Wedding Jazz Singer Pianist

Wedding Jazz Singer Pianist

Book as solo, duo, or trio

Introducing Jem Sassoon. He is one of the UK’s most in demand wedding jazz singer pianists. Either solo, duo or accompanied by his jazz trio, he’s been wowing audiences with his natural, soulful voice, dynamic piano playing and a repertoire of his arrangements of jazz, blues and soul classics. He comes fully contained as a solo wedding singer pianist, or can add his double bass player for a wedding jazz duo and his drummer for a swing trio. He can play multiple sets of music during your day, has a huge repertoire of songs and will take any number of your requests. He can play recorded playlists in the breaks between sets.

Jem can perfectly capture the Jazz, Swing era playing foot-tapping Sinatra or Bobby Darin classics; he will re-create the intimate atmosphere of a NY piano bar accompanied the sounds of Elton John, Billy Joel and Stevie Wonder, or even the blues and soul of Ray Charles or the lilting sounds of Bob Marley. Please check or download his complete playlist on this page

Choose this wedding jazz singer pianist option if you’re looking for chilled jazz, swing and soul music for your drinks reception and wedding breakfast. Given current Covid restrictions on wedding sizes, Jem’s trio is also perfect as an evening dancing band for a small wedding, as well as providing background music earlier in the day.

“Booking Jem as our wedding pianist was one of the best decisions we made!! His repertoire is fantastic, his voice amazing and he really got everyone in such a happy mood. At some points he even had all of our guests singing along during dinner. A real wedding highlight!!”

Emily Henderson (Wedding) 10/10

About your wedding breakfast music

Jem is also frequently booked to play solo at wedding ceremonies. The intimate, soulful character of his voice make him a popular choice with wedding couples for this part of the day. He plays instrumental piano music before the ceremony and you can pick the songs for bridal entry, signing of the register and exit. It is more cost effective to also book him for the drinks reception or wedding breakfast than the ceremony alone.

Jem is well known as one of the UK’s jazz and swing singer pianists. It’s for this reason he is regularly booked to play at top locations in London and the UK; The Shard, The Arts Club Mayfair, The Ned Hotel, Claridges and the Dorchester as well as iconic jazz venues such as Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club, The 606 Club, PizzaExpress Soho, The North Sea Jazz Festival and The Jazz Café.

In addition, he’s been picked to entertain by high end clients like the Americas Cup Sailing Regatta, the UEFA Champions League Final, Ralph Lauren, Hugo Boss, Manchester United, Visit Britain, NW Regional Tourism Awards, Selfridges, Kodak, KPMG and Shell UK.

“Jem was absolutely brilliant! His voice was soulful and he completely enthralled my guests that evening. He had an excellent song list and he also kept some of the audience requests. Jem was professional and I highly recommend him for any private functions or large events.”

Ain’t misbehavin’
Aint that a kick in the head
All of me 
All the way
Almost like being in love
A nightingale sang in Berkeley square
As time goes by
At last
Autumn leaves
Beyond the sea
Body and soul
Bye bye blackbird
Cheek to Cheek
Come fly with me
Cry me a river
Don’t get around much anymore
Everytime we say goodbye
Feeling good
Fly me to the moon
Foggy day
Georgia on my mind
Girl from Ipanema
God bless the child
Have you met Miss Jones
I can’t give you anything but love
I get a kick out of you
I left my heart in San Francisco
I only have eyes for you
Is you is or is you ain’t my baby
It don’t mean a thing
It had to be you
It’s alright with me
It’s only a paper moon
I’ve got you under my skin
I wish I knew how it would feel to be free (Film 2011)
Let’s call the whole thing off

Let’s do it, let’s fall in love
Let’s face the music and dance
Let’s fall in love
Let there be love
Love me or leave me
Lullaby of birdland
Mack the knife
Makin whoopee
Moon river

My baby just cares for me
My favourite things
My funny valentine
My romance
My way
Night and day
One note samba
On the sunny side of the street
Orange coloured sky
Our love is here to stay
Over the rainbow
Satin doll
Shadow of your smile
So danco samba
Take the A train
The lady is a tramp
The look of love
The nearness of you
The way you look tonight
They can’t take that away from me
When I fall in love
You make me feel so young

If you don’t know me by now
If you leave me now
I gotta woman
I guess that’s why they call it the blues
I just called to say I love you
I love being here with you
I’m not in love
In the heat of the night
In the wee small hours of the morning
I saw her standing there
Isn’t she lovely
Is this love

We booked Jem for our wedding on the Isle of Skye. He was absolutely fantastic and created the perfect atmosphere we were looking for. His chosen set was spot on and kept all of the guests entertained throughout the evening. He is extremely professional to deal with and super talented. We can’t recommend him enough! “
