Charlie Hearnshaw band offers jazz, latin jazz and French music. They like to play a mix of the above to provide a varied program with a broad appeal.
The band features Charlie Hearnshaw on clarinets, sax and sometimes piano. Maxine Green is the guitarist/vocalist.

Don't be a stranger; get in touch. Give Charlie a ring or send him an email and tell him what you have in mind. He will be happy to offer advice but won't try to do a hard sell. Au contraire, if he feels that his band is not right for your event he will not accept the booking.
For your Wedding Ceremony and for drinks and photos afterwards we offer a duo or trio. We can usually play the music of your choice, classical, jazz, pop, rock or whatever, to walk down the aisle to.
For the evening of your wedding we propose our Munjenta Café Latin Jazz Quintet, which can play chilled and in the background or upfront and dancy and usually plays both as the evening progresses.
Our most recent jazz project is
How loud is the band?
Charlie usually plays his sax and clarinets acoustically, i.e. no microphone and his band play at low volume to suit.
The singer has a mic of course so we bring our PA. You may of course opt for an entirely instrumental program with no singing.
The bass and guitar use amps, so we are not usually entirely acoustic, although we can be entirely acoustic if there is no electricity available.
If we are playing for a function (wedding, party etc) we like guests to be able to chat comfortably while the band is playing. If we are giving a concert people will be listening so we do not need to play loud.
