About Booking Dixieland Bands
Dixieland music is a style of jazz that combines brass band marches, French music, ragtime music and blues with trumpet, trombone, and clarinet over piano, guitar, banjo, drums, and double bass or tuba.
Musical styles with important influence from Dixieland or Traditional Jazz include Swing music, R&B and Rock & Roll. The contemporary New Orleans Brass Band styles have combined traditional New Orleans brass band jazz with contemporary jazz and funk. Gig Salad has premier Dixieland bands, including jazz bands and swing bands, available for your private party, public event, corporate function or wedding ceremony.
Some things to consider when hiring a Dixieland Band are to make sure you listen to audio and watch video clips. This will ensure that you truly do book the best for your next event! Next, you want to get references. Talk to people in the area about the band and get feedback. Finally, get a contract. Many professional dixieland bands require a deposit to secure them at your next event. Make sure to read through the contract carefully before contracting the Dixie Land band for your party.
