Bands led by Charlie Hearnshaw

Our jazz band is based in Devon.
We play as a duo, trio, quartet, quintet or sextet.

Using more or fewer of the same musicians, we are to present bands which play in three different and distinct styles. All of our music is either pure jazz or jazzy.

  • Jazz & swing duo, trio or quartet
  • Latin jazz quartet and quintet
  • French duo or trio

So if you are putting on a French evening, for example, we have a band that plays French music.

We can vary the size of the band to suit your budget.

Left to our own devices we will play a mix of jazz, swing and latin with a sprinkling of French songs and perhaps a couple of jazzed-up classical pieces.
