Choosing the musicians for a particular event is what we are best at and is the main reason to hire live music from us.
The first criteria is that they have excellent skills, reliability and professionalism. It also depends on the other musicians who are booked - for example, we would usually book the lead musician first, then ask the lead musician for recommendations, for example which musicians they are familiar with, or get on with well.
Some of the musicians are post-graduates from one of the top jazz conservatoires in London (or the world for that matter) - the Royal Academy of Music
or the Guildhall School of Music and Drama
However, by attending and performing regularly at London's top jazz jam sessions, we get to see and meet the musicians who are currently playing well, who are the best people out there to perform with .
Many of the musicians that we book are highly regarded and have big careers in music. It is for that reason that we don't publish their names on this website. If they are touring with your band, releasing albums etc.. then they don't want a Google search on their names to reveal that they are available for weddings and corporate gigs.
(Incidentally, A-list performers such as Stevie Wonder, Alanis Morissette etc.. are
available for weddings and corporate gigs, but for vast sums of money and tight secrecy, and the client is usually royalty or an international financial institution!)
