Why hire a jazz band?

Jazzy but modern: Jazz bands don't always play oldies or slow tempo background music. For example, a modern jazz band for wedding receptions can perform jazz versions of pop songs. This is perfect for creating a lively atmosphere.

Wedding music: Every wedding is different. You may want your wedding jazz band only for the ceremony. Or, from ceremony through to drinks reception extending on to breakfast. Just let us know about the music styles you prefer. They will then provide a mix of jazz music to become the soundtrack of your special day.
The choice is completely yours. From smooth jazz to swing & jive. Or, postmodern pop crossover in jazz style.

Dinner / lounge music: Tasteful traditional jazz sounds make for great background music. Especially at restaurants, hotel lobbies and lounge bars. You can increase sophistication in the atmosphere with themed music too.

Romantic gestures: Thinking about a romantic marriage proposal? You can arrange for your jazz band to show up at the restaurant or park, when you are ready to propose. They can burst into a smooth jazz piece or your favourite love song in a jazz style. Providing the romantic soundtrack to this important moment.

Corporate impressions: Product launches, award nights, galas and more. Keeping your corporate attendees entertained can be difficult. Live jazz bands are a good choice for sophisticated entertainment. They help breaking the ice with the stylish and well-known sounds. Able to perform various music styles, they can appeal to everyone in attendance too.
