Cocktail Jazz Duo played for me at my birthday party, they were amazing, their choice of music, very professional, came to the venue on time, I would recommend them and have no hesitation in using them again, thank you to both of you.
Alexandra Howe
It's been a great party. The company doesn't put on many events like this so it's been great to have everyone together and the music has been superb. Thank you both very much!
Elizabeth Allen
Wow! What fantastic music! Thanks to you both for playing for my birthday party - the music has been wonderful.
Douglas & Charlotte Bott

What kind of music does a jazz duo play?

A jazz duo can play different types of jazz music depending on their own musical style and preferences. Jazz is a genre that emphasizes improvisation and personal interpretation of musicians, so each jazz duo can be unique in their approach to the music. Often, jazz duos have a wide variety of songs to choose from so they can meet the audience's preferences. They often play acoustically, with instruments such as piano, guitar, double bass or saxophone.

Does the music duo need technology?

This depends on the needs of the music duo and the type of event. Music duos often have their own equipment, but it is always good to inquire whether you need to make provisions for the duo.

What happens during bands breaks?

During the breaks, the band provides atmospheric music which they play over their sound system. The music is of course in line with the music played during the performance. Some bands come with a DJ, who will then provide the music. Of course you can also book a DJ for the breaks with all live bands.

How far in advance are bands ready?

The live band is ready to start 30 minutes prior to the performance. This means that everything has been built up and sound checked. It is also possible to agree that the live band will be ready to start earlier in advance. The band members will of course spend more time on the assignment, which is why they will charge a fee for this waiting time.

What is included in the price?

Everything required for a successful performance is beach standard included. So the price is all-inclusive and there are no additional costs. Included are:

  • Screened, professional entertainment
  • Money back guarantee
  • Travel expenses
  • VAT
  • Replacement entertainment in case of illness
  • Online wish list
  • Personal event manager
  • 24/7 customer service
  • Assembly and disassembly (if required)
  • Light and sound technology (if required)
  • Other necessary equipment (if required)
How is the price determined?

The price mainly depends on the following factors:

  • The desired duration of the performance
  • Travel time and travel costs
  • Any lighting and/or sound technology required
  • Any waiting and preparation time
  • The group size
  • Familiarity of the act.

Ultimately, every party is unique. Therefore, we are happy to discuss your requirements in advance and can make an appropriate tailor-made proposal.
