WE SPECIALISE IN WEDDINGS, CORPORATE EVENTS AND FESTIVALS IN THE WEST COUNTRYThe Steve Tucker All Star Jazz Band are one of the top West Country Jazz Bands, and are guaranteed to get your party, wedding or event into full swing. With a wide range of jazz songs to suit all tastes and styles, listen or dance to the band; they're going to get your feet tapping with jives and spirituals, romantic ballads to blues and boogie. With over twenty weddings a year and many special party functions around Devon and the West Country the Steve Tucker All Star Jazz Band are very experienced and professional in their approach. The band are more than happy to discuss with the bride and groom or family in detail your special day, giving advice or making suggestions to make your wedding day or event memorable and very unique to you.
The Steve Tucker All Stars play a three hour set with breaks, keeping the atmosphere going with CD recorded music in the breaks. This could give you the opportunity to provide a selection of your favourite pre recorded songs on CD so we could play them on our professional sound system. The band can play three sets of 50 minutes, flexible to requirements. For a small extra charge we can run an hour disco for you to follow the band's performance. A question often asked is how much space the band will need. Although flexible again, a minimum of 20 by 15 feet is desirable. An independent, secure power supply will be needed close by at the venue. If the band are required to play outside a cover must be provided, i.e. marquee/tent or gazebo type, again with a safe power supply nearby.
It is a legal requirement that any band playing at a public performance holds a current public liability certificate of insurance. We feel our insurance, through the Musicians Union, is the best for your safety and peace of mind. The certificate is available to view, on request, when booking the band.
A full address of venue and postcode is required, and supplying the office with a very detailed map of venue location with parking and loading instructions would be very helpful.
A solid wooden floor, especially in marquees, is helpful for the sound quality as acoustic instruments are absorbed on a grass surface. Food and refreshments are always very welcome. If budgets are limited the band can break down in size from the full seven piece to a six or five piece, although it is recommended to have the full seven piece presentation.
We receive many letters of thanks from people and are always happy to be versatile and flexible - after all, this is probably the first time you have organised your special anniversary, function or wedding. Each event is different, with individual requirements.
"...Thank you Steve for all your help and advice, you have a fabulous band, you made our evening wedding reception magical and a day we will never forget!" (Rebecca and Max)
Your weddingSue Rawle, editor of North Devon Brides magazine writes,
"Getting the right form of entertainment is crucial if your wedding day is to go with a swing. A typical wedding party has a wide range of ages all together. The All Stars get this just right: young children love the tribal feel of the beat, and to see real musicians play their instruments. Teenagers and youngsters are now taking jazz into their collection with pop stars like Robbie Williams, Rod Stewart, Brian Ferry, Jamie Cullum, Nora Jones and Michael Buble giving jazz a new fan base. And of course the older generation remember the songs from their youth."

We had to drop you a line to say a massive thank you for entertaining us at our wedding you were a major contribution to the success of a fantastic evening. We were not sure a jazz band would work with all our young guests, how wrong were we you had us all dancing all night all age groups had a superb time. We cant think of a band that could do that, you are unique. Please pass on our thanks and regards to your troupe.

Just a quick note to thank you again for your help with my daughter's wedding, you certainly helped me plan the day and the recommendations you gave us really worked well. My husband and I had never arranged a wedding before and your tips and thoughts on the day plan were so spot on. Your band was fabulous it added class and sophistication and it was great to see all our friends on the dance floor having such a good time, I think the wine helped a little. Steve you were so helpful and please pass on our thanks to your band.

Many thanks to you all for the music at our wedding on Saturday you proved exactly what we were looking for, you catered for all our guests from the little ones to us oldies. The kids are still talking about your jungle book songs and our teenage relatives have started to buy jazz cds. Could you give us information on how to buy yours. You played such a vital role in making such a wonderful day, thank you again, we enclose some photographs.

Thank you for your exciting performance at our fundraising event. The afternoon was a great success for the village of Iddesleigh. We made a good amount of money for the church and more critically, it bought a lot of people together. Everyone loved it and that was important to Antoine and I and the committee. We hope to do it again next year hoping your free. I hope your summer goes well for you and the band.
With very best wishes
Venue Ash House, Iddesleigh.

Didn't want to the day go without letting you know what a great gig it was today - brightened our day and the crowd were having such fun! Line dancing to My Baby Just Cares for Me was such a great sight, jivers going for it, and people smiling and children dancing about. The organiser chappie walked back from the other side with us and as we came back to your gig I said to him about how brilliant your marketing was, the effort you make with badges for the children and the flags - he was most impressed so hope you get the return gig. You chose some swinging numbers which people knew and enjoyed and that is what is so different about your band, you engage with the audience and it makes them feel part of it all. You did Plymouth proud and also the jazz scene so keep it going and let's see you again next year! Great entertainment, and see you soon hopefully Lois and David
