Full Description
  • The Jazz Agency is one of the few agencies in the UK to be run by professsional jazz musicians. We supply all kinds of live jazz bands for weddings, parties, corporate entertainment, cruise ships, hotel contracts and much more. There are many booking agents for live bands out there, but we’re one of the few where your first point of contact will be an actual jazz musician. This has many advantages – as your questions can be answered immediately. Since we’re musicians, if you ask; “How long will it take the band to move to a different location halfway through the day” – you’ll simply receive an answer, rather than ‘I’ll ask and get back to you’. Our jazz musicians are of the highest calibre, and regularly perform at many of the UK’s finest establishments, for example, Ronnie Scott’s, The Ivy, Buckingham Palace, The National Theatre, The Ritz and many more.The musicians all have thousands of hours of experience in the field at the highest level. Weddings are our main enterprise. We supply bands to lots of weddings every year, so we're well-versed on what to expect and will make sure everything runs smoothly in the music department.

FAQ
(10)
What is your most memorable wedding?
We've played quite a few celebrity weddings, but discretion is important to us so we won't name names. One of my favourite weddings was on Sark. We had to get all the gear into a little boat, and when we arrived we discovered there are no roads. We were transported to the hotel on the back of a tractor, surrounded by bales of hay.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Jazzy! Classy. Fun. Confident. Professional.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Building it from an idea into a working agency through constant attention to detail and optimisation.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
In terms of music, aim for an era. Then the other stuff falls into place.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
All of the ushers performing the entirety of The Message by Grandmaster Flash, accompanied by myself on the double bass.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
The couple will ask me if we have availability on a certain date. I'll send over examples for them to see and hear. We'll take it from there, with every step along the way clearly explained. I make it a point to answer questions promptly and clearly.

That's totally individual to each wedding! Always happy to make suggestions, however.

Fly Me to the Moon
