What are the benefits of jazzband booking?
It’s indisputable that jazz has had one of the greatest influences in music in the history of mankind. Countless genres and styles have been informed by the genre. The significance of it can thus not be underestimated: Dixieland, hiphop, soul – they all have been inspired by jazz. When the genre originated from the African American communities of New Orleans in the course of the late 19th and early 20th century, no one would have though how impactful the genre would become. However, today it is easy to see why Jazz is so immensely popular: basically, it’s raw energy channeled into music form. Although it’s hard to define jazz – given that there are hundreds of different styles – the beauty of all jazz is its improvisational, swinging character. It’s heavily performance oriented, as well, making it one of the best kinds of live music your party can rock to. With the right band, your event will not only become a success, but it’s also going to be something to talk about a long time after.

What do I have to look for when I want to find a jazzband?
Jazzband does not equal jazzband – just like with any bands, there are huge differences in quality. A good jazz band knows how to swing and how to properly use the instruments involved. A great jazzband, however, does not only play the music – it feels the music. In order for jazz to work, the musicians have to become one with the sound and emanate the inherent energy of the music towards the audience. Given the performance character of the genre, it’s also imperative that the band members are excellent entertainers – you don’t want a group of musicians glued to their chairs. If they know what they’re doing, however, your event will be a great success.
