The first thing to do when trying to book musicians for an event is to listen to some audio samples of the musicians (preferably playing live rather a studio recording). When you have some artists who sound good try and find some testimonials from previous clients and read their repertoire lists to make sure they are an appropriate choice for your event. For more help read "find musicians", an article from Last Minute Musicians, it features lots of helpful information and tips on how not to get caught out. Don't be fooled by a good biography, it is essential to hear and even see the band playing before you book them for your special day. Follow the links on this page for more help and advice and you will not go far wrong.

Q. What makes a good jazz trio?
That's a good question. We think that a good band should look the part. Classic suits and ties, no jeans or casual wear. We also feel that they should we top notch musicians, there's no getting away from it with this music, there are no easy songs. A jazz band is meant to set a certain ambience so the manner in which the musicians carry themselves such be professional and mature. No "rock and roll" behave from these chaps please.
