Hire a Jazz Band for your Wedding


Hiring a jazz band for your wedding drinks reception is a great idea to add a touch of class and sophistication to the proceedings. Whether you prefer a subtle jazz band to play music for your wedding reception as your guests sip their champagne, a swing jazz or big band to wow your guests during and after a sit down dinner or the verve and energy of our Salsa band or Soul Sista band, here at South Coast Jazz you’ll able to enjoy the videos and make an informed decision to what suits you best. Don’t forget to check out our Soul-Sista (and Blues-brother) act for that classic combination to get everyone up on the dance floor with the best of the 70’s, 80s and 90’s.

The booking process is easy and we are here to help if you have any queries or questions. Look through our ‘bands’ page where you’ll find photos and videos of each group. Remember, that most groups can easily be adapted in size and style to suit you individual needs for space and budget. Smaller bands are cheaper and fit into smaller spaces; larger bands will create that special atmosphere to set your wedding apart. We’re here to help with any queries you might have. Once you have made your decision we’ll put the details in our diary and you can leave the rest to us without any wedding planning headaches. We make your life simple – by providing ALL the sound equipment with each booking. So there’s no need to worry about anything else. If you are hiring a jazz band that uses a full PA system ask us about our in-house DJ’s who can use the same audio set-up. (generally the medium to larger groups such as our swing big band, Salsa group and Soul-Sista / Blues Brother outfit) We know the budgets of a wedding can soon start adding up, so sourcing all the music from one place is a good way to save a significant amount on your entertainment budget. Our musicians have played at countless weddings over the years – in barns, village halls, marquis, stately homes, town halls, country cottages, town houses, and everything in-between! We have a reputation for timeliness, dressing smart and making sure the music is just how you like it. We’re not there to show off or massage our ego – the day is yours and we are well versed in gauging the volume and liveliness needed at each event.


Chris came with his big band and played some quiet stuff over dinner and then dancing tunes later on it the evening. Started with jazz and did some R&B to finish. Really enjoyed their playing and would recommend to anyone else who is thinking about hiring them,… 9/10 Shiona Nightingale

Our Wedding

Fabulous jazz band that came to play at our summer fete and garden party – really livened up the whole afternoon with their music. What impressed us most was their flexibility in playing different parts of the afternoon and evening. 10/10 Diana Moyes

The Chris Coull Quintet come every year to play at our community hall. Always to a sell out crowd and what a knock out they are too! These guys are swinging from start to finish. 10/10 Sam Ashton
