    Basie Beats

    Suave, cool, and sophisticated, Basie Beats are a glitzy 5-piece band who'll introduce your guests to jazz, swing, and vintage songs in a performance that will be remembered for years to come!

    With glamorous renditions of jazz, swing, vintage, Postmodern Jukebox, Bolero, Latin jazz, Cuban songs, and modern pop music in a vintage style, Basie Beats balance exquisite lead vocals, mellow guitar, enchanting saxophone, bright drums and toe-tapping double bass for an unrivalled sound in every performance.

    Blending jazz and swing from the 20s to the 40s, Postmodern Jukebox style remixes of classic pop songs, and exotic, vintage Cuban songs, Boleros, Bossa Nova and Latin Jazz, Basie Beats' repertoire is a sumptuous cocktail of styles perfect for 1920s and 30s themed events, indulgent Great Gatsby gatherings, and vintage-styled parties, weddings and corporate functions.

    Basie Beats alow you to customise their line-up and performance style; from a slick duo to the standard swinging five-piece band, there are options to shift their style from sophisticated background music to upbeat sets perfect for energetic parties.

    Members of the band hail from the UK, Italy and Catalonia, all united by a passion for hot-blooded Latin jazz and smooth vintage swing. They've performed at venues across the country, including Cambridge University and Hanbury Manor.

    Basie Beats will learn your first dance or a special request plus three more live special requests all as part of your evening's entertainment. To ensure there are no awkward silences, playlists are provided in between sets as standard, and Basie Beats come self contained with a PA suitable for up to 150 guests.

    There are lots of optional extras for those who want to add even more to Basie Beat's already spectacular performance! If you want to sing a song with the band, extend the performance by an extra 45 minutes, add an acoustic duo performance, a trio performance, an acoustic solo Spanish guitar set or a jazz quartet performance, simply include this in your enquiry!

    "We hired Homerton college for a dinner venue and were lucky to have Basie Beats perform for our clients. From the beginning they were very professional to deal with and performed beautiful sets ideal as a background jazz music. Our guests were complimenting the group and especially Heather's singing voice. We had an international group and some of our Spanish customers loved Spanish songs. Definitely recommend! 10/10"

    "Dear Basie Beats gorgeous band! You were absolutely marvellous at our party at home and how everyone has been raving about you since then. Everyone commented on your unique trans-generational appeal. You are loved by all! Thank you so so much!! And you allowed our daughter to improvise with you - it was marvellous. :)'
    Party Band Review
    "Love these guys. They were recommended by my daughter's singing teacher and were the icing on the cake. I loved their repertoire. Sleeky sultry smooth cool jazz played unobtrusively whilst we all basked in the sunshine. She has a lovely range ably supported by guitar and saxophone. I have no hesitation in recommending them. Wishing you every success !! 10/10"
