Whether you want Rat Pack swing standards or Miles Davis style cool jazz The Jazz Rats can create a sophisticated ambience for any occasion.
Expect numbers by Harry Connick Jr, Michael Buble, Jamie Cullum, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Chet Baker and many more! The band boasts a line-up of some of the best musicians on the UK jazz scene, so you can be assured of a slick, professional, and creative performance every time.
The band have a wealth of experience playing at all types of event and are the perfect choice if you're looking for a stylish and classy jazz band for wedding, party, or corporate event.
Whilst The Jazz Rats can of course play music that you can dance to, they don't specialise in getting people up to dance.

This is the perfect band for those that want some nice music that they can hold a conversation over, with maybe a little dancing at the end!
