We hired this group for a corporate event of about 175 people. They arrived on time, kept to the schedule and do a very good show. People enjoyed their music very much, they are excellent musicians. Very professional, I recommend for any corporate event.
Artisan Jazz performed at my intimate wedding outdoors in the Hocking Hills. They were amazing!!! Their music really impressed us all.
We had a jazz trio (piano, saxophone, bass) perform at our wedding reception. Kevin was very responsive in coordinating before the event and accommodating our song requests. They did a great job playing, and helped create a warm atmosphere.
Our event was moved inside due to the rain......but you guys adapted perfectly and entertained our group just right! People were able to mix and mingle.....and enjoy your wonderful sounds.....and then dance if they chose! Light jazz trio. Perfect mix! drums, keyboard and bass. amazing!!!!
Highly recommend you for any event!
We booked Artisan Jazz Trio for our 5th Anniversary celebration at The Inn at Olentangy Trail assisted living and could not have been more impressed. Sometimes in a small community setting like this, the music can be overpowering, but not with this trio. The volume was perfect, song selection was right in line with our Great Gatsby theme, crowd interaction was wonderful and they even played a few extra songs when they realized the residents weren't ready for the end! They truly made our night one to remember and I'd be happy to recommend them for any event.

"Artisan Jazz did a fantastic job at my sister's wedding. From start to finish, Kevin of Artisan Jazz was very prompt and professional in every correspondence. My sister wanted a classy lunch-time reception with no dancing, yet entertaining for her guests. That is exactly what Artisan Jazz delivered. The volume was perfect for conversation, their song choice was perfect for the occasion, and their personalities were enjoyable to watch. The band even honored a last minute request for a very special dance. We received countless compliments on the band, and I would highly recommend them!" -- Danielle M, Medina, OH, 8/18/2012
Frequently Asked Questions:
*Do we need to have a piano?
If a piano is not available, we can provide a professional, authentic sounding, portable digital piano for your event.
*Does Artisan Jazz take requests?
Absolutely! If there is a song that you'd like to hear us play, we'll play it for you. We just require reasonable notice, so that we can learn the music if we don't already know it.(maximum of two songs,please)(please allow 3 weeks to learn each piece)
*How does the group dress?
We always wear suits and/or ties and look professional and polished. If you prefer for us to wear tuxedos for a black-tie event, or dress more casually, we're happy to do that as well.
*Can I just have solo piano for my wedding ceremony?
Yes, the pianist for Artisan Jazz , Kevin Gault , would be happy to perform solo piano music for your wedding ceremony.
You have the option to have solo piano for your cocktail hour/dinner or choose one of the Artisan Jazz ensembles.
We can offer you a very attractively priced package if you choose to book both the ceremony and cocktail hour/dinner/reception with us.
Where can we go to see Artisan Jazz perform?
Don't be afraid to book a music group without having seen them play live, provided you are happy with their demo, song list and experience. The top private event/wedding/corporate event musicians tend only to play at private events because they have enough private work never to need to play pub and club events. Realistically, the only time you would be able to view such a music group would be at someone else's event.
*How much time does the group need for set-up?
It usually takes the group one and a half hours to set up. We will be set up and ready to play at least 15 minutes before your first guest arrives. We will work seamlessly with all the other professionals who are working for you. You will never have to worry about conflicts.
*Does the group charge for set-up time?
*Do we need to provide any equipment?
No, Artisan Jazz will bring all the equipment we need. We just need a standard 3-prong electrical outlet within a reasonable distance of where we will be playing, and an area that is large enough for three men with instruments. Also, if your event is outside, cover from the sun/rain is required. If needed, Artisan Jazz can provide a shelter for a nominal fee.
*How loud is the group?
Artisan Jazz is not loud. Whether you choose to hire Artisan Jazz for the night's featured entertainment or for soft ambient music, we will work with you to make certain our volume level is perfect for your event. Since many events are a time for guests to socialize and mingle, we never play so loudly that conversation becomes difficult. If you want us to play more loudly or more quietly, just ask us, and we'll gladly accommodate your needs.
How much does Artisan Jazz charge?
Artisan Jazz has very reasonable rates. The group can offer you the most attractive rate if your venue has a piano on site. Please be certain to mention if a piano is available when you place your Gigmasters' gig request.
*Is Artisan Jazz available for "in-person" auditions/consultations?
Artisan Jazz does not normally meet with clients "in-person" before events.
They are, however, available by telephone and email for consultations, and for arranging special details. Phone calls and emails are usually answered within 24hrs. If clients prefer to meet, it can be arranged for a fee to cover their time and travel.
