About Booking Jazz Bands
Whether you're looking for upbeat dancing music for your wedding or background accompaniment for a corporate cocktail party, a jazz band will create the perfect atmosphere. The price for a jazz band may vary depending on your location, the length of the event, the number of band members, travel costs, and overall performance experience. Jazz bands can range in size; some are as small as three while others are as large as 10 or 12. Typically, they can tailor the size of their band and instruments to any event, from intimate birthday parties to large festivals. High-quality musicians are worth their rates, so be sure to do your research! Contact local jazz bands to get more pricing information and compare quotes customized for your event.
First, decide what size band you need for your event. Keep in mind how much room you have in the venue, as well as what style of jazz you're looking for. If you only need light background music, a trio may work best, while a larger event (like a wedding reception) may need a full band. Next, search online for artists in your area. Most performing musicians have online profiles to highlight their style and repertoire. Check out their videos and audio clips, and look for a professional with experience in events like yours. If available, read through reviews and testimonials from their past clients. Feedback is one of the best ways to ensure you’ll book the best. Once you’ve found the right jazz band, contact to ask about their rates and availability. Discuss important details like event location, number of expected guests, length of performance, song requests, and any unique aspect of your event. The more info you give the professional, the easier it is for them to provide a customized quote. This is also a good time to ask about specifics like their setup requirements or any additional travel fees. When you and the artist have come to an agreement, put all the specifics in writing to avoid miscommunications. With GigSalad, booking a jazz band is easy!
