ABOUT US

Lou's Sextet plays a variety of music - Swing, Mainstream Jazz, Latin, Blues, Jump Jive and numbers with a more funky vibe. Our great vocalist adds a touch of Sinatra as well as lots of other styles with his great voice and trade-mark hat.

Whether you’re after a mellow, swinging background for something like a reception or an upbeat, lively performance for a pub, party or function, we can adapt to the mood of the event. Our skilled and experienced musicians see to that, as well, of course, as our wide and varied repertoire.

Presentation is very important to us, and we are well rehearsed, dress up and 'put on a show'. We like the band to be a unit, musically and as a group of friends and think our enjoyment comes through in our music.

We play at parties, anniversaries, weddings, charity events, supper dances and, of course, pubs.

We are also keen to play specialist jazz venues.

Hi Louise, Dot and I, would like to thank yourself and the band members, for helping us to celebrate our party on Saturday, the music was spot on, we have had loads of good reaction to the choice of having a live band. Hope you continue to keep it going, and we would be more than happy to recommend you in the future. Regards from Jeff

I am the landlady at the Bell in Chartridge, for about 3 years now, we have welcomed Louise and her musicians at the pub on a very regular basis. The set up is a "dinner Jazz". It has been very successful each time. Louise uses a repertoire carefully chosen which works very well with customers enjoying their meals. They will be playing very soon again at the Bell and I know they will be incredible as usual.

You so obviously all love what you do as regards 'Lou's Sextet'. And you give a very personal service which is so refreshing. Love what you play. We loved having you play for us. So did our guests. Everyone enjoyed the band. Please pass on our grateful thanks to all the band. Pleased that you enjoyed the evening too. We received many 'thank you' cards and messages with special note as to the quality of the music. You can't ask for more. It will be a while until we celebrate like that again. Thank you for making the evening so special for us. Very memorable.
