How much does it cost to hire Sydney Jazz Collective?

Sydney Jazz Collective Band

The cost of each performance depends on a few different variables including: size of band, distance travelled, date, number of hours required on site. Please provide this information when you contact us and we will send you a quote with several options within 12 hours.

How long does the band normally play for?

Sydney Jazz Collective Band

The band can be booked for any desired period of time from 1 hour up to a maximum of 7 hours.

How long does the band play for in each set before taking a break? For example over a 5hr period how many breaks do you take? And how long is each break?

Sydney Jazz Collective Band

Sets are usually 45min with a 15min break in between. Over a 5hr booking you would normally fit approx 4-5 x 45min sets around speeches and other formalities. We are happy for you to schedule these sets in at whatever times would be most suitable for you. A good idea would be to try to schedule the band meal to coincide with your speeches so you can make the most of the live music.

How are your quote prices determined?

Sydney Jazz Collective Band

Quote prices are determined by [Number of musicians x Number of hours required on site]. This means quotes can nearly always be reduced by booking smaller ensemble options, or less hours.

What is the most noticeable difference between the 4B Quartet and 5B Quintet when it comes to the dance factor?

Sydney Jazz Collective Band

The most noticeable difference between the 4B Quartet and the 5B Quintet is in the textural layers of sound. So while the repertoire of songs is essentially the same, the Quintet tends to have a fuller sound and be more conducive to dancing due the dedicated bass player laying down grooves to dance to. We often have people up and dancing when performing in the 4B Quartet configuration, but we can guarantee a full dance floor every time in the 5B Quintet configuration. The 5B Quintet instrumentation also allows a more intimate Acoustic Trio to perform the opening cocktail set nestled amongst your guests, and this is a very popular option during drinks before a meal.

I'm looking for an energetic live band to get people dancing, can you provide that?

Sydney Jazz Collective Band

Yes. No problem at all keep the musical atmosphere “up beat” throughout the night. The online samples reflect a range of possible tempos for various purposes, however we pride ourselves on our ability to get a dance floor cranking for people who love good live music!

What gear and equipment does the band provide? Do you provide all the sound equipment you use free of charge?

Sydney Jazz Collective Band

Necessary sound equipment will be provided by Sydney Jazz Collective for functions up to 200 guests at no additional cost. For events larger than 200 guests, it will often be necessary for the client to hire a larger PA for the band’s sound to be heard clearly in very large rooms. This can sometimes be sourced through the venue where your event is taking place, or we can help organise audio support through our contacts in the music industry.

Are you happy to come dressed according to a particular theme for themed events?

Sydney Jazz Collective Band

Yes. We have provided musical entertainment for many themed corporate events and parties and would be very happy to hear your planned theme and try wherever possible to integrates the band’s music and appearance into the theme of your event.

What happens if I want extra time on the night? I.e. more time than originally detailed in our quote?

Sydney Jazz Collective Band

It is usually no problem to arrange some extra time on the night of a performance (providing all the band members don’t have another commitment immediately afterwards). Extra time is generally charged at $100/musician/hour or part. We strongly encourage clients to formally book all the time they think they would like in the initial quote, as we cannot absolutely guarantee that the band will be available for extra time if this has not been arranged formally prior to the performance date.

Do you take requests from guests on the night?

Sydney Jazz Collective Band

Yes. We are happy to take requests from guests on the night. While it’s not possible to perform every song and style with a fixed configuration of instruments, we can usually work out a few great songs that the band loves to play and the guests love to hear.
