The Northside Nottingham Jazz Band are a flexible Nottingham Jazz Band also available for bookings in Derby, Chesterfield, Newark, Mansfield and surrounding areas.
We draw our inspiration from the 30’s and 40’s, the ‘golden age’ of jazz: Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra and other great singers and instrumentalists. We also play songs from the classic musicals of the first half of the 20th Century that make up the majority of what we now know as standards.
We play for private functions as well as pubs and restaurants around Nottingham. The trio are often booked as ‘background music’ for weddings or in restaurants and we’re not offended by it! We take pride in being able to blend into the background, becoming a part of the ambience, rather than a focal point.
We’re also experienced at playing for dancing, for which we recommend a larger band. We can offer a number of jazz band configurations, starting with a vocal led trio and ranging up to a septet for dancing. For more information, see our options page.
