Choose your mood

Whether it is soothing the crowd or rockin’ the dance floor, Preville delivers. We have a broad selection of songs from past and present to choose from. At concerts we tend to play more jazz, TV and movie themes. At dances, we can play a mix of styles to get everyone on the floor.

Preville has a deep and varied play list, all with that rich live sound we are known for, to make your party a success.

Pick your favourite tunes

Give us a general idea of what you like from our playlist below. Then we will structure set lists that complement the normal flow of a party from beginning to happy ending!

These tunes are available as big band arrangements. If you want a specific tune that is not on this list, we can arrange and rehearse it for you, given enough time and a little money. Alternatively we might be able to "fake it" with a small combo.

We have updated this list, removing many older arrangements and adding newer up-to-date ones. Pick tunes from this list and you won't go wrong.
