FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What type of music do you play?
We play cool, hip, straight-ahead jazz - the perfect musical backdrop to your upscale gathering.
Why should we hire you?
All of our musicians are exceptionally talented and bring a lifetime of dedication to their craft. We approach the music - and the occasion - respectfully, intelligently, and artistically.
One of the comments we often hear comes from guests who tell us: "We don’t usually listen to jazz - but we absolutely love what you guys are playing!" The compliment our couples most often receive is: "This is the best band we've ever heard at a wedding! Where did you find these guys?"
How big is the group?
Our most popular configuration is our classic Cadillac Jazz Trio with upright bass, drums, and piano (we bring a keyboard if the venue doesn’t have a piano). We also feature an awesome sax player in our soulful and swinging Cadillac Jazz Quartet. If space or budget is key, our Cadillac Jazz Duo with upright bass & guitar is an excellent minimalist option.
How long do you play?
Every event has a different timeline so we remain flexible. A cocktail “hour” could go 90 minutes and dinner might only last 30! Sometimes we're hired to stay later and play a nice set of swing and standards - perfect for dancing & listening.
Can you play for our wedding ceremony?
Our pianist performs a beautiful repertoire of solo classical, jazz, and romantic pop during your Prelude (seating), plus select pieces for your Processional (entrance) & Recessional (exit). This works best for our group when your ceremony is being held in the same general location as your reception.
Do you perform for same-sex celebrations?
The only discrimination we practice is our refined taste in music.
What do you wear?
Most events we do are formal or semi-formal attire. Jacket & tie may become optional based on the weather. Either way, we always look sharp.
Do you have a vocalist?
Our passion is performing jazz in the timeless tradition of the great instrumentalists. If your heart is set on a party band with some amazing singers, we can offer recommendations from our pro network.
