Booking The Band

Dr Jazz and the Cheshire Cats Big Band is available for hire to perform at selected events.

Some reasons why you should book Dr Jazz and the Cheshire Cats:

  • There is nothing like live music to make your occasion go with a swing and add a touch of class to the proceedings!
  • We can perform a wide range of big band music which will get guests of all ages up on the dance floor.
  • Dr Jazz and the Cheshire cats can provide a full evening’s entertainment so you may be able to avoid the ‘traditional’ wedding disco.
  • Unlike many ‘function bands’, we perform for only a limited number of events each year. This means that we enjoy playing and want you to enjoy the evening too!
  • We take the time to devise and rehearse a specific programme for each gig we play.
  • The band is a co-operative, non-profit making organisation, so we are not just out for a fast buck! All of the money we earn goes back into supporting the band – from running costs such as rehearsal room hire, to purchasing equipment, music and commissioning new works and arrangements.

Before contacting us, it is worth taking a look at the answers to some of our Frequently Asked Questions.

If you are interested in booking the band, please contact us with the details of your event. Our manager will contact you to discuss the details of your booking and can arrange for you to come along to one of our rehearsals to hear and meet the band and chat with our musical director. If you decide to go ahead and book the band, we will ask you to sign a contract and normally require a deposit of around 20% to secure the booking.
