Here you can listen and watch our bands in action, as well as choose from instrumental or vocal led groups.

Vocal Duo

This has the benefit of three musical ingredients, but with two musicians. Our singer/pianists can perform with saxophone or double bass. This is a good option for drinks receptions, smaller parties, hotel lounges and restaurants.

Vocal Trio

Vocals/piano, saxophone and double bass gives a lovely rich, ambient sound and is a classic combo, ideal for medium-sized events where you want to create a feeling of intimacy as well as atmosphere. We can also provide a quartet with the addition of drums if you want to swing the night away with some classic upbeat songs. 

This is ideal for elegant events and hotel lounges. It offers a smooth elegance, and our singer/pianists can sing your favourite songs, but without the vocals being too obtrusive. It is also perfect if space or budget is more limited.

Solo Singer/Pianist


Nothing says sophistication quite like the smooth sounds of a vocal- led jazz group. At Sophisticated Sounds we specialise in the unique sound and flexibility a singer/pianist can provide. Offering the benefit of 2for1 instruments, this is a popular option. You can also mix and match and have piano and vocals for your whole event, or a mixture of instrumental tunes and vocal songs, all from the same musician. Take a listen to some of the line-ups below.

The addition of drums to this ensemble gives the music a real swing. This group is a great choice if you want some relaxed and sophisticated dinner jazz earlier in the evening, followed by classic upbeat songs to swing the night away later on.

If you prefer a vocal-led group with a stand-up singer, we can also create this type of band for you.
