Weddings…

A Wedding is the most special day - we can help

The JazzCats can work with you to sculpt the most perfect day. We have been performing at all types of weddings for 12 years and have a gained a wealth of experience to help you plan something that can be rather daunting at the outset. Some ideas for you:

  • • A solo guitarist, pianist or duo to play that special piece as you walk down the aisle;
  • • A trad style jazz band to start the champagne flowing
  • • Sophisticated subtle dinner music to accompany your wedding breakfast
  • • A full-on party band that you can dance the night away to
  • • A dance DJ to play between sets or at the end of evening
  • • All of the above!

Finally...a bit about us

The Jazzcats are managed by James Arben, who is also a professional saxophone and woodwind player, composer and educator. James has played in many jazz bands, pop bands, west-end shows and function bands. He has toured the world and played at Ronnie Scott's several times.

 

James studied music at Oxford University, and after this he briefly became a management consultant! After two years he decided to re-think and go back to university to do a master's degree in Jazz Performance at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. It was here that his musical career took off and he met some lifelong friends and top musicians that now form The JazzCats.

 

We understand that having an instrumental talent is just the start of achieving success in the entertainment industry. Reliability, friendliness, passion, ambition, a good reputation amongst colleagues and clients, punctuality, looking good as well as sounding good are all crucial.
