Sharp 7 Swing Jazz Band

Return to Previous Page

Sharp Seven are an exceptional outfit, a young and dynamic swing jazz band based in Birmingham. Formed by experienced jazz drummer Billy Weir, these talented musicians will perform the very best in swing jazz at any social occasion, be it a wedding, family party or corporate event.

“This young, professional swing jazz band will tailor a unique performance to complement and enhance your special occasion…”

Professionally trained in music, and honing his rhythmic skills from a very young age, Billy has been extensively involved in the National Youth Jazz Collective and South West Music School. His wittily-entitled ensemble comprises twin saxophones, vocals, piano, guitar, bass and drums.

However, a more compact outfit is suitable for smaller audiences in more intimate venues. From an elegant and sophisticated trio playing gentle background music to a full-throated swinging seven-piece, Sharp Seven’s adaptable line-up can be tailored to suit the requirements of the event.

Their extensive repertoire is brimful of classic swing jazz hits, including ‘Night And Day’, ‘It Might As Well Be Spring’ and ‘I Get A Kick Out Of You’. The musicians have a wealth of experience under their belts, having performed at prestigious events in venues all around the UK. As and when required, Sharp Seven always travel equipped with a state-of-the-art-PA system to balance and enhance the sound and amplify the music.

As well as offering a flexible line-up, a bespoke set-list can be specifically tailored to complement the unique character of each individual event.

Atmospheric background music for a drinks reception or a dynamic stageshow to fill a dancefloor, Sharp Seven will create a night to remember!

  • Classic swing jazz hits from talented young musicians
  • Extensive repertoire, set-list tailored to your event
  • Top-of-the-range PA system for a crystal-clear sound

    Jim's Gig

    November 19, 2014 - 7:22 pm

    Just wanted to say how much we at Birmingham Jazz enjoyed the gig. The whole ensemble was superb with excellent solos all round, but what really impressed me was the new and original material – both sophisticated and immediately engaging – a rare combination in my experience!
