PRESTIGE



Prestige is an experienced professional band familiar with the requirements of weddings, private house parties, associations dinner dances, promotional events and company functions in London's top hotels (including a residency at the Park Lane Hilton) together with prestigious venues throughout the country.

Our extensive repertoire caters for all musical tastes and age groups, covering such styles as:

* Blues Brothers *
* Classic Hits from the 60's - 90's *
* Glenn Miller / Jive *
* "Party" favourites *

Experience has shown us that a careful programming of songs, creating the right atmosphere at the right time, has proven to be the key to a successful evening.

Prestige is unique in its ability to feature a Saxophone, Flute and Trumpet, within the 4-piece band. This adds an extra dimension to our sound and repertoire; the famous Saxophone solos of the 60's and Rock 'n' Roll era, Glenn Miller's fabulous Big Band Sound, modern pop ballards featuring the Saxophone and the romantic atmosphere created by the Flute. These are features that are normally only found within bands of 7-piece and upwards.

For the larger venue or that extra special occasion, we can augment up to a 6-piece band with the addition of an extra female Keyboard / Vocalist and Trombonist. Alternatively the band can also decrease in size to a trio. Whatever size of band you may decide on, you can be assured that the excellent quality of the vocalists and musicians within Prestige will guarantee a successful evening enjoyed by all.

The Prestige choice of instrumentation, musicianship and discerning song selection are just some of the reasons why our clients have always booked with confidence. Listen to our demonstration tape and judge for yourself.

We look forward to discussing your requirements further.
Thank you for your interest in Prestige.
