About Booking Trumpet Players
The trumpet is a prominent member of the brass family of instruments and is one of the most popular instruments in all of music. Trumpet players can be heard across nearly all genres of music, including classical, jazz, rock, pop, ska, polka, swing, blues and funk. Trumpet players are popular for wedding ceremonies as well as receptions. For more conventional weddings, trumpet players bring class and style to the ceremony. The sound of the solo trumpet blends very well with the organ or piano, and it resonates beautifully off the walls of any church or temple. A trumpeter, trumpeteer or tumpet player can help create the perfect ambiance at a formal private event.
There are a few things you should consider when hiring a trumpet player. First, be sure to listen to audio and watch video samples. You want to be sure you are satisfied with the sound and look of the performer before you book him/her. Next, get references and read reviews. Talk to people in the area who have seen the performer and/or have booked them in the past. Feedback is the best way to ensure you book the best. If you are looking for a trumpeteer for your band or ensemble, check to see if they can adapt to different kinds of music and if they play well with unfamiliar bands. Last, always get a contract. Read the contract carefully and work out any details in regards to deposit requirements, length of performance, scheduled breaks, attire, travel, and lodging. Watch for specifications made by the performer and be sure you can meet them.
