Can you provide background musicians for hire in the West Midlands?

Need something slightly scaled-down? Our jazz musicians in the West Midlands are perfect for wartime-themed evenings and summer garden parties.

They are compact and easy to accommodate and play everything from your favourite standards to jazzy versions of modern pop hits.

If you’re looking for something more refined, our jazz bands in the West Midlands cover a range of sub-genres including gypsy jazz bands, jazz trios, wedding jazz bands, background jazz bands.

All will play non-intrusive, sophisticated background music that your guests can talk over.

For the evening, consider hiring a swing band to get the party started.

Do we need to provide any equipment for the band?

Our bands all come fully equipped for your event – it’s just worth getting in touch if you think your event will exceed 250 guests, as extra equipment might then be necessary. You just need to make sure that the band has a power source to plug in to and a space to perform!

We recommend a flat and sheltered stage area of at least 3x3 meters for a 3-piece band – then add an extra metre squared per band member that you have booked.

A raised stage is preferable for maximum impact but our bands are flexible to all kinds of set ups!

How can we save money on our West Midlands band?

Before you book more musicians for afternoon background music, check whether members of your band can provide this – it'll save you additional costs, such as travel.
