Something Blue Piano Duo

Return to Previous Page

The well-known classics…songs from the shows…a spot of pop…jazz standards…it’s the perfect musical entertainment for any celebration.

“From genteel classics to stylish jazz, Something Blue presents a musical kaleidoscope with tremendous talent and versatility…”

Something Blue is a duo offering a surprisingly wide and popular repertoire. Both classically-trained musicians, Elly plays flute (and piano) while Tessa adds saxophone (and piano) to their partnership. The ability of each musician to alternate between her principal topline melody instrument and an accompanimental piano role enables these two to incorporate the perfect combination of traditional and more modern styles of repertoire.

From Bach to Bacharach, Beethoven to Bebop or Debussy to De Blues – Elly and Tessa confidently perform selected examples from all these diverse musical genres and styles, and plenty more besides. And as if this versatility were not enough, it’s all beautifully presented with superb musicality and flair. If you like, you can even compile a bespoke personalised playlist, choosing a programme of specific pieces from Something Blue’s extensive repertoire – they’ll be delighted to perform your favourites. Amplification is generally only needed if they bring an electric piano.

Something Blue serves up a tantalising selection of jazz, pop and classical music spanning over three centuries, creating the ideal atmosphere of sophistication that will make any occasion, be it a wedding, a birthday celebration, a garden party or a corporate event, very special indeed.

  • Talented duo presenting a vast and varied repertoire 
  • Happy to tailor a bespoke playlist just for your event
  • No need for amplification, perfect for intimate occasions

    We had many comments on the lovely music and how wonderful the atmosphere was when guests arrived to have your delightful playing wafting in the air. Thank you so much for the trouble free set up and clearing away, and I hope we can use you again in the not too distant future.
