About David Edwards
There are many Jazz singers in the Kent, Sussex, Surrey, London and Essex areas, but very few have made such a big impact on the southern entertainment scene as David Edwards. He wows his audiences with his wonderful renditions of songs from “The Rat Pack” and other great jazz standards.
Although David Edwards originally came from Norfolk – he now lives in East Grinstead, Sussex within striking distance of Kent, Surrey, London and the Home Counties. David’s work as a singer does, however, frequently take him further afield to Suffolk, Hampshire, Berkshire, Hertfordshire and many other UK counties.
What line-ups can he offer?
Most of David’s work has been with jazz pianist Eugene Portman and has mostly been as a duo. However, there seems to be a forever increasing demand for this genre of music and for David as a corporate entertainer. Due to this demand the duo line-up the line up now has to be frequently augmented to include “The Eugene Portman Trio”. This trio features Eugene Portman on piano, Mike Porter-Ward on bass and Roy Jackson on drums. Occasionaly the line up is augmented even further to include sax. So if you are looking for a jazz band then the larger line up may be what you are looking for.
Please note that David does not sing with backing tracks. He believes that ‘live music’ should be above all else live!
David’s music is above all is entertaining and his influences have been wide wide and varied. His main influences, however, have been Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennet, and Nat King Cole. A lot of the songs included on the repertoire list were recorded by these great jazz singers. David is not a tribute act, but sings songs in his own style and manages to put a new slant on them while keeping an easy jazz feel.
What type of event is David’s music suitable for?
