Hire a Jazz Band in Cardiff

The quotes we give for each band cover use of the bands PA and lighting rig in addition to their travel costs. We have an enormous array of Cardiff jazz bands that are raring to play for you - everything from solo jazz pianists, solo jazz guitarists and acoustic duos to jazz trios, jazz quartets and 1920s-30s-style swing bands with as many as 10 members. The entire Bands for Hire team maintain a flexible and accommodating approach to everything we do - so if your event is to be a fairly low-key affair, let us know if an acoustic or cocktail set would better suit your venue and budget requirements, as a number of our Cardiff jazz bands are happy to change their line ups.

Jazz is notorious for having endless sub-genres and spinoffs, so you'll need to take your pick from all the cool jazz, modern and electronic bebop, gypsy jazz, trad jazz, jazz funk, hard bebop and contemporary jazz bands in Cardiff we have on display! Those of your guests that are less familiar with jazz are sure to be reassured and amused by our Cardiff jazz bands' imaginative cover versions of (to name but a few) Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Duffy, Oasis and Beatles hits - they won't have heard their favourite tunes like this before!

Extraordinary talent and exceptional showmanship is the name of the game when you hire one of our jazz and swing bands in Cardiff with a jazz singer at the forefront.

A Cardiff jazz band may just be the final piece of your surprise birthday, corporate event, charity ball, summer gala, fete, wedding reception, garden party, awards ceremony or anniversary puzzle. Some jaw-dropping music and a roomful of smiles paints a pretty picture!
