“capitalJAZZ” provides classy, subtle background jazz music for almost any type of event. The ensemble plays in a wide variety of feels within the jazz style. When you invite the group to provide music for your wedding or special event you can expect to experience fun swing, serene bossa nova’s, relaxed funk and gentle jazz ballads. The ensembles goal is to entertain and provide a classy atmosphere by providing background music, and as such, the music remains subtle and does not over power your event unless you have requested that we be a more featured aspect. If customization is required, there are many variables that you can adjust to your preferences, including the specific musical instruments, the number of musicians, whether or not vocals will be included, the dress code the musicians will follow, the performance/break schedule, the scheduling of the groups set up and pack up, the booking length and many other aspects. We can provide music in more then one room at your events venue and can even have multiple ensembles performing in different rooms or locations at the same time if it helps you to achieve the event you want. The ensemble and the way in which it will fit into your event can be adjusted in many different ways so as to fit your needs. Whether your event is formal, casual or anything in between, we can “jazz it up or jazz it down” to match. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ambiance and “finishing touch” this group will add to your event!
“We were extremely impressed by the professionalism, friendliness, and musicianship of the Mike McNeil Group [now named “capitalJAZZ”]. Mike himself was the most responsive vendor we worked with during the course of wedding planning. We would highly recommend this group for any wedding cocktail hour.”

Former clients include: Numerous wedding couples (of course!), The Canadian Association of Financial officers/Association canadienne des agents financiers, Loblaws, Launch! and many others.
