Recent review: We hired The Alchemists for our wedding party and they were phenomenal. They're incredibly talented and had everyone on their feet loving their lives from the first song. They were so good that people were even trying to dance during their sound checks! Their customer service was excellent from day one and the whole band are lovely, lovely people. We've had so many of our guests commenting on how amazing they were, not just in their performance, but also in their vintage, quirky music style. They were everything that we wanted for our special day and we couldn't recommend them enough. Thanks so much guys! Hannah & Jon

Jeremy Sassoon Jazz Band

Recent review: "Hi Paige - I've written one review for Jeremy but more than happy to write another in response to your email. Jem is quite simply a gem! He gave an absolutely fantastic performance - cool, subtle, punchy, emotive and he's clearly a brilliant professional artist. An extremely talented and charming guy both vocally and on the keys - and lovely with it. He put up with my timings on the night which altered by the minute and everyone remarked upon the high calibre of his singing and playing. I would recommend him for any occasion which requires someone who knows what they are about and has the skill, confidence and expertise to execute superb renditions and keyboard skills. For me he was playing at a private house party but I am certain he is equally at home in the larger arena. Jeremy Sassoon deserves every success - thank you."

Tips on choosing jazz bands in Manchester for your wedding or function event

If you're looking to hire a Jazz Band for your wedding, corporate or private celebration in Manchester, take a look at our extensive catalogue to find the best option for your event. You can filter Jazz 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:

Whether it is marriage, birthday, corporate event or other such events, there is no doubt that hiring the right Jazz bands is very important. They add lot of life and verve into the whole event and make it very memorable for the guests and also the hosts. However it is important to hire the right service provider taking into account various factors.

Keep In Mind The Occasion

One should bear in mind there are different types of jazz bands for different occasions and events. Hence it is important to go in for the right jazz bands for hire in Manchester keeping in mind the exact requirements. This should not be a difficult task if one decides to do some research on the internet. It should not take more than a few minutes to identify the right jazz team to suit specific requirements and situations.

Consider The Band Items And Equipments

Once the occasion has been firmed up, the next job is to look for jazz performers with the best collections of band and music items. Though this could vary from one band to another, there are some common equipment that should be available. These include trumpets, violin, accordion, piano, saxophone, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, flutes and other percussion items. Usually the band size is around twenty but there are some jazz bands for hire in Manchester which have smaller or larger troupes.

Check On Credentials And Reputation

It is important for customers to check on the reputation and credentials of these professional jazz band troupes. While some service providers might be ready to provide their list of customers for reference checks, in other cases it might require a bit of discretion. It might not be a bad idea to visit a live jazz band performance and then take a decision whether to hire them or not.

Start Early In The Day

When deciding on the right jazz bands for hire in Manchester it is very important to keep a few points in mind. Quality jazz bands are always in demand and they are booked well in advance. Hence it is very important that customers start the due diligence process well before time so that they are able to hire quality people before they are contracted by others.

At the end of the day, since these jazz bands are becoming integral part of many events, the onus lies on customers to hire the right talent after careful evaluation and consideration.
