Brian White Quartet, Savoy Friday Jazz Night  

I really did enjoy your playing last night - what a treat! I'm just a budding amateur who likes the trumpet but always seems to be trying 'this and that' in order to make progress. Your tone and technique were just superb and I loved the Miles numbers. You've got a really well integrated group, full of vitality and ideas and a sheer delight to listen to.

Brian White Quartet, Wedding reception....

We booked the Brian White quartet for our wedding in June and they were absolutely brilliant! All our guests commented on how great the band were and they played a great mix of music in the two sets, which really got the party going. They were happy to accommodate any special requests we had, including playing in a slightly unusual venue in our case. Dealing with Brian was a pleasure from start to finish and everything was handled very professionally. I highly recommend Brian and his band for any event.

For the launch of our new store we invited VIP and corporate customers to explore our offices. Brian set the tone with fantastic guitar & trumpet background music which really gave a wonderful feel to our event. We would recommend them definitely!

Bossa Duo, client drinks... 

It was a pleasure to have Brian and Tim play at our office open event. They set the mood just right and it helped the evening to be the huge success that it was. It was a really easy booking process and our minds were put at rest with their communication and they are very good value. I would strongly recommend the Duo and wouldn't hesitate to re-book for future events.

Thank you so very much for playing yesterday. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and it turned a sad occasion into the celebration that Della wanted. The music you played was fabulous. Everyone commented that the music was a magical touch and that Della would have loved every minute of it. So thank you and please send our thanks to the rest of your band.I found booking your band a very easy and straightforward process with prompt correspondence from you.

Bossa Duo,Christmas Party....

We used the Bossa Duo for a Christmas party - and we are so glad we did - never too loud and never too quiet - the music provided the perfect soundtrack to our "Merry Making" and certainly got us into the festive mood with their lovely, subtle tone. We were delighted with the result in what proved to be a fabulous event with classy and tasteful music. Thank you"

Jazz Festival, Jazz Quartet, Bossa trio.....

I recently hosted a Saga jazz holiday at the Merton Hotel, Jersey, at which The Brian White Quartet was engaged to play. This was a unique experience, being Saga's first jazz holiday on the island and also that we had not heard the band play before. What a wonderful evening we had, with the band playing a superb programme of smooth, sophisticated jazz to the audience's delight. The band was very professional in every way - with good time-keeping and performing to our specified requirements. I have no hesitation in recommending this band if you are looking for something special, modern, up to date and very entertaining.

Wedding Reception & Ceremony, Quaretet & Solo trumpet.........

You guys were simply AWESOME!
We were signing the register in church and remarking on how amazing your renditions of Some Day My Prince and Funny Valentine were and how your playing made the service extra special for us.
So many guests said to us how fabulous you were in the church and in the marquee, with which we could not agree more! We only wish you could had played throughout the meal, and that we could hear all of the pieces again. Thank you very very much!!

Wedding Reception, The orchard, Durrel, Bossa Duo.....

We had Bosa Nova, playing at our wedding pre-drinks. The music they were playing was just wonderful, it was lovely melodies. Enough softness that when guests were talking they would not have to shout, but also with enough volume that guests could sit and enjoy. It was great. Thank you guys.

Wedding Reception, Catel Fort, Jazz Quartet..... 

Brian and his band provided us with the most wonderful entertainment for our wedding this month. Right from the start Brian was easy to communicate and organise things with, they hardly required anything from us in order to come & play and where very flexible even when our plans changed at the last minute. We thoroughly enjoyed the music they played and would highly recommend them to anyone considering a band for a wedding. With our thanks.

Wedding ceremony & reception, Bossa Duo..... 

I cannot thank Brian White and his Bossa Nova Duo enough for providing such wonderful music for our wedding ceremony and our afternoon tea. From our initial enquiry Brian was incredibly helpful and prompt with replying to our emails and giving us straight forward answers to our queries. The week before our big day Brian met up with us and went through a final run through of what we wanted from him and was always on hand via phonecalls with any last minute queries. Bossa Nova were incredibly professional on the day, they were set up on time and caused no disturbances/distractions so neither myself or my best man had to worry about them. Their performances were fantastic and they played "Nobody Does It Better" (from the film The Spy Who Loved Me) as the tune my Bride walked down the aisle to. It brought a massive smile to our faces and the whole congregation loved it. They also played "The Best Is Yet To Come" and "L-O-V-E" and everyone commented on how great the tunes were and how they added to the atmosphere of the wedding venue (we got married up in the Great Hall at Mont Orgueil Castle. ).After the ceremony we had an afternoon tea at the castle, for which Bossa Nova Duo played a great selection of Jazz tunes. We could've asked for specific songs - Brian was very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble - and at the end of the tea Bossa Nova Duo were professional to the end... They packed up and went off without any fuss or distracting from the afternoon tea. I didn't even realise they had gone off. I was actually sad not to have said goodbye and what a brilliant job they did. Bossa Nova were great value for money and so helpful from start to finish. When it came to planning our wedding, Bossa Nova was one thing we didn't have to worry about. I look forward to booking them again in the future... And seeing what other film tunes I can throw their way!

Jazz @ La Mare - Liberation music festival, Jazz Quartet....

The Brian White Jazz Quartet were outstanding yet again in the Jazz at La Mare event at the Liberation International Music Festival in Jersey.  They performed fabulously and held their own when performing next to one of the most celebrated giants on the international circuit - Ray Gelato.  Best of all their performance is full of verve, wit and class.

Corporate event, Jazz Quartet........ 

Brian made my life so much easier in organising my event. He liased directly with the hotel to arrange the set up which saved me additional work and the music they provided fitted the event perfectly. The band arrived early and were happy to start playing earlier than planned which worked better on the night. I would definitely consider using them again.

Wedding, Jazz Quartet & solo trumpet in church

Brian played his trumpet at our church service and then his band played at the reception drinks. They are a lively fun band. The guests all enjoyed the music and I can't thank you enough for making our day so enjoyable. Highly recommended!

Can I say a big thank you to you and your quartet for the amazing music you provided both at the church and at St Brelades bay hotel (during the reception drinks). The service you provided was outstanding and made our wedding day complete.

Wedding, Jazz Quartet & Bossa Duo.. 

Brian White (trumpet) played with Tim Horsfall (guitar) and separately with Malcolm Whittel (organ) at our wedding service. Brian arranged rehearsals and on the day, the music was superb. It helped to add to the magic of the beautiful St Brelade's Parish Church.

Brian White's Jazz band also played for us in the evening. The sound of cool classy jazz music was an instant hit with the guests and really made the evening special.

I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Brian - a real professional.

Jazz Club, Jazz quartet..... 

The band have been quite a revelation to me. I would not say I was an out an out jazz fan, yet I find the music they play to be true enough to "classic" jazz to be recognisable, however they are brilliant enough to be able to develop the songs further and turn the night into a jam session, which is a truly fantastic experience and one which I find myself addicted to when I hear it!
