Recent review: Unfortunately our experience with The Alchemists was less than satisfactory, We got the general feeling that the band really didn't want to be there and did not take kindly to the fact that we requested more up beat music. The band also did not live up to their demos. In addition, a member of staff's car was damaged when Ryan used his own car to break through a chain in the car park instead of simply requesting the staff to remove it in order to remove the car. Will not be booking again.

Recent review: Thank you so much for helping to make my daughter's wedding reception such a memorable day. The 3 piece band, who performed a delightful selection of well known jazz pieces, sounded amazing, looked so smart and were talked about by so many of the guests. They struck exactly the right tone my daughter was hoping for at her wedding and we can't thank them enough. Mat, whom I dealt with from the first contact, was very professional and i would not hesitate to recommend this incredible band to anyone looking to add a 'touch of class' to their celebrations.

Tips on choosing a perfect swing band in Leeds

If you're looking to hire a Swing Band for your wedding, corporate or private celebration in Leeds, take a look at our extensive catalogue to find the best option for your event. You can filter Swing Bands by price and location, and compare reviews, images and videos to help you make the right choice. When choosing a Function Music Band it's important to consider:

Music played at the right volume creates a fun and exciting atmosphere for guests as they mingle with each other and network. The presence of a professional swing band makes your guests appreciate the fact that you took some time to find the ideal musical group. The entertainment provided by a live band is not comparable to hiring a DJ. This is one of the main reasons why most people resort to hiring swing bands in Leeds. Below are a few useful tips that guide you through the process of hiring the right band.

First and foremost, hire a highly reputable band to perform at your function. Many musicians nowadays find it rather easy to create a website just to make it appear as though they are professionals. However, the precise atmosphere you need a band to create can only be pulled off by a reputable band. A less experienced band is likely to disappoint you.

Remember, song selection is the key to having a perfect atmosphere. While planning a cocktail reception, a wedding, or corporate reception, choose a swing band that can create a fun and exciting environment for your guests. With this type of music, your guests can mingle and network while listening to soothing music playing in the background.

Listen to a jazz band perform before making a hire decision. This is an excellent way of assessing their level of skill. Furthermore, you can also determine whether their style suits your specific requirements. However, if it is not possible to watch the band perform live, you can request to be provided with a video recording.

Prior to hiring swing bands in Leeds, enquire whether your preferred band is comfortable playing your favourite jazz songs. Most bands will allow you to make a few song selections. These few tips will guide you through the process of hiring a suitable swing band.
