Tom Livon
The eventing was enhanced massively by a brilliant jazz performance by Maria & James Duo. The Guests enjoyed some smooth background music during the welcome reception and a more upbeat set after our Gala Dinner. I couldn't be happier with the band and how easy it was to work with them. I can't wait to book the duo again for our future events.
Kate & Sam
We were so lucky they managed to perform our first dance. We couldn't thank them more for the amazing entertainment they brought to our wedding. They played wonderful background music during our dinner and then more well known songs later on but they added a jazz twist which went down brilliantly with all of our guests. We will recommend this duo to anyone who wants a jazz performance at their wedding!
Suja K (Venue event)
A wonderful duo of great talent, keeping you entertained!
Frank H (Birthday party)
This duo was the perfect choice for my birthday party, very chilled and atmospheric! Thanks again!!!!


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.
