The Big Band
This is the fundamental style of LIGHT’s performance. 15~18 players play different instruments to present you a strong Jazz sound. It is also a kind of Dance Band which has long been loved by many since the days of LIGHT’s establishment.
Many tunes are available in this style, from traditional Swing Jazz music composed by great musicians such as Glen Millar, Duke Ellington and Count Basie to Latin music such as “bossa nova” and also recently written Contemporary Jazz music.
We are also capable of playing other kinds of music such as the Pop or Fanfares if requested.
We could also share stages with other vocalist or musical players with rehearsals arranged beforehand.
The Combo Style
This style is played by 4~6 players. You can enjoy a relaxed jazz sound with the least space taken for the band setting. It is recommended for BGMs of occasions such as dining parties.
