What is Jazz?
Jazz is improvisation-based music. It originated in New Orleans by mixing different styles of older music styles. The original Jazz music was primarily influenced by West African rhythms. It was a mix of ragtime, blues, folk, negro spirituals and French marches. In the heyday of Jazz, the Swing era was the most popular. At that time, Jazz was mostly dancing music. Jazz later evolved into a more experimental type of music. Entirely new genres of music were formed from Jazz, such as Soul, R & B, funk and pop.
Jazz songs are totally versatile. This genre of music is always up to date. There are even now, popular hits with a strong jazz influence. It is also enjoyed by the young and old alike. Jazz can give you many different feelings. It can provide a quiet, sophisticated atmosphere but it can also energise your guests. Jazz can be anything you want it to be.

Begin the evening with some quiet jazz record
At the beginning of the evening, we advise you to start with some soft jazz. Guests can mingle and enjoy a drink while the jazz artists play softly in the background. A saxophone provides subtle background music creates an excellent atmosphere. Alternatively, a live band with jazz instruments can make your day special.
Give your guests some upbeat jazz
As the evening progresses and people loosen up, you can play some more upbeat jazz hits for your guests. You want your guests to have a great time dancing at your wedding, and smooth jazz is definitely the music to keep your guests on the dancefloor.
