Sultry Jazz and Latin at its best

Jen Hawley and the cocktail crew is a highly professional and sophisticated jazz ensemble offering a stylish continental-infused repertoire to soothe or swing your venue.

‘Playing jazz that makes you feel as though you’ve just entered a hip Parisian basement club’

A group who are easy on the eye, and even more pleasing to the ear, their sumptuous repertoire features an enticing mix of jazz and latin standards, 60s lounge and European favourites. Jen and her musicians are able to tone it down or spice it up, with a repertoire full of classic gems and contemporary Latin grooves. This group can offer a vocal selection or instrumentals only.

Jen Hawley is a guitarist and vocalist. She can perform for you solo, in small groups and duos or up to 6 piece bands. Just add double bass, piano, violin, sax or drums… and stir!

Let Jen draw on her years of experience to create the perfect atmosphere for your event. This group can play all of your favourite jazz artists including Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Billy Holiday. Tantalising melodies and sophisticated ambient music are all part of this cocktail jazz ensemble.

So, where has Jen been all your life?
