Request your favourite tune...

…and our house bands will put a version together and play it just for you (OK, plus anyone else who’s there on the day!)

But seriously, to keep our musicians on their toes, they’ve all agreed to add yet another dimension to the jazz offering at Stray’s. Now this is no mean feat – as we won’t know what you’re going to ask us to play and if, in fact it can be translated into some sort of jazz arrangement. But knowing the guys and gals who make up the musical collective at Stray’s, we’re pretty sure they’ll deliver!

All you need to do is fill out the form on this page, submit it and then of course, turn up on the day to the gig you’ve made the song request for.

A couple of things to note:

If the song you’ve requested relies on a vocalist, please make sure you’ve selected a gig where a vocalist will be singing!

If you’ve asked for something obscure, please tell us as much as possible about the artist/film etc where you know the tune from. On the unlikely off-chance that we can’t find music for the song you’ve requested, we’ll let you know so that you can think of another.

And finally, please make every effort to attend the gig where you’ve requested your song – we’ll dedicate the song to you in person at the gig, so bring your camera/video!

Oh, and we nearly forgot to tell you – please let us know if your request is for a special occasion, like a birthday, anniversary or just a show of affection for the one you love…
