Depending on your event, you may want a different style of music. Cocktail hour at a wedding? Maybe "quiet jazz." Holiday party for work? Maybe something more up, like "soul-jazz." Wine-tasting? Maybe "straight-ahead jazz" for that classy feel. Whatever you choose, the musicians can adapt to the event.
• Quiet Jazz (ballad-based, soft, but never "soft-jazz" elevator style)
• Jazz (more upbeat songs mixed in, or strait-ahead - classy, old-fashioned)
• Soul-Jazz (Jazz that is a bit more hip, bluesy, with a touch of R&B) *Duo, Trio, and Quartet only.
• Jazz-Blues (Jazz that is, well, a bit more bluesy)
• Contemporary (divserse, can include instumental versions of popular music such as Van Morrison and the Beatles)
