Lou’s Sextet has played in and around Chesham, as well as further afield, for some seven years.
They began as a sextet, but with the addition of a second sax, and a vocalist they are now eight – but keep the name as they like it!
They play a variety of music - Swing, Mainstream Jazz, Latin, Blues, Jump Jive and numbers with a more funky vibe. Their great vocalist adds a touch of Sinatra, along with a variety of songs and styles.
They can give a mellow, swinging background for a reception, or an upbeat, lively performance for a pub, party or function, and can adapt to the mood of the event. Their experienced musicians and wide repertoire see to that.
Most recently, they played during the Christmas in Chesham festivities, in Gerry Martin’s Butchers, drawing a crowd of listeners and dancers in what was a really enjoyable evening for the town.
They play at parties, anniversaries, weddings, charity events, supper dances, pubs, street parties……as well as specialist jazz venues.
