Where can I hire Jazz & Swing Function Bands?

Jazz & Swing Function Bands can be hired from a live music agency, such as Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment exclusively represents a host of the best Jazz & Swing Function Bands and on this website you'll find videos, photos, repertoire and links to band websites so you can find all the information you need to hire the perfect live music for you. When hiring Jazz & Swing Function Bands with Tailored Entertainment your booking will be secured by a booking contract between you and the act. Standard payment terms are a deposit to secure the booking (usually around 20% of the total fee) with the balance payable 7 days in advance of the event.

How much does it cost to hire Jazz & Swing Function Bands?

For professional Jazz & Swing Function Bands, a base-level starting price is around £1000. At this price, you’re ensuring that your Jazz & Swing band is made up of the UK’s very best professional musicians with the requisite skill set, equipment, and production to perform at any function venue in the country. Keep in mind that this is a starting price, and many of the best Jazz & Swing Function Bands are going to cost more than this.

How long do Jazz & Swing Function Bands play for?

Most Jazz & Swing Function Bands will perform 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets as standard. The Tailored Entertainment roster of live bands all provide a bespoke DJ service before and after live sets, so your whole evening of entertainment is covered.

How long do Jazz & Swing Function Bands take to set up and sound check?

Most Jazz & Swing Function Bands take up to 90 minutes to be fully set up and sound checked. Small line-ups may be a bit quicker whereas large showbands with a lot of production will take longer. Our expert team will ensure a viable plan is in place ahead of your event so you have nothing to worry about on the day.

Can Jazz & Swing Function Bands perform a set at my drinks reception?

Absolutely! Most Jazz & Swing Function Bands on the Tailored Entertainment roster offer afternoon drinks reception add-ons to their standard booking. You’ll find these listed under ‘optional extras’ on the band’s profile.
Alternatively, you could book one of our dedicated drinks reception entertainment options like a stunning soloist or string quartet.

Do Jazz & Swing Function Bands perform a special request or first dance?

Yes, all of our Jazz & Swing Function Bands are happy to perform a special request - which is often the first dance or song of the evening. We'll prompt you for this information well in advance of your event to give the act plenty of time to plan and rehearse the performance.

Do Jazz & Swing Function Bands provide all their own equipment?

Yes, all of our Jazz & Swing Function Bands come fully self-contained with premium audio and lighting equipment. Our Jazz & Swing Function Bands also provide a DJ service as standard so everything for your event is taken care of in just one booking.
