The Rare and the Great

Add something special to your event with The Rare and the Great, a smooth jazzy duo of piano, guitar and harmonizing male vocals!

The Rare and the Great know just what it takes to chill you out with their jazzy-pop afternoon and background set lists, while they've got all the popular, upbeat classics from the 1950s to the present day to get you up on your feet for the evening party. Imagine the mellow sounds of Louis Armstrong, Marvin Gaye and Fleetwood Mac when you're enjoying your afternoon drinks, then take to the stage for some Frankie Valli, Take That, and George Ezra - every expertly crafted cover goes down a treat!

Comprising a professional pianist who has worked on TV and showcased overseas, and a singer-guitarist with repeated airplay on Radio 1, these two talented musicians have years of experience and a refined talent that'll leave a lasting impression and warm memories for all your guests.

The Rare and the Great will learn your first dance or a special request and provide all their own PA equipment. You can book a ceremony performance for the perfect procession, or even just a wedding ceremony pianist performance for some stripped-back elegance. The band also offer duo or trio afternoon acoustic performances, and if you want music between sets, be sure to enquire about their playlist services.

The Rare and the Great bring mellow uplifting music perfect for any event - book them early and don't miss out!
