“capitalJAZZ” is one of the most professional jazz bands in Ottawa. 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.
