About Booking Latin Jazz Bands
Latin jazz music is perfect for a lively wedding reception or party, a restaurant, a dinner occasion, corporate event, concert venue or club. A Latin jazz band differs from the traditional jazz band by using less swing and more straight rhythm for their sound and using percussion instruments such as the conga, timbale, güiro and claves. There are three types of Latin Jazz: Brazilian Latin Jazz, Cuban Jazz and Puerto Rican Jazz. Latin jazz music is played in small combos or in full Latin Jazz bands.
Some things to consider when hiring a Latin Jazz 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 Latin Jazz Bands require a deposit to secure them at your next event. Make sure to read through the contract carefully before contracting the band for your party.
