Cocktail Parties & Dinner Dances

We have performed at many cocktail parties and dinner-dances. Our ensembles play soft and romantic sounds for cocktails, light and lovely music during dinner, and rousing rhythms for dancing including Vintage Swing and Dixieland Jazz.

Whether your event has a theme or not, our repertoire of stylish and popular songs focussed on the Great American Songbook and international favorites, will set the tone for musical enjoyment and lively social interaction amongst your guests. Please visit our Audio Samples page.

If your event is a vintage theme party, you can do no better than the Royal Society Jazz Orchestra and our smaller ensembles. Please visit our Theme Party page.

We've performed for events of all sizes: from intimate candlelit soirees to the biggest happenings in town.

Ensemble sizes:
Royal Society Jazz Orchestra 11-piece
Don Neely's Jazztet 4 to 7-piece
Don Neely's Trio & Quartet
Carla Normand's Penthouse Rhythm 4 to 7-piece

From romantic background music to hot jazz and swing, all of our ensembles provide the highest calibre music in the most fun and engaging style.
