JAZZ DUO or TRIO or QUARTET
Area: Home Counties
Trained: University of Middlesex, Music and Performing Arts BA(Hons)
Repertoire: Familiar American Songbook classics of the 1920s through to the 1960s, in a warm ‘old-school’ swing style.
Profile: The Dappers are an exciting jazz group featuring pianist Michael and double bass player Tom as the base duo of the group. This popular, charismatic pair make a fresh swinging sound that will entertain guests at any event; they most often play for receptions as background music. They complement their exceptional playing with their singing, one smooth & crooning, the other gruff and sassy. Their wonderful singing and arrangements are as smart as their suits. They have been making great swing music together for ten years and their teamwork is the charm of this act. Saxophone/drums can be added to the duo.
“The guys were great and everybody I spoke to really enjoyed them – they were not obtrusive in any way and enhanced the whole atmosphere with their selection of tunes, so we were really pleased and thank you for organising them for me.” John Welch, LordsBM, London.
