Our jazz duo is the smallest and most compact jazz band we offer. Typically double bass and saxophone, but we are more than happy to provide other lineups if requested. Our broad repertoire consists of jazz standards from the 1920s-1960s.
Drinks receptions, dinners, outdoor events, ceremonies.
The duo is completely acoustic which means we don't require power. This, coupled with our small size, means we can be highly flexible in terms of where you want us to play.
A common lineup in jazz, a trio can provide just the right level of atmosphere for a wide range of events, which might be why it's one of our most popular groups. Playing a similar repertoire to the jazz duo, this is the ideal option if you have the space.
Drinks receptions, dinners, outdoor events, ceremonies, corporate events, food festivals and birthday parties. We've even played for royalty on more than one occasion!
This group's larger size makes it ideal as background music at a medium to large event.
Our most popular band for evening entertainment, the Hot Shoes is an energetic swing ensemble that guarantees to get your feet tapping with their exciting arrangements from the swing era, modern day, charts and beyond. The band was founded with dancing in mind, but we find that our broad repertoire is popular with all ages and tastes.
This band is so popular we also run a dedicated website just for them! - www.hotshoesswing.com
Main wedding entertainment, swing dance events, Great Gatsby themed parties, corporate events, birthdays, award ceremonies and more!
Why not combine two of our groups with the jazz trio for your wedding reception and the Hot Shoes for your main evening entertainment at a reduced rate?
The Teddy Smith Big Band is a versatile, large jazz ensemble.

The Mañana Collective came about when Cuban flautist Jose Zalba-Smith met some promising musicians from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff. They bonded over their shared love of Latin rhythm and the rest, as they say, is history!
Themed evenings, Festivals, Concerts, Parties, Dinners, Corporate events, Weddings.
The Mañana Collective perform both independently as a small ensemble or as part of a larger group. They love to add Latin American flavour to the mix creating their own arrangements of tunes from Africa, Cuba, Brazil, Venezuela and beyond!
