Our Bands

Here is a selection from our jazz band roster. Remember - the biggest factor in the price is the number of musicians in the band you choose.

If you’re feeling flush you can hire our largest outfit, an eight-piece swing band. This, however, will come at twice the price of a jazz quartet, perhaps a bit more if several cars are required for the band to get themselves to the venue. Our trios and quartets are our most popular jazz bands, because they’re cheaper and can generally fit into one car. Also they take up less room at the venue, and can set up and pack down unobtrusively.
