Sweet Ade is a 6 piece jazz band – refreshingly different, fun and entertaining. We play a wide variety of music ranging from the late 1800’s to the present day, balancing well-known tunes with little heard gems. We play a unique, colourful array of instruments -recorders, ukuleles, clarinet, saxophones, accordion, washboard, drums, sousaphone, piano and vocals. We have wide appeal not only to jazz lovers but to people of all ages not necessarily familiar with jazz who will be surprised and delighted by the happy atmosphere we create.
We’re available for all kinds of functions including weddings, parties, corporate events and house concerts, indoor and outdoor.



More Info

We'll tailor our musical menu for your event. We can include some or all of: semi-acoustic background music; music to provide a happy and not too loud backdrop during your meal; lively music to get all ages, from kids to the elderly, up on the dance floor; an entertaining and varied concert style segment or full show; well-known jazz standards; less well-known tuneful gems; jazzy and creative versions of a wide variety of music from many genres; novelty tunes; comedy; tunes for kids.
We offer a no obligation chat in which we can discuss your event, your particular requirements and answer any questions. If you decide to book us, we'll be happy to assist you in organising your run sheet and you'll have the opportunity to fine tune your musical preferences.
We promise that we're "different" and fun and that we'll make your event enjoyable and memorable.

About Booking

We strongly recommend that all communication with Sweet Ade be kept within CrowdPleaser's secure quoting and booking platform. We can only guarantee deposits paid through the CrowdPleaser website. You should also make sure their quote includes their cancellation and payment terms.

We are fully self sufficient with all our equipment. We do require access to power (although please note that although we use amplification we are not a particularly loud band).
We usually allow an hour to set up and another to pack up - we do not charge for this time.
We are happy to perform indoors and outdoors and we're able to operate in a relatively small space. Unless it's a very short event, we would generally require a covered performance area. The area also needs to be reasonably flat.
