If you're in charge of planning your company's party, a promotional event, or something special to impress your clients, we can help you.

You want your event to be a success, for people to feel like they've had a brilliant time, or for everyone to get up and dance! 

Our speciality is in making the party happen. We'll talk to you to find out about what sort of guests you're expecting, what songs you want us to play, and how long the event is. We can be flexible too - changing the tempo or style to fit the mood of the event.

We do: Award Ceremonies, Balls and Functions, Shows and Exhibitions

Corporate Events

The Charleston Charlies are the perfect live band for theme nights; Roaring Twenties, The Crooning Thirties, Egyptology, Murder Mystery, Colonial, Orient Express, Gangsters and Molls and Prohibition.

Theme Nights

Award ceremonies

An award ceremony can be a really special event, and the right band can make a huge difference.

The Oscar Bernhardt Ensemble play swing and jazz from the Rat Pack era. Whether you want background music playing as people enter the hall, or a more lively set after the ceremony, we can oblige. We're flexible, so can adapt our style to your specific event.

The kind of award ceremonies that we've played at include:

Graduation ceremonies, Sporting events, Corporate award ceremonies, Charity events

Balls and functions

You're planning a function or a ball and you want it to be memorable  - the kind of event that people keep talking about for years to come.

The Oscar Bernhardt Ensemble can help you create this kind of function. The music we play has broad appeal, which is ideal for an event with a variety of people. 

If you're planning a low-key event, we can play at receptions or during dinner. We know people want to talk, so we'll keep the music at a lower volume, making sure we complement the atmosphere of your function.

And if you want people to get up and dance, we can help with that too! We'll get people onto your dance floor and make sure they have a great time.

The kind of balls and functions that we've played at include:

Graduation balls

Black tie events

Society dinners

VIP events


Corporate dinners
