Lady be Good


About Us

Lady be Good is an ensemble with a difference. Fronted by the Giocoso Saxophone Quartet, this all female 8 piece line-up of vocals, 4 saxes, piano, bass and drums can provide the sounds of the big bands through to pop classics for dancing.

Our repertoire covers 100 years of music, from Fats Waller and Gershwin through to Adele and Caro Emerald. If you prefer the rat pack sound, we are happy to invite one of our favourite male vocalists as guest singer.

It’s your special day. You want the perfect music to suit you and all your loved ones – from the romantic first dance, to the nephews skidding on the floor and your favourite great aunt. We understand this can be a challenge, so we offer a range of music styles including jazz standards, swing classics, pop, 40s and more. Just let us know what works for you.


Lady Be Good are committed to various good causes, and we’re always happy to discuss your ideas. Past events have included black tie dinners, through to a sponsored walk (in pouring rain) playing to the masses, with instruments protected by bin bags. We can perform for a heavily reduced fee depending on availability – see our FAQs page for more details.


See us in concert, or even better – book us for your own! Lady Be Good love performing in theatres and concert halls to sell-out audiences. With our own vocalist Kate O’Malley singing all your favourite jazz standards, we often invite a guest performer to add that extra dimension. One thing’s for sure – you’ll never see us perform the same show twice.

Tanworth-in-Arden Village Hall

Just a line to thank you and all the girls for the performance last Friday night - some said it was one of the best musical nights that they had seen at the village hall in recent years. The programme was just right for that audience.

Hagley Road Village

"...a really polished band. They performed a wide selection of seasonal and classic standards with Kate providing excellent vocals on several numbers. The audience were highly enthusiastic about what they heard (and saw!) and there's great demand to get them back. Recommended!"
