ACE are a classy jazz trio from Cambridge (guitar, bass and vocals). Band members, Alex, Claudette and Ennio inspired the band name, which was first formed in Spring 2017.
We play covers of popular jazz tunes through the ages in our signature, pared back and seriously mellow style. With our characteristic smoky sounds made up of double bass, jazz guitar riffs and silky-smooth vocals, ACE can provide the ideal soundtrack to your event. We'll give an air of sophistication to your wedding breakfast, champagne reception, garden party, grand opening or corporate event.
Claudette and her trio, with Alex and Ennio, have established themselves as firm favourites with us, both at The Black Bull Balsham and The Red Lion Hinxton. They are very adaptable, deftly tailoring their sets for the event in hand, whether it be a Friday night soiree in the bar, a New Year’s Eve function band or a summer’s garden party. They consistently receive a very warm reception and their return visits are always something to look forward to and are keenly awaited.
The mellow, rounded and rich tones from jazz vocalist Claudette Burch and the ACE jazz ensemble at the Black Bull in Balsham last Friday evening were unforgettable...Claudette’s expressive and heartfelt presence is the perfect accompaniment to Agabiti’s plucky bass notes, while Tsougranis offers smooth melodic lines that transport you to a different time and place.
