A big occasion deserves a big swingin' band, and B# (that's 'B Sharp' if you're new to music speak) is Melbourne's best!
This 18 piece band consists of Melbourne's highest calibre and experienced jazz and ‘session’ musicians - including those that are regular band members in various theatre productions and on TV shows.
Combined with B#’s ability to re-create the magic of the 30s, 40s and 50s swing eras, through to horn filled 60s and 70s dance anthems, you’ll be WOW-ed! Sharp by name, sharp by nature - lush sounds, slick presentation, professional standards - we make it easy for you!
Prefer a smaller band? Easy! Choose from B# 11, 7, 5 & 3 piece options.
Here’s a snapshot of the diverse repertoire we’ve got set to go across a range of band size options. Fingers crossed you see this as an ultimate, sophisticated mix to pick from for your event:
• Classic Swing – 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s. From ‘cotton club’ / trad jazz, to mid-century swingers, including loads of crooner and swingin’ chanteuse classics (Sinatra, Dean Martin, Bobby Darin, Michael Bublé, Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day, Peggy Lee, Natalie Cole, et al).
• Salsa / Latino (Tito Puente, Celia Cruz, Ricky Martin, et al)
• London Swingin’ 60s (Dusty Springfield, Petula Clark, Tom Jones, Frankie Valli, et al)
• Horn Filled, 60s & 70s Groove & Funk (Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, The Emotions, Ray Charles, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Barry White, The Doors, James Brown, Sam Cooke, Jackson 5, Nancy Wilson, et al)
• Rock ‘n’ Roll (Elvis, The Beatles, The Monkees, Brian Setzer, et al)
