How it began

The group was formed in 2003 by tenor sax player Nick Gould, comprising accomplished musicians playing a range of jazz music in and around Edinburgh and Glasgow – for the sheer love of it!  Since then we have been privileged and excited to perform at events and functions all over Scotland and in Ireland.

Who we are

Our talented and experienced line up of Saxophone, Bass, Keyboards and Drums has an extremely wide repertoire including all types of jazz and other well known music.   We all play music with a number of different groups and styles.  While we love to play music, the members of the band have also all been professional business people and our ethos is to play music of the highest quality and to work with our clients to ensure the success of any event we are involved in.

The Band Members are;   Nick Gould (Tenor Sax)     Kevin Dorrian (Drums)     Steve Grossart (Keyboards)     Iain Harkness (Bass)

What we do

We are available for hire and we have experience of performing at a wide range of functions such as corporate events, private functions, dinner dances, balls, weddings, music festivals and venue promotions and openings. The style of music that JazzMain perform includes most jazz, swing, latin & funk genres from the 1950’s onwards, as well as other blues, soul and more popular styles, which makes us very versatile. Check out a sample song list of the tunes we like to play.  We perform regularly in venues around central Scotland, mainly Edinburgh and Glasgow.  If you would like to come and hear us, then check out public events in our  upcoming events calendar.

Hiring a band for your function or event

Our band aims to provide you with enjoyable and appropriate musical entertainment, tailored to suit your own function or event. A superbly competent set of musicians allows the band to adjust musical tempo and style dynamically as required.  If appropriate Nick will use his unique brand of humour to engage the audience.

If you are looking to hire a band then, as well as the sound and style of the music, there are other factors which are important to consider.
