Band sizes to suit every occasion
The band is a 4-piece as standard (vocals, keyboard, bass & drums) with optional extras to suit your individual tastes and requirements (saxophones, trumpet, additional vocals, guitar). Examples of the various band sizes can be found on our audio and video pages.
Weddings, parties, awards ceremonies, charity events…
Every year The Jazz Reporters perform at a variety of different events throughout Kent, including corporate functions, awards ceremonies, charity events and Christmas parties, as well as numerous weddings, birthdays and other private events. Being such a highly versatile jazz band which also performs soul & Motown, the music we play appeals to a very wide audience which has proved popular entertainment for all types of occasion.
We have had the pleasure of working at many of the county’s finest venues, including Bickley Manor Hotel (Bromley), Cooling Castle Barn (Rochester), The Hilton Hotel (Maidstone), Leeds Castle, Lympne Castle and The Turkey Mill (Maidstone).
Live music for events in Kent and nationwide
As well as performing for weddings, parties and functions in Kent, The Jazz Reporters regularly work in London and the other surrounding counties. However we are happy to travel as far as necessary, and often find ourselves performing in all corners of the country and occasionally overseas!
