Ensembles jazz option repertoire consists of well known 'standards' taken mainly from 'The Great American Songbook’. Composers such as Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Rogers & Hart and Irving Berlin.

An example of song list is below.

A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
All blues
All of me
All the things you are
Angel eyes
Autumn leaves
Beautiful love
Black Orpheus
Blue bossa
Body and soul
Bye bye blackbird
Can’t get started
Cheek to cheek
Come fly with me
Don’t get around much anymore
Don’t worry about me
Drop me off in Harlem
Everything happens to me
Embraceable you
Exactly like you
Fly me to the moon
Foggy day
Gee baby ain’t I good to you
Georgia on my mind
Girl from impanima
Have you met Miss Jones
I got rhythm
I love you
I remember you
In a sentimental mood
It had to be you
I've never been in love before
Let there be love
Let’s fall in love
Like someone in love
Lover Man
Lullaby of Birdland
My funny valentine
Night and day
On green dolphin street
One note samba
Our love is here to stay
So what
Softly as a morning sunrise
Someday my prince will come
Song for my farther
Stella by starlight
St. Thomas
Stormy Monday
Takin' a chance on love
Take the A train
Take 5
What is this thing called love
What’s new
You made me love you
You make me feel so young

And many more………….......

The band really did exceed our expectations. We have had loads of positive comments from guests, not to mention the girls about the lead singer...... Thank you all so much for a night to remember. We would definitely recommend you.

A number of the wedding guests are musicians and were very appreciative of the band's proficiency and professionalism. Everyone liked their performance, they got everyone dancing and inter-acted well with the audience. The bandleader was very helpful and friendly in the run-up to the event. We would recommend them.
