Sam Taylor Jazz Duo

Aucklands most sophisticated Jazz Duo. Ideal for Night clubs, private functions, corporate events, concert halls or Weddings. The Duo Features Sam Taylor on Guitar and Richard Pickard on Double Bass.


We hired the Sam Taylor duo for a client function and were thrilled with the experience. They read the crowd really well and the music delighted our guests. They were easy to do business with, adaptable (our venue was smaller than we intended) and the music was simply superb, very talented young men.
