Jazz duo from Norwich in Norfolk

Manhattan Dusk is a jazz duo based in Norwich, Norfolk, providing sophisticated background music for weddings, restaurants and corporate events mainly around the Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex and Cambridge area.

Made up of husband and wife team Matt and Alex Emmerson, Manhattan Dusk will add a touch of class to your event.

If you are looking for a mix of beautiful piano and vocals to play your favourite song during the signing of the register or as you leave the ceremony as a married couple, then look no further. Manhattan Dusk is happy to learn up to 3 special requests just for you and will not charge a penny extra for this.

If you are looking for some live music to be playing after the ceremony whilst you and your guests enjoy a glass of champagne on the loan, then Manhattan Dusk do this very well. Their repertoire does include many slow jazz standards but the tempo can be easily picked up with more latin and bossa nova beats in songs such as Sway, Lullaby of Birdland or Summertime to complement a beautiful summer’s day. Not to mention Manhattan Dusk’s very own jazz and swing versions of more contemporary hits by artists such as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Rihanna, Cee Lo Green and Plan B.

If you are looking for a bigger party band for your evening reception, please have a look at Matt and Alex’s function band Beat Connection ( see www.beatconnectionband.com ). Beat Connection has been going for over 10 years and it is without a doubt one of the most successful and in demands live function bands in East Anglia at the moment. It is worth noting that special offers are in place for clients who book both Manhattan Dusk for the daytime and Beat Connection for the evening: not only do you get a £100 off each band, but you also get a free DJ thrown in to take care of things before the band starts, when they are on their break and until the end of the night.

Matt Emmerson is also a talented DJ, sound engineer and extremely in demand vocal coach. One of his unique packages is the “First Dance Surprise”, which consists in coaching a couple to sing their first dance, produce it and record it on CD. Your own version of your first dance will then be played on the night of your wedding, to the surprise and amazement of your friends and family, and at the end of the night for the perfect finishing touch.
