Wedding Jazz Band: The Jazz Spivs Way

These days ‘wedding jazz band’ is one of the most searched for terms on the internet when it comes to weddings. At events, we are forever being asked, ‘Do you do weddings?’ How did jazz become synonymous with a wedding?

Well, we can’t quite believe that next year it will be five years since The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan, hit our movie screens. Of course, this glittering film was a resounding success. The release also marked perhaps the pinnacle of interest in the decade of the 1920s.

The cool, the glamour and the glitz had already seen a resurgence in popularity, largely thanks to successful TV shows such as Boardwalk Empire and Downton Abbey. But it was with Gatsby that those in the know really seemed to cotton on to just how amazing a 1920s themed event could be. Even top designers, such as Gucci and Ralph Lauren revisited the classic 1920s flapper girl look, and wedding magazines did 1920s-inspired photo shoots

What will a wedding jazz band bring to your wedding?

So, almost five years on and 1920s themed weddings and wedding jazz bands still remain a popular choice with happy couples up and down the land. The traditional string quartet – classy as it is – has probably been replaced by the 1920s sound of jazz as the classic wedding entertainment choice. A wedding jazz band is certainly a great alternative to the option of a string quartet.

Wedding Jazz Band: No plugs required!

From a practical point of view – and it is the practicalities of the day that often make or break a wedding – a wedding jazz band, such as The Jazz Spivs or Silk Street Jazz is a clever and convenient choice. Just like a string quartet, they can perform acoustically. They can produce a sound more than loud enough to fill a good sized room without the need for extra sound equipment. However, versatility is the order of the day too. Should you need that extra power punch, fully certified and PAT tested PA equipment that be provided for any event.

Another thing that a wedding jazz band can match a string quartet with is their portability. With no plugs and power sockets required, The Jazz Spivs really can set up anywhere: porch, hallway, lawn or marquee!
