Frequently Asked Questions

Do you provide emcee services?


We can help you lead your guests through your big day, or assist with emcee services and announcements throughout the evening.

How much space do you need?

Minimum requirements:

Solo and duo: 6' x 6'

Trio: 8' x 6'

Quartet: 12' x 10'

Quintet: 16' x 12'

Are there any electricity requirements?

At least one 20-amp outlet

For most AJC Jazz groups, one 20 or 30 amp outlet (the regular kind, like at home) will probably suffice. To avoid overloading, larger sound reinforcement solutions and additional lighting may require more than one outlet.

Does the band take breaks?

Yes (short ones)

Per standard protocol, the band will break for about 20 minutes per 50 minutes of performance. During breaks, we'll play music through our sound system to match the genre and style of the live band.

Do you take requests?

Yes! (with a little notice)

Let us know what you'd like to hear and we can arrange for a fantastic live performance of your special song.

Do you provide staging and lighting?

Lighting: optionally
Staging: no

AJC Jazz groups can provide band and stage lighting, although we generally do not handle other lighting needs, such as event uplighting. We do not provide staging, although a stage is preferred.

If you need assistance with staging or event uplighting, contact us and we can help you locate an event professional!

Can I hire more than one AJC Jazz group?


It's common to hire separate groups for different portions of an event (for example, a soloist for a wedding ceremony and a quintet for the reception). Contact AJC Jazz for a quote on multiple bands.
