For live music with class, sophistication and nostalgia, booking a Big Band might be exactly what your event needs. Big Bands play jazz and swing music and became popular during the Swing and Big Band Era from the 1930s until the late 1940s. A big band is typically made up of a brass section (saxophones, clarinets, trumpets, trombones) and a rhythm section (piano, bass, guitar, and drums) and a vocalist. Sometimes a crooner such as a Frank Sinatra impersonator or Dean Martin tribute artist is hired to sing lead against a big band backdrop.
Big Bands are also often referred to as jazz bands, jazz ensembles, stage bands, jazz orchestras, and dance bands and are typically hired to play at events such as weddings, supper clubs, dances, concerts, festivals, conventions, new year's celebrations, gala affairs, parties and corporate events. Start your search for the perfect big band by selecting a city above.
Some things to consider when hiring a Big 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 big 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. Search for Big Bands in Boston, Massachusetts above.
