Graham Pike Quartet specialise in cool, stylish jazz standards and Latin.

4 piece line up includes :

Chromatic harmonica, trumpet & flugelhorn, vocals / Piano / Bass / Drums & Percussion

To suit your event and budget - you may just require some cool, ambient background, maybe without vocals? We can be hired either as a duo, add a double bass for the trio, or the full quartet can come with either a kit or a percussionist. If you want something bigger, we have a pool of top quality professionals.....add an extra percussionist (we particularly like this for Latin grooves), sax, guitar, violin?            

............Just imagine!

(If you simply want some cocktail jazz piano, our pianist is available to play solo).

Dress to suit occasion.

Rates : Naturally, depends entirely on your requirements and distance.

Thank you so much for a brilliant contribution to the celebrations at the wedding. You and the band were brilliant. Not only in terms of fantastic playing, which was top-notch, but also in just being so accommodating and helpful with the whole afternoon/evening.

We also appreciated your flexibility not to mention saving the speeches with your microphone.
We are really grateful

We were all extremely pleased with the band and how you all hepled make our dad's 70th birthday party so special and a night we'll all enjoy remembering for many years to come. As was evident, my dad thoroughly enjoyed himself and you and the band played a big part in that. Ending on 'Song for My Father' was a beautiful ending to a fabulous night. Thank you all.
