• Wedding at The Canadian Museum of Nature


     “capitalJAZZ” is a jazz band in Ottawa that provides classy, subtle live 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 band 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 bands 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 bands 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 band 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!


“Mike, where do I start….

We were so impressed with your band, we hardly have words to describe our night! From day 1 you were so responsive and professional that I thought you were too good to be true. You assembled our band so perfectly and precisely that we can’t stop talking about it. So many positive responses from our guests and from the venue staff. We loved every aspect of it from the warmup to the final note. My only regret is that we didn’t watch your entire act because we were being drawn away for various reasons. Thank you for all your hard work and assistance throughout the year. You made our special day so memorable and I’m forever thankful. Bravo!”
