Summer Samba


Think of the warm haze of a sunny summer afternoon with fizz in the air and a skip in your step, think Summer Samba bossa nova & swing jazz trio.

Evoking the classic sound of artists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Astrid Gilberto, this trio creates a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere at any party.

Ela, Matt and Tim are full time professional musicians, fully insured and bring all equipment needed for their performances. The trio also have battery powered equipment for any outdoor events.  Enquire or book us for your event.


Band Members

Ela Southgate

Ela grew up listening to jazz, with a professional jazz pianist father, she was always listening & tinkling away on the piano, but realised she had a voice for singing much later. Ela has a music degree & studied jazz in particular at Chichester college. She has been a full time musician for nearly a decade and really enjoys playing with the myriad of talented jazz musicians on the Brighton scene where she lives. She loves the music from the classic era of jazz and bossa nova and has a large ever expanding repertoire.

Matt Wall

Brighton based, Matt has been a professional jazz guitarist for the best part of two decades. He has accompanied many soloists and played as part of band line ups from trios to big bands. He has a passion for the jazz genre and is known for working out chord sequences from original recordings to get that lovely authentic sound. Matt’s own guitar style is very laid back and melodic, plus he plays 7 string guitar that has an extra bass string giving him a particularly full warm sound.
