Jazz for Corporate Events
The Cocktail Hour Jazz Band is the perfect accompaniment to Corporate Functions, Awards Ceremonies, and Conferences. We have the edge on the competition for two reasons: ambiance and professionalism. You want the entertainment to reflect your company image. You want it to look and sound professional. So check out the taster videos opposite and hear for yourself: sophisticated, smooth and slick...
We are vastly experienced, professional, discreet and well presented, and we understand the importance of good communication, organisation, timings and protocol. Previous engagements have included playing in business office foyers, restaurants, tennis clubs, London livery halls, hotels and golf-club settings.
When you hire musicians who have the experience of working with the likes of Madonna, Claire Martin OBE, Jamie Cullum, Tom Jones and playing for live TV and radio, or for BBC recordings, you can relax, knowing that we must have some smarts. We turn up on time, answer all messages and phonecalls promptly, set up and pack away at the event with a minimum of fuss and maximum efficiency.
The layout of the venue, the number of guests and the itinerary will determine what kind of ensemble you want to book. For example, in smaller venues, where the guests will need to talk to each other, the best ensemble to book is a trio or quartet without brass instruments (like saxophone). In this case, a guitar trio or piano trio, or maybe a guitar/piano quartet is the least obtrusive sound. However, if it is a large venue with guests moving about you will want the sound to carry throughout the whole space, and then the warm tones of a saxophone are perfect.
For larger venues or outdoor locations, such as a roof garden, you will probably need the band to be amplified. We have the necessary amplification for any event. All this is provided at no extra cost.
