Sophisticated and professional, 'SMOOTH DUO' are experienced and polished performers. Susie & Andy are a class lounge act. Susie has a rich, soothing contralto voice, which is very rare these days and combined with Andy's skill & versatility on a variety of instruments including Alto Saxophone, Jazz Drum kit, Bongos, Latin Percussion, Keyboards/Piano/ Vibes/ Jazz Organ and Blues Harmonica they bring you a selection of musical memories from the Great American Songbook and the cocktail jazz club era.
Though they are not a Tribute Act, Susie's voice is reminiscent of Cleo Laine, Sarah Vaughan, Marion Montgomery, June Christy, Peggy Lee and Ella Fitzgerald. And although Andy plays Alto Sax, not Tenor, his style will remind you of the great Ben Webster. Together, their music will bring back memories of Cleo Laine & Johnny Dankworth, Ronnie Scott's Club and Lounges from the 40s and 50s when songs had melodies and meaning.
‘SMOOTH DUO’ specialise in cool background music with a hint of jazz, blues and swing over dinner.
They usually play two or three sets of easy listening music but they can tailor the length of set to suit your event. They can also play background music during their breaks.
