With over fifteen years experience providing wedding entertainment this band has provided good quality entertainment for the bride and groom at over three hundred weddings, live music for entertainment for all parts of the wedding day.
Acoustic Jass is a quartet (Trumpet, Clarinet, Banjo & Sousaphone), the music they perform at weddings is well known traditional jazz, ballads and popular music of the early 20th century, which can be the entertainment or just background music for any part of your wedding day.
This jazz band is truly acoustic and mobile, and can perform their music on the move as the pictures show. Although the band is shown playing outside, this jazz bands music has been just as entertaining inside at many wedding receptions
As an idea, a wedding day could include the band playing gentle background music to entertain the guests on arrival at the wedding or wedding reception while the photos are being taken, then moving to the dance floor to play music for dancing at whatever tempo the guests want. Sometimes they've led the wedding party from the ceremony to the wedding reception.
This jazz band has the advantages:
Acoustic Jass tailor the choice of tunes according to the bride and groom's wishes. If you want background music during the wedding breakfast or champagne reception and then exciting foot tapping dancing music for the evening's party this jazz band can provide it. When the wedding entertainment is required for larger venues and static performances the band can use amplification.

Acoustic Jass has many tunes on their list, mainly from the 1900's, to 1940's, including well known tunes like All of Me, Tuxedo Junction, Avalon, Honeysuckle Rose, Bye Bye Blackbird. Most of these were recorded at some time by Louis Armstrong, but then he recorded the best tunes of the era, however Acoustic Jass is not a Louis Armstrong tribute band.
If the bride and groom would like the jazz band to play a special tune not currently in their repertoire they will learn it for you (provided it fits their style!) and, unusually for a jazz band they have some waltzes amongst the music in their repertoire.
