What kind of events are jazz bands appropriate for?

Jazz bands can be a memorable addition to any special event where you want people up, moving, and having a good time. Here are some occasions where you might consider hiring a jazz band.
  • Corporate events like launch parties and holiday parties
  • Wedding ceremonies, wedding receptions, engagement parties, and cocktail hours
  • Private parties like birthdays and retirement parties
Jazz bands typically offer a range of music like jazz standards, classic jazz, bossa nova, and pop contemporary jazz.

How many musicians are usually in a jazz band?

Jazz groups range in size from jazz duos and jazz trios to large jazz ensembles. Big bands might have saxophone players, vocalists, guitarists, jazz pianists, and more. The larger the band, the higher the cost since you’re paying for each band member.

What kind of venue do you need to host a jazz band?

Your venue needs will depend on the size of your jazz band. A sax soloist requires little space compared to a six-person manouche jazz. If you’ve already booked your venue, consider how much space your band will need. If you’re booking your band first, keep performance and dance floor space in mind when looking for your venue.

How much does it cost to book a jazz band in Los Angeles?

Los Angeles jazz band rates vary depending on the type and length of the event, the number of band members you hire, and the amount of experience the band has. A newer performer or a solo saxophonist will be less expensive than an experienced quintet.
