Popular Songs, Irresistable Swing.

Formed of professionals who take a great care in their work, Crystal Collective are not a standard covers band but deliver something a little more select and sophisticated.

They cross the border between background and foreground providing atmosphere and entertainment for a discerning audience.

Expect an electro swing arrangement on "Crazy in Love" next to an arrangement of Christina Aguilera's "Candy Man" with injections of Ray Charles, Elvis and The Baseballs!

The current line-up is:

  • Female Lead Singer
  • Male Lead Singer / Pianist
  • Female Backing Singer / Saxophonist
  • Male Backing Singer / Bassist
  • Drummer

The search for a band for our bar and restaurant was not easy... until we met Crystal 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.
