If you would like to receive a free quote, please feel free to send us an email and say hi! You can approach this in 2 basic ways:
For a basic estimate, you can simply provide us with whatever general info you may currently have and we can provide you with a number of different options with fairly accurate estimated fees.
For an exact quote you can provide us with the following info (we only ask for the location and address so that we can determine the travel distance and the cost of parking).
Location: Venue name and address?
Time the musicians must have their equipment set up by:
Time the musicians can begin to pack up:
Number of Musicians:
Musical Instruments: Our standard group is usually Jazz Guitar/Bass/Drums OR Piano/Bass/Drums. Sometimes people ask that Saxophone be added or that we perform as a smaller group (for example a Duo of Guitar/Bass or Solo Piano). We also have other instruments available and there are many combination possibilities.
Instrumental music only or instrumental music with vocals included(?):
Do you need access to a microphone and P.A. system for guests to make speeches and announcements? If you need access to this we can provide it for a small fee. However, if you have a Sound Company or DJ then it may already be included by them (or even by the venue). If not, it may still make more sense to request this through them for various reasons (including the likelihood that they will be on site for a longer portion of the event then we will be). If you need us to provide this we need to know since we typically we don’t bring a microphone or P.A. for most rooms as it is not required for background music in small to medium size rooms (we usually just have our instrument amplifiers).
Do you need recorded music during the bands breaks? We can provide this for a small fee, but again you may want to check into whether or not it would make more sense for your sound company, DJ or the venue to provide this depending on details. If you need us to provide this we would need to know since we would possibly need to bring a small P.A. and Ipod set up. Depending on how long the booking is and how many breaks would be involved (and how long they would be) it can be nice to actually have a break from the music for short breaks.
Other: Are there any other special details you think we should know? Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns or if you have any ideas for how capitalJAZZ can fit in and add something to your wedding or special event!
FYI, we have a 2 new promotions on that you can use to reduce the cost of your booking.
If you refer someone and they book us (for example a friend who is planning a wedding or event), we will discount the admin fee on your booking 75% (this saves you some tax as well). Your referral would receive 10% off their admin fee.
If you make a post to Facebook or Instagram linking to our website and you send it to your friends/contacts, you get 25% off the admin fee (you need to screen shot the post showing some responses or comments and email it to us- you can blur out names, pictures or personally identifiable info in the comments if you want to). Bookings we may receive as a result of your Facebook/Instagram posts do not provide you further discounts on your booking and those booking themselves do not receive discounts.
The admin fee varies booking to booking as it is a percentage of the pre expenses/pre tax amount.
These discounts would apply to whatever the admin fee ends up being for your booking and we would show your discount clearly on the contract. You can receive both discounts and use them together on one booking (or on separate bookings if you think one might be useful for a future more expensive booking). Unused discounts expire after 3 years. Discounts can only be used for bookings the band is available for and discounts cannot be cashed in for anything other then a discount off the admin fee on a booking. The band reserves the right to cancel and not honor any unused discounts if the band decides to stop working. Each discount can only be earned once per person. These discounts apply to both Ottawa and Gatineau Jazz bookings as well as anywhere we accept bookings!
Thank you very much for taking the time to check out our website. We hope to be providing some Ottawa or Gatineau Jazz for you soon! Have a great day!
