JAZZ BANDS FOR HIRE
The long and beautiful history of jazz allowed the genre to be the versatile type of entertainment it is today. Jazz is perfect for big celebrations needing upbeat, danceable music, or intimate gatherings that need something romantic or soulful to set the vibe. We recommend a 3-piece jazz band with a singer for small to medium-sized venues, and a 5-piece ensemble for events in bigger and open spaces.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT HIRING JAZZ BANDS
What is the difference between a jazz band and a swing band?
It all boils down to speciality. Since its inception, jazz has evolved into many forms and styles. Swing is a specific style of jazz — it is upbeat, danceable, and “swingable” thus the name. More often than not, a swing band will have one or a few vocalists. Swing-style jazz came into popularity in the 1930s and continue to endure today. That said, a solid jazz band with good foundations or training should be able to play swing music without a problem.
CWP’s jazz bands are well-trained in the art of jazz music. From ragtime to swing to jazz fusion, we got you covered.
Is a jazz band right for my event?
Jazz is a pretty versatile genre and different people associate the jazz music they know with different contexts and events. For example, a lot of people think of jazz as swing jazz which is casual, cheery, danceable, and perfect for wedding receptions where there will be dancing later in the night.
But, jazz can also be mellow, sophisticated, and great background music to formal dinners and even soirees.
If you are unsure about that type of jazz music or jazz band that’s right for your event, don’t worry, we can help you figure that out!
Does your jazz band come with a vocalist?
You can choose to hire a vocalist or a vocal quartet with your jazz band or just get the jazz band on its own. After finalizing your song lineup, the band and the vocalist will rehearse the set together before your event!
How much does it cost to hire a jazz band?
The cost of hiring a jazz band is influenced by several factors including the number of jazz musicians you want in the band, location, date, and transportation required. That’s why it is difficult for us to name a price before knowing the details of your event.
