Frequently asked questions

What's the difference between a trad/vintage jazz band, a swing band, a post-modern jukebox band, and a gypsy jazz band?

Jazz bands come in all shapes and sizes - that's what's so great about them! They'll usually specialise in a specific style, like the following: Trad/vintage jazz band: perform Dixieland and ragtime jazz music from the early 20th century. Swing band: perform a style of jazz music developed in the 1930s & 1940s in the USA. Post-modern jukebox band: a style of music incorporating modern songs, or songs from different genres, into an upbeat jazz style (along with jazz instruments) Gypsy jazz band: a style of jazz developed by virtuoso Romani guitarist, Django Reinhardt, in the 1930's. Also known as 'jazz manouche'

What kind of performance should I expect from a jazz band?

Jazz bands come in all shapes and sizes - so depending on that context, they can either perform background music or play a headline performance. For most jazz bands, a background performance is the natural choice. Jazz musicians are masters of keeping the music lively, while not being so loud as to take over conversation. However, with the rise of post-modern jukebox, jazz bands are becoming more adept at headline performances. These are designed to get guests up on their feet and dancing during the evening party at a wedding or function. So, if you're after a band who mix the roaring 20s with the swinging 60s with the naughty 90s, this'll be your go-to!

What songs will a jazz band perform?

Professional jazz bands usually have extensive song lists - that said, make sure you let them know if you have any special requests! The jazz bands we asked said the following 5 tunes are their most popular: At Last - Etta James My Baby Just Cares For Me - Nina Simone It Don’t Mean A Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing - Duke Ellington Fly Me to the Moon - Frank Sinatra Take Five - Dave Brubeck
