Brighton Big Band
Chris (trumpet, composer arranger) has been leading this successful group since the early 2000's and toured within UK and further afield to many high profile events abroad. The all professional band consists of 2 saxophones, 2 trumpets, (optional trombone,) and rhythm section; piano, guitar, double bass & drums. Not forgetting our gorgeous singer Sara who leads from the front. Also available is our male featured artist Matthew. The clever musical arrangements mean that the sound the band create is indistinguishable from a fuller 18 piece big band, without the hassle or expense. Many of the tunes we play are from the classic big band era - Glen Miller, Frank Sinatra, Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, together with more recent big band artists such as Michael Buble and Lady Gaga/ Tony Bennett. We also have a wide selection of soul and motown classics that many clients like to utilize for later on in the evening. For those on a budget we can cut numbers down further - further details on enquiry.

The Chris Coull Quintet come every year to play at our community hall. Always to a sell out crowd and what a knock out they are too! These guys are swinging from start to finish.
Fabulous jazz band that came to play at our summer fete and garden party - really livened up the whole afternoon with their music. What impressed us most was their flexibility in playing different parts of the afternoon and evening.
-Diana Moyes (U3A Havant)
"We hired the Brighton Big Band for our wedding. It was perfect - playing some quieter music over dinner and then ramping it up for the dancing later on. We even got to boogie to some old time hits - fantastic! Very versatile and professional at every step of the way" Shiona Nightingale, Hastings.
"We had Chris Coull's band play for our annual garden party, the atmosphere was lit up straight away! They all arrived in plenty of time and were dressed smartly and got everything together with minimal fuss. Also very accommodating when we needed some softer tunes later on." Diana Moyes, Havant, Portsmouth.
