Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between jazz, swing, and blues?

Jazz and swing are very similar in style; both upbeat and rhythmical. However, swing tends to be less instrumental and was developed for dancing purposes. Blues on the other hand is more lyrical and expresses emotions of sadness.

What do jazz bands consist of?

Typically, a jazz band will contain around 3-6 members although this isn’t a written rule and can vary depending on the act and the lineups they offer. Instruments played within a jazz band also vary but tend to include horns such as saxophone and trombone, clarinet, piano, double bass and drums.

What are jazz standards?

A jazz musician will have their own repertoire that contains the basic jazz standards. These are songs that are performed by virtually all jazz musicians worldwide and form the basis of jazz arrangements and improvisations.

Can I hire a jazz band outside of the UAE?

CASE STUDY: Tinsel and Jazz

The band greeted everyone with toe-tapping rhythms and feel-good tunes upon arrival, reminding us of their talents as they performed a diverse repertoire featuring jazzy covers of recognisable hits.

It was an evening of festive fun and themed entertainment that took place at Buckland Tout-Saints, a gorgeous secluded manor nestled in the rolling hills of Devon. In addition to the jazz trio, our Classic Burlesque Performer performed a sensational, sultry routine, we solved a murder mystery plot brought to life by a cast of talented actors and Party Band Session had the team up on their feet, dancing the night away.
