Boulevard Swing Jazz

Return to Previous Page

The effortless musical swagger of a Boulevard Swing Jazz performance will automatically bring a smile to your lips and a bounce to your step!

“Boulevard Swing Jazz will bring the Hollywood glamour and romance of the swing jazz era to your event…”

Cast your mind back to Hollywood’s Golden Age – and all those wonderful musicals full of songs that thrust ‘Romance’ right up there into the spotlight. Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, Gene Kelly, The Boswell Sisters, Busby Berkeley – high-quality musicianship, dazzling showmanship, liberally laced with American glitz and razzmatazz, all combined to create the unforgettable Swing Jazz Era! It’s the period when the ‘crooner’ was king. Wit, warmth and a wholesome helping of joy were all well-represented in the escapist make-believe of that magical silver screen.

Under the spell of Ian’s splendid singing voice and superb keyboard skills, you’ll sigh, you’ll cry, you’ll laugh the night away. Underscored by his excellent entertainment skills and fine musicianship, Ian’s versatile trio will generate a magical, romantic atmosphere at any venue. Nimble, soulful saxophone and subtle, tasteful drums complete this exceptional ensemble – it’s the perfect musical recipe for any truly civilised party!

An engaging, stylish and swinging performance of evergreen classics and standards can be guaranteed every time with Boulevard Swing Jazz.

    Ian and his group performed at our wedding in December and we loved them! We wanted our Sunday wedding to be low-key and relaxed with ‘Sunday afternoon jazz’ and Ian’s trio were a perfect fit. They played a selection of upbeat classics during the drinks reception and then later as background music during the meal which completed the ambience perfectly. It was exactly what we had hoped for. They were very professional and accommodating and even stayed for another set which we negotiated with them on the day. All our guests complimented our choice. We would highly recommend them.
