Need advice on hiring a jazz & swing band? Read our guide below and please get in touch if there are any questions you have.

What type of events would be suitable for hiring a jazz & swing band?

Our jazz & swing bands are suitable for every celebration you can imagine! Our clients are usually looking to hire a band for  their wedding, party or corporate event.

Where are your jazz & swing bands based?

Our jazz & swing bands are based throughout the UK, many are concentrated in the major cities such as London, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and Leeds. We can suggest bands that are near to you to cut down on travelling costs if you wish. However, most of our bands travel throughout the country on a regular basis.

Are your jazz & swing bands experienced?

We only represent jazz & swing bands who can deliver amazing performances. We represent highly gifted musicians with extensive experience performing at events throughout the UK.

How much does it cost to hire a jazz & swing band?

The cost to hire one of our pop, soul & Motown bands can vary considerably but as a rough guide, the average price to hire a band is £1,400 – £2,000. This can increase if you are looking to hire larger, more experienced acts.

We always encourage clients to let us know a rough idea of their budget. This really helps us to focus on finding the right band for your event.

Do the bands come with their own equipment?

Our bands are fully self-contained with their own PA systems and often lighting. They usually have the capacity for average sized events (150-200 guests).

Please let us know if you are looking to hire a band for larger events. We have strong links with sound and lighting engineers to provide the equipment necessary.

How long do the jazz & swing bands play for?

Typically jazz & swing bands base their prices on 90 minutes – 2 hours of live music. Clients can split this into 2 x 45, 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute sets, according to their preference.

Can I choose every song the band plays on the night?

Each jazz & swing band has their own (often extensive) repertoire. It is not recommended to choose every song a band plays – there really is a knack to creating a band playlist that encourages audience participation.

However, input into what the bands play is encouraged. We ask you to highlight your favourite songs and let us know any particular songs they should avoid. They can then cater their performance to your individual music preferences.

What sets you apart from other music agencies?

We stay with you from the initial booking right through to the event. We communicate with the band on your behalf, liaise with the venue and provide documentation required as well as assisting you with an itinerary for the band. Our music agency is with you every step of the way.

I am unsure which jazz & swing band to choose. Can you help?

It is natural to feel overwhelmed looking for a band to hire, especially if you have never done this before. We can help.

Please get in touch with us and let us know just a few details such as event date, type of event, expected amount of guests, budget and we can go from there.
