FAQs about hiring Jazz Bands in Lancashire

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

What instruments are in a jazz band?

A jazz band typically comprises a piano, brass instruments like trumpets and trombones, and woodwinds such as saxophones and clarinets, providing melodic richness. The rhythm section includes drums, double bass or electric bass, and occasionally a guitar, offering dynamic beats and anchoring harmonies. These instruments collaborate to create the genre's distinctive sound. In larger jazz ensembles, vibraphones, flutes, and percussion instruments might be added for complexity. Jazz's flexibility allows various instrument combinations, but the core elements of brass, woodwinds, and rhythm instruments are fundamental, enabling the genre's improvisational and expressive qualities.

How long can a jazz band play for?

Jazz band sets are typically 45-50 minutes long, with a 10-15 minute break between sets; a whole performance is often 2 hours long. The brief interval between sets allows them to gather their breath, re-tune and ultimately keep the music going for longer.

What do jazz musicians wear?

Traditional jazz bands typically dress to match the style of the music, with ladies wearing cocktail dresses or gowns and men wearing fine suits/tuxes.

What equipment do I need to provide?

The band will require a sufficient number of electrical connectors to connect all of the amplification equipment: three or four sockets should suffice. They can also require chairs without arms. Most live jazz bands will bring their own amplification, but if your location is often used for live music, they may be permitted to use the venue's existing PA system.

How much space does a jazz band need?

Jazz bands come in a variety of sizes, therefore the amount of space required will depend on the number of musicians performing. A general rule of thumb: - 1.5m x 1.5m x 1.5m for each musician - 2m × 2m for the drummer/pianist - 3m x 3m for a trio - 6m x 4m band for a 7-piece band More space is usually better than less, so talk to your venue about your space needs; they should be able to help you make sure your band is well-provided for on this front. The band will also give you an accurate estimate of how much space they'll want, taking into account equipment (whether they're utilising a PA system or lights).

How long does setup and sound check take?

A quartet takes roughly an hour, while a 7+ piece band takes about 90 minutes. This will allow them to load in their gear, warm up, and sound-check.

Are jazz bands good for christmas parties?
