Sue and Chris Willis met whilst playing together in a British Army band of which he was Director of Music.
Chris sings, plays trumpet, tenor sax, and trombone; Sue plays all woodwinds from piccolo down to baritone sax. The sparkling array of eight instruments with vintage style music stands and costumes gives a memorable and classy presentation. Utmost attention is paid to playing at a volume appropriate to the event.
In addition to their foundation repertoire of Swing, Dixieland, and American Songbook, they embrace more recent works, which include The Beatles; Carpenters; Bacharach & David; Herb Alpert; as well as Latin-American and classic Christmas songs.
Chris and Sue create their own high-quality, well arranged backing tracks using live-recorded rhythm section. They provide a stylish vehicle for good-humoured, ‘bon-viveur’ entertainment.
