During the Golden Age of Jazz many of the most famous and memorable songs of the 20th Century were written. Composers such as Rodgers and Hart, Cole Porter, the Gershwins and Harold Arlen wrote the songs and many prominent versions were performed and recorded by singers as diverse as Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra, Fats Waller and Nat 'King' Cole. Of course many of the songs are less famous and include some 'rare gems' which necessitate performance in order to keep them alive - this is something that Cate and her band are keen to achieve - so listen out for those unusual songs amongst the classics.

Vocal Jazz is suited to so many events requiring music and appeals to a wide variety of people. This makes it an ideal choice for Weddings and Anniversary Parties as well as Corporate Entertainment. Whether you choose the Trio, Quartet or Quintet, you can be assured of the highest quality live music, a professional and punctual service and exciting entertainment for you and your guests
