Jazz Musicians for Hire

Our professional jazz bands offer a vast repertoire of jazz music to choose from, having earnt their stripes at various esteemed jazz academies and conservatoires across the UK. From Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong to jazzed-up interpretations of contemporary hits, our instrumental jazz bands are sure to be a hit with guests of all ages.

Cocktail Jazz, Lounge Jazz and Acoustic Jazz Bands

We offer a varied roster of instrumental jazz and swing bands for hire, suitable for events of every scale. For low key events in smaller venues, we have solo jazz guitarists, jazz duos, jazz trios and jazz pianists - ideal for background music during canapés or the wedding breakfast.

At the other end of the spectrum, we have great big swing bands who perform jazz and swing from the 1920s and 30s, with a fanfare of brass, a rumble of drums and the excited accompaniment of backing dancers. It's up to you! And what's more – our flexible and accommodating instrumental jazz bands can jumble up their line-ups to better meet your venue and budget requirements. So let us know if you'd prefer for them to gain or lose a member here or there, or if you'd prefer a jazz cocktail, lounge or acoustic set.

Our instrumental jazz bands, with their impeccable timing, supreme musicianship and impressive tightness will be instrumental in making your event an unqualified success. Instrumental jazz can be celebratory, attention-grabbing, or even soft and lilting, so depending on whether you're planning a surprise birthday, corporate event, charity event, bar mitzvah, bat mitzvah, office party, work Christmas do, awards ceremony, graduation, wedding reception, garden party, drinks reception, private dinner function, store opening, VIP party, summer fete or gala, you'll want to decide whether our instrumental jazz band will be twiddling away in the background or standing in the spotlight centre stage.

Bands For Hire Reviews

What a pleasure to work with! We hired Ain't That Jazz to perform at our wedding, and they were perfect. I really felt like we'd found absolute professionals, as well as great musicians. I'd like to extend particular thanks to Adam at Bands For Hire, too, as he provided us with an absolutely first class service during the sometimes difficult process of meeting the requirements of our venue.
