Full Description
Born in San Sebastian, Spain. Introduced to jazz at an early age by her father, she fell in love with the sounds of Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holliday. Although she studied classical piano for many years, it was the spontaneity of jazz that kept drawing her. After living abroad for a few years and marrying into a musical family, she moved to London and rediscovered her passion for the genre. Her repertoire covers standards from the Great American Songbook, beautiful ballads and cheeky 1950s numbers, as well as latin bossa nova grooves, where she can draw inspiration from her Spanish roots. Performing with some of the best musicians in town, Noa is a regular on the London jazz scene, having performed in jazz clubs such as The Ronnie Scotts Bar, The Spice of Life, The Vortex, The Bull's Head, The Pheasantry, The Charlie Wrights, The Ram Jam Club etc. as well as at various jazz festivals, private clubs (The Savile Club-Mayfair, Eight Member's Club...) and iconic venues such as The Victoria and Albert Museum. Noa can tailor a band to your requirements, this can be anything from a piano and vocal duo to a full swinging band, creating the atmosphere you are after.

I will definitely book Noa again
“What a night! I booked Noa as a surprise for my partner’s birthday. The organisation was easy, the event was amazing and everything was seamless. Noa is an incredibly talented singer and the backing musicians that joined Noa were amazing and all joined in the spirit of the party. I will definitely book Noa again and would recommend her without reservation" -Mark Eaton

Not will bring joy to any event
"At our wedding Noa sung my special request of “Ne me quitte pas” the Jaques Brel classic , which she performed in French ( even though she is Spanish and is not fluent in French….). It was amazing and bought a tear to my eye. Noa is a verstile singer with a great upbeat personality who will bring joy to any event in any surrounding" - Sarah Brinklow

What is your most memorable wedding?

What a wonderful world

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Ahhh...this is too difficult! One of the fabulous Big Bands from the golden era of jazz, Duke Ellington, Count Basie...all those fabulous musicians, those fabulous costumes!

What about your business are you most proud of?

After a couple gets in touch, I offer a free quote and if both parties are in agreement then we go from there. I email a contract so that the client knows exactly what the band will provide and has security that all will go ahead as agreed. I often meet in person with the clients to discuss any particular wishes, repertoire, logistics (timings, location etc.) Some couples have a clear idea of what they would like and some are after suggestions This is at no extra cost provided that it is local to me. I then keep in touch with whoever is in charge of booking the band (the groom, bride, best man etc) ahead of the day to ensure everything runs smoothly and any queries from their side are answered promptly, or any changes they need made can be accommodated, schedules permitting. We arrive at the venue in good time on the day, to set up, and we then play wonderful music to happy guests!
