Cool Combo Jazz

Print Frindly View
Description
Cool Combo gives you the genuine Jazz experience from one of Melbourne's best working band. The group believes a good band can add atmosphere to an event without drawing the focus away from proceedings but can also provide entertainment when required. Corporate clients include BHP, L'Oreal, Ericsson, Ernst and Young, IBM, GE, Pfizer, Accenture and Telstra. In 2001 the group completed a six month contract at the Hotel Sofitel, Vietnam.

....."We strongly recommend the Cool Combo."

Yours sincerely,

Jacques Serpollier

General Manager

Hotel Sofitel Saigon

Vietnam

The genre is Jazz but more specifically the sound is a hot blend of swing/blues/bossa nova and funk. Inspiration and repertoire comes from the swing of Louis Armstrong and Oscar Peterson, standards and show tunes of  Frank Sinatra and Michael Buble’, smooth and subtle bossa nova of Stan Getz and Antonio Carlos Jobim and the soul, R+B and pop of George Benson, Ray Charles and Van Morrison.  

The band takes up minimal space and is discreet with equipment, being fully aware of the visual importance of wedding and corporate function work. Dress is lounge suit unless otherwise indicated. Cool Combo is also able to perform in an 'acoustic-unplugged' setting (video footage available) which is ideal for pre-dinner drinks to create some atmosphere as guests arrive either outside or in a venue foyer. We can then move into the main dining room for the reception.

  Cool Combo options  

Trio 1 -(instrumental – guitar, double bass, drums/percussion) - Swinging, sophisticated and atmospheric background music

Trio 2– (with vocals - male vocals/trumpet/bass, guitar, drums/percussion) - Swinging, sophisticated and atmospheric background music but also able to provide upbeat music for dancing. Ideal for smaller functions or where space or budget are a consideration

Quartet 1– (instrumental trio 1 + saxophone). Swinging, sophisticated and atmospheric background music. Adding sax to the trio gives a fuller and more dynamic sound

Quartet 2– (trio 1 + male vocals/trumpet). A more diverse option. Able to play background music but also provide upbeat music for dancing. Our most popular complete function option

Quintet – (trio 1 + saxophone and male vocals/trumpet). For where budget allows. This is our most dynamic and versatile option for providing both background music and for dancing

*Some clients also request to include both a female and male vocalist for our performance, please contact to discuss timing details for this option.

Extensive video footage of the band is available
