Why hire a live jazz band?
Clients book us for many reasons, but generally it's because they want to add something special to their events. Whether it's tasteful background music for a drinks reception or dinner, or perhaps something livelier later on, live jazz is the perfect way to boost the atmosphere and mood of your event.
Nottingham Jazz are perfect for helping weddings,
balls and parties go with a swing. We are friendly, reliable and
professional, and most importantly we sound great. For customer feedback
please see our Reviews page.
Nottingham Jazz's Ensembles
We offer a variety of ensembles to suit your venue, space requirements and budget. These are outlined below:
Duo - This is the smallest group we provide, and is ideal for small dinners, drinks receptions and parties with roughly 50 or fewer guests. Normally comprising piano and double bass, our duo is a great way to offer live jazz at a very reasonable price. It is also a good choice if space is limited. Other duo combinations include piano and saxophone, or saxophone and double bass.
Trio - The Nottingham Jazz trio is our most popular line up, consisting of piano, double bass and drums. This combination is extremely versatile, working well for dinners and events ranging from small to large. The trio is an ideal choice for clients who want music that carries further than the duo, but at less expense than the quartet. From time to time we provide variations on the piano trio, including sax, guitar and double bass; or piano, bass and vocals.
Quartet - The quartet is the perfect choice for clients seeking an impressive ensemble with a lively and well-rounded sound. The typical line up is saxophone, piano, double bass and drums. This combination is perfect for large gatherings or corporate events. The quartet can also include vocals (male or female) or trumpet.
Larger Ensembles - Larger groups such as quintet (5-piece), sextet (6-piece) and septet (7-piece) are available on request.
