Blue Note Lounge Corporate Jazz is a 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.
Blue Note Lounge take up minimal space and are discreet with equipment, being fully aware of the visual importance of wedding and corporate function work. Blue Note Lounge Dress is lounge suit unless otherwise indicated.

Blue Note Lounge

…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.

Blue Note Lounge Jazz Band options:
Trio – Swinging, sophisticated and atmospheric background music.
Quartet – (instrumental trio + saxophone). Swinging, sophisticated and atmospheric Background music. Adding sax to the trio gives a fuller and more dynamic sound.
Optional Quartet – (trio + male vocals/trumpet). A more diverse option. Able to play background music but also provide more upbeat music for dancing. The most popular and cost effective function option.
Quintet – (trio + saxophone and male vocals/trumpet). For where budget allows. This is the 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 a performance. This option is available on request
The Blue Note Lounge instrumental Trio or Trio + saxophone are best for swinging, sophisticated and atmospheric background music while if dancing is anticipated adding our vocalist is a must. For longer functions clients often like to have background music during pre dinner drinks and food service followed by dancing. The Blue Note Lounge Jazz Band normally plays instrumental music for the first 1 or 2 sets and then with vocals as a contrast for the last couple of sets.

This band 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 Blue Note Lounge.”
