The Diamond Collective
London Based Modern Swing Band
Get In Touch
The Diamond Collective are a Jazz, swing and Pop quintet from London. They blend modern and traditional tunes with re-arrangements of popular songs. They perform with energy and flair and are perfect for weddings, parties and large corporate events. If you're after some Electro-swing Beyonce or retro re-mixed Rhianna along side some toe-tapping tunes from Elvis and Ray Charles then they are the band for you.
Background or Dancing Music
The band can offer two options. One, a more background style, perfect for a sophisticated cocktail evening or dinner, while the other, a dynamic and energetic performance, perfect for dancing the night away. The band pride themselves on reliability and professionalism. They are equally at ease playing at large corporate functions, as they are at hotels, clubs, parties and weddings. The Diamond Collective's experience, versatility and attention to detail are not to be missed!

You did such a great job of getting people on the dance floor from the beginning of your sets until the end.

The search for a band for our bar and restaurant was not easy...until we met Diamond Collective! Their repertoire is extensive, stylish and probably the best I have heard for a very long time.The modern touch given to their jazz music as well as the personality of each musician has transformed the atmosphere of our bar. They are very talented and will always bring something special to the place they play. - Clement Sargeni – Deputy General Manager, Hotel du Vin Tunbridge Wells
We first saw Diamond Collective at a charity gala at the Grange St Paul's and loved the way that they had the whole room on their feet that we HAD to have them at our wedding. As I had already had such a great experience in the run up to the wedding I knew that I didn't have to worry about them on the actual day and I was right. They gave the start of our evening reception a really funky edge but still managed to appeal to all of our guests (from 3 to 83!). By the end of their set all of our guests were on their feet dancing. This is exactly what we wanted… all of our friends and family having a great time! When we first started planning our wedding we did not intend to have a band. However now we couldn't imagine our day without Diamond Collective.
