"Artisan Jazz did a fantastic job at my sister's wedding. From start to finish, Kevin of Artisan Jazz was very prompt and professional in every correspondence. My sister wanted a classy lunch-time reception with no dancing, yet entertaining for her guests. That is exactly what Artisan Jazz delivered. The volume was perfect for conversation, their song choice was perfect for the occasion, and their personalities were enjoyable to watch. The band even honored a last minute request for a very special dance. We received countless compliments on the band, and I would highly recommend them!" -- Danielle M, Medina, OH, 8/18/2012

Artisan's music is perfect for 1920's-1950's theme-style weddings.

It usually takes the group one and a half hours to set up. We will be set up and ready to play at least 15 minutes before your first guest arrives. We will work seamlessly with all the other professionals who are working for you. You will never have to worry about conflicts.

*Do we need to provide any equipment?
No, Artisan Jazz will bring all the equipment we need. We just need a standard 3-prong electrical outlet within a reasonable distance of where we will be playing, and an area that is large enough for three men with instruments. Also, if your event is outside, cover from the sun/rain is required. If needed, Artisan Jazz can provide a shelter for a nominal fee.
*How loud is the group?
Artisan Jazz is not loud. Whether you choose to hire Artisan Jazz for the night's featured entertainment or for soft ambient music, we will work with you to make certain our volume level is perfect for your event. Since many events are a time for guests to socialize and mingle, we never play so loudly that conversation becomes difficult. If you want us to play louder or more quietly, just ask us and we'll gladly accommodate your needs.

Artisan Jazz's rates are very resonable. The group can offer you the most attractive rate if your venue has a piano on site. Please be certain to mention if a piano is available when you place your Gigmasters' gig request.

"As a family of professional musicians, we have high expectations and standards for performers, and we were absolutely thrilled with the Artisan Jazz duo! Their variety of music was top-notch, and they really added a lot of class to the rehearsal dinner. They were always quick to respond via email, and were set up in plenty of time. They were professional, talented, and I'd love to have them for another event! Easy to work with and enjoyable to listen to. Five stars all around!"
