David White’s East Side Jazz Band is a professional band that performs as a trio, four or five piece group. The number of players is usually determined by the size of the venue, number of guests and budget.
We play mainly swing style but can play some Latin rhythms, a waltz and rhythm and blues. (See our Song List). The band has a good vocal repertoire.
The fee depends on the number of players and the playing time in hours. Please see the agent who sent you to this website for more a precise quote.
The band is covered by public liability insurance.
We can play at a pleasant conversational level, for background music, cocktail parties or pre dinner.
Line up: We use trumpet, saxophone, guitar and double bass. Drums are added for a five piece.
