Tuxedo Quartet - Jazz Qurtet - English version
| We love our classic, old-world jazz, (with a bit of sass & glamour thrown in for fun) and because we live to see people dance, we like to play the cha cha, swing, waltz, quickstep, samba, rhumba, tango, and bossa nova. Our repertoire ranges from the Great American Standards (Porter, Gershwin, Sinatra….) to our Latin American Repertoire, and we like to include songs in Spanish, Portuguese, Italian & French. We are completely acoustic, without the use of any tapes or sequencer.
We love to travel, we love to entertain, and we can’t wait for our next big adventure. See you there
