Advice on booking Charlie's jazz band.
For the evening of your wedding we propose our Munjenta Café Latin Jazz Quintet, which can play chilled and in the background or upfront and dancy and usually plays both as the evening progresses.
We have organised some of our repertoire into special sets, such as New Orleans & Trad Jazz for example or Max's French Cafe Music, the idea being that restaurants who book the band can devise a themed menu to go with it. The themed sets can also work well for private parties.How loud is the band?
Charlie usually plays his sax and clarinets acoustically, i.e. no microphone and his band play at low volume to suit.
The singer has a mic of course so we bring our PA. You may of course opt for an entirely instrumental program with no singing.
The bass and guitar use amps, so we are not usually entirely acoustic, although we can be entirely acoustic if there is no electricity available.
If we are playing for a function (wedding, party etc) we like guests to be able to chat comfortably while the band is playing. If we are giving a concert people will be listening so we do not need to play loud.
