The Beat-Route Core Quartet is an acoustic swing jazz band, our sound is best suited to sophisticated cocktail type events where a refined and seductive musical backdrop is required which still allows for conversation and networking without strain. We do often perform entirely without our PA system but for bigger events just give our unique and nuanced sound a subtle boost.

For Bigger Events we have our Show band line up which features one or 2 new absolutely World Class vocalists and an additional Monster Sax Guru. With a lively stage presence and some jumpin, cookin, swingin and Jivin original arrangements of some of the best loved classics to grab your audience and have their foots a tapping!

We can also extend the lineup further incorporating other additional instrumentation extending right up to a 12 piece mini Big Band replete with 5 horns, 2 vocals, percussion, Guitar, Drums, Upright Bass and Piano; ideal for bigger events that want that Big Band Swing era throwback style and pizazz.


With more than 200 corporate Events and well over 400 Weddings and Parties to our credit this experienced swing ensemble has developed into a thriving community of Jazz musicians capable of supplying the perfect musical note from Solo, Duo, Trios and upwards for your next Event, Party or function. Let us take care of everything including stage sound and lighting for your Event.

Music sets the mood transforming any scene into an extravagant and joyful event. Let us take care of the atmosphere from the ceremony to the first dance and sometimes beyond with our extensive and versatile repertoire of jazz and popular standards and flawlessly professional presentation. We also offer a Package including a more powerful PA System for Bigger Weddings and some lighting options.

We are always adding new songs and welcome any requests you may have - within the style of the band of course (we cannot play deep house, Country, Pop, etc..think Swing Jazz thats our Niche). Most tunes are standards but a few are original compositions of Mr Gerald Sloan.
