"This renowned quartet's performances never fail to soothe and excite. A Kings of Lounge set will first massage its audience with mellifluous exotica from around the world before releasing the beast within so bring your dancing shoes. " Salisbury Live
The Kings of Lounge perform their instrumental version of an old Donovan tune.
For a " background ambience " sound for functions,
garden-parties or dining (such as the Fisherton Mill's Jazz Brunch)we have
the Kings Of Lounge Trio ( the Quartet minus drums ) - listen to some Trio
"Au Demain" - French Jazz
"Cry Me A River" - Classic Jazz
" Quierro Saber" - Spanish style
"Sunny Goodge St." - English 60's
"Quizas Quizas Quizas" - Cuban classic
As well as the Trio the band can be further reduced to a Duo - see the Duo page
The Kings Of Lounge play a variety of styles from mellow jazz classics to modern rock - they can customise their musical stylings to suit any occasion. They can be very light background for genteel garden parties or in your face loud and dancy for a more upbeat festivity. Ideal wedding band.

"You recently did Hannah and Owen's wedding at the Cathedral
School. What a wonderful set you did. Everyone just loved you. It was perfect."
I received the CD's today and just want to tell you they are "OUTSTANDING".
We are going to have hours and hours of enjoyment this summer listening to them on the patio.
I want to thank you again for all of your help and for the bonus CD.
