The Jazz Emperors
Led by one of most charismatic singers on the UK jazz scene, this top-drawer jazz band proves time and again why they’re the leading jazz/swing outfit for weddings, events and functions. They have entertained royalty twice and been booked by many celebrities/TV & sports stars, as well as by luxe brands like Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Reel Art Press for promotions in New York, the Far East & London.

Loved for their unrivalled renditions of 1950s/60s era American songbook & jazz standards, their large repertoire list also covers all era’ s of jazz/swing: everything from hot 20′s jazz Charleston style, 30′s Golden Age favs, 40′s swing/jive, 50′s/60′s big band swing & Rat Pack, latin/bossa nova, right up to modern swing a la Michael Buble or contemporary jazz. And with a sprinkling of jazz-ed up pop/soul anthems on the list too makes them perfect for weddings, parties or corporate events.

A fine romance
A foggy day

Call me irresponsible
Can’t take my eyes off you
Cheek to cheek
Come dance with me
Come fly with me
Crazy little thing called love
Crazy Love
Cry me a river
Everybody loves somebody sometime
Every breath you take
Fascinating rhythm
Feeling good
Fly me to the moon
For once in my life
Gee baby aint I good to you

Girl from Ipanema
Georgia on my mind

Haven't met you yet
Have you met Miss Jones
Heartache tonight
Hit the road Jack
How about you
How sweet it is
I can’t give you anything but love
I could have danced all night
I don’t get around much anymore
I get a kick out of you
I left my heart in San Francisco
I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
In the wee small hours
I only have eyes for you
Is you is or is you ain’t my baby
It don’t mean a thing (If it ain’t got that swing)
It had better be tonight
It had to be you
Its delovely
It’s only a paper moon
It was a very good year
I’ve got the world on a string
I’ve got you under my skin
I’ve grown accustomed to her face
I wanna be around
I wanna be like you (oh oo bee doo)
I won’t dance
Just in time
Just one of those things
King of the road
Kissing a fool
Learnin’ the blues
Lets face the music and dance
Lets fall in love
Let there be love

Love me or leave me

Old devil moon
On an evening in Roma
One for my baby
On the sunny side of the street

Pennies from heaven
Portrait of my love
Put your head on my shoulder
Puttin on the Ritz
Quando, Quando, Quando
Rags to riches
Route 66
Satin Doll
Somethings gotta give
Something stupid
Song for you
Steppin out with my baby
Strangers in the night
That old black magic
That old devil moon
That’s all
That’s amore
That’s life
The best is yet to come
The Charleston
The good life
The lady is a tramp
The look of love
The way you look tonight
They can’t take that away from me
Too close for comfort
When I fall in love
When you’re smiling
Wives and lovers

You make me feel so young
Young at heart
You're nobody till somebody loves you
