Also available as a Jazz Trio, Wedding Band or Rat Pack Band in Hampshire, Southampton and Portsmouth

Mike can provide any line-up from a duo (piano and bass) right up to a full jazz band. Hampshire seems to be where a lot of his performances are at the moment. It is a highly populated area and Hampshire wedding bands are in great demand. There also seems to be many other parties and events. A lot of the smaller weddings go for the trio (piano, bass and vocals or piano bass and drums) while the larger ones tend to go for the full  jazz band.
Hampshire does have a vast array of venues from small inns to large hotels and Mike can tailor the line-up to match the space available at the venue and your budget.

Most of the music Mike performs is sourced from the great jazz standards and he also plays quite a lot of Rat Pack material. All the musicians he uses are very versatile and can play a variety of styles. Mikes music sits perfectly at any wedding or party whether you book just a duo with piano and bass or the full jazz band. He can provide music for every part of your wedding day including classical solo piano for the ceremony. Please visit the wedding page for more information about wedding services.

Hampshire is steeped in naval history and it is no surprise that there are quite a lot of military weddings. Hampshire has many interesting venues from naval forts and ships to castles and museums.
