The SM Trio

About The SM Trio

The SM Trio are here to get your party started with a swing!

The SM Trio are a self contained act – great for a modest budget, an intimate party or a drinks reception.

The SM Trio are a 3 piece band performing an exuberant and, at times, irreverent celebration of the music and spirit of the greatest jazz singers of the 20th century – including the great Sinatra, The Rat Pack, and their contemporaries plus many more!

The SM Trio also have repertoire which is perfect for a Gatsby party or roaring 1920’s or 1930’s themed party.

The SM Trio line up is:- vocals/trumpet/guitar or banjo, double bass and piano – for your dancing, listening and party fun.

We’re available to hire for your drinks reception, party, wedding or corporate event. We’re professional and flexible, based in Manchester and available nationwide.

Playing music from an era of swing, latin ,blues and jump jive; songs penned by the likes of Cole Porter, George Gershwin, and Irving Berlin: songs made famous by Sinatra and the Rat Pack. Recently, we’ve seen people like Jamie Cullum, Michael Buble, Harry Connick Jr. and Robbie Williams cover these classics.

Our music is song-based and accessible, appealing to a wide range of tastes and people of all ages.

We have a large repertoire of songs and styles which means we can keep your guests well entertained.  Each performance is tailored to your event, your guests and of course, your personal preferences.

From £780.00

The SM Trio Testimonials

Just wanted to say a huge thank you for last night. You were fantastic and everything we had wanted!

The bride and groom loved it!

Becky Green, Wedding Media City Salford 24/09/16

Thank you for making our wedding day exceptionally special. Your song selection, style and dress complemented our winter country wedding perfectly and it was a pleasure to have you there for our day. From learning our first dance song “Let’s Fall in Love” by Ella Fitzgerald to bringing the rest of the wedding party onto the dance floor straight after, we couldn’t have asked for more. We would be delighted to recommend you to our friends and family.

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for entertaining us at the event yesterday. Everyone had a fantastic time, we had so many positive comments about the band. You definitely created a fun and exciting afternoon and I’m sure everyone left with a spring in their step.
Thanks you once again, I’ll definitely recommend The SM Trio for future events.

Thank-you for performing at Piccadilly Place, you all sounded great, you looked great and brought a real zing to everyone’s day. Thank-you!

Events Manager, Carillion

The SM Trio were amazing, they had people up and dancing during a cocktail hour, to music most of the audience didn't know! They made the evening, and everyone was talking about them. 10 out of 10, would definitely book again.

Kate Butler, 7th Sept 2016, Darley Abbey Mills , Derbyshire.

Thanks again for such a fantastic performance last week.  We’ve have lots of lovely feedback and requests for a return booking!
