“capitalJAZZ” is one of the most professional Ottawa bands. We provide classy, subtle, completely 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. 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. This includes 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. Looking for a jazz trio in Ottawa? We got it! Quartet? Quintet? 10 piece band? All covered.
We work with you in a very responsive and efficient manner to get everything organized the way you need it (and ahead of time) with minimal work required on your end. We are available by email and phone to help you get things organized. We also offer a free/no commitment required in person consultation. We provide and set up all of the musical equipment necessary. If a full sound system and/or light system is required, let us know as we can also provide that! We work and communicate very well with venue staff to make sure everything goes well.
As a group of experienced musicians forming one of the most reliable Ottawa bands, we have very likely performed in many of the potential venues you may be considering for your wedding or special event and we may be able to provide you with advice regarding how these venues might match up with the vibe you are trying to achieve based on our experience working there. We can also provide some general advice regarding scheduling of the music, speeches and formalities etc…
From wedding venues like Evermore Weddings and Events and Le Belvedere, to Hotels such as The Westin and Chateau Laurier, to the Museum of Nature, to event centers such as The Shaw Center! Prime Ministers, private companies, unions and wedding couples have all experienced our music! We hope to play for you sometime soon too!
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. Whether you are looking for a jazz trio in Ottawa or a Quartet/Quintet/other configuration- Sit back, relax and enjoy the ambiance and “finishing touch” one of the most versatile jazz bands in Ottawa will add to your event!
If a jazz group is not what you are looking for, we are happy to refer you (at no charge) directly to many Ottawa bands that play other styles of music. Just email us, tell us what kind of music you are looking for and we’ll send you an email with some contact info for bands that will fit what you need. Again, this is not a paid referral or a booking service. We are simply happy to help you make contact with some of our respected musical friends and colleagues if we think they might be the right people for your event!
