Jazz Quartets - Fantasia Music

Fantasia Music has Jazz Quartets to hire for parties, weddings, receptions, & events throughout the UK

The quintessential Jazz combination is the Jazz Quartet and all of our Jazz Quartets are experienced professionals who play at the highest level. Jazz Quartets are very versatile and can play quiet background music or more up tempo for dancing. Combinations, as with all jazz groups can vary a lot and so it is always good to seek advice on which Jazz Quartet might be best suited to your event.

For a reception just about any combination would work well, in fact the more a band is looked to for background music or to play in a more laid back style the easier it is to find a band to suit. For a Jazz Quartet to play for dancing however options become less as this is where a drummer is really needed. So if you are looking for music to dance to then be advised to book a band with drums.

These bands have a large repertoire and most will cover Standards, Latin and Swing with the exception of the Gypsy Jazz Quartets which offer a more stylised entertainment.
