Ottawa Band Reviews

When searching for a band to hire for your special event, it is certainly not a bad idea to check out independently provided Ottawa band reviews on independent 3rd party websites that aren’t in business relationships with the bands they are reviewing (if you can find sites that provide Ottawa band reviews that also meet this criteria which may be difficult).

As you check out Ottawa band reviews please check out some comments and reviews of our group capitalJAZZ below, which have been provided to us directly by people and organizations who have invited us to provide music for their event or special day at many different venues over the last 6 years or so. You can also check out verified reviews on our profile on The Knot by clicking here or the logo below. We hope you’ll be asking us to perform for you at your event or special day as well!

“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!”

Hello Mike, 

I just wanted to write a quick message about how grateful we were to have the musician’s join us for my mother’s 55th garden party. The piano and bass players were professional, so talented, and a perfect addition to the event, my mother was very surprised and it really added to the day. As well, they were so wonderful to work with not complaining at all through the heat wave, and interacting with the guests, it was the perfect combination of smooth jazz and good conversation. Finally, Mike, you were so great to work with, you were so clear with exactly what we could expect and how the band would work before, during and after the event. 

Thank you for everything, 

Logan Taylor

“Mike and his team were a pleasure to work with. They were extremely flexible and able to provide us with all our requirements. We were not sure if anyone would actually get up for any dances after the meal, but Mike and his crew were able to provide a mixture of music that attracted several couples to get up and dance. Please thank Mike and his Jazz Band for a great night of entertaining music that complimented the evenings event and resulted in an overall successful dinner.”

“capitalJAZZ was the perfect ensemble for our event. Not only did Mike provide provide a fast and professional response to a short notice request, but the ensemble he put together couldn’t have been more perfect. The band became the heart of our event and was what everyone was talking about the next day”

“CapitalJazz exceeded our expectations. From the initial contact up to the day of the event, they were a pleasure to deal with. They were open to suggestions and were willing to accommodate our requests. The music was great. A Jazz twist on traditional Christmas songs was enough to get the party going. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the event was a hit. I would highly recommend CapitalJazz to colleagues and friends as well as consider them for future events at our company.”

The band provided the perfect ambiance music and even dressed for the part! Mike was professional and accommodating.

“The trio Mike put together for our Spring Open House in May was a perfect fit.  Our theme was ‘Swing in to Spring’ and the group performed the perfect mix of jazz and swing to compliment our theme beautifully.  The residents and guests alike commented on how lovely and fitting the music was.  Mike’s group is definitely on our ‘call again’ list.”
