5 Four Soul offers a wide variety of jazz, exploring styles from the most contemporary and smooth jazz genres to fusion and traditional. Each member brings many years of performance experience and a common love for all things jazz. That love translates into an enjoyable music experience your guest will not only hear, but feel.
We offer a variety of music suitable for any occasion, featuring a selection of familiar melodies and new twists to old favorites. We can provide subtle, but engaging, background music as well as upbeat grooves to impress and de-stress.
5 Four Soul also performs at church events, offering inspirational selections as well as Gospel Jazz arrangements. 5 Four Soul is a 5 piece instrumental group, but periodically works with vocalists to meet client needs. For your special night, we are also willing to learn and perform a song that can be incorporated into your event (such as the bride/groom first dance, father-daughter dance, etc.).
We will also provide music during all band breaks to ensure continuous listening pleasure. If you have special music for this time, we are happy to incorporate your selections as well. We are well equipped for small to medium sized indoor and outdoor venues, with the ability to accommodate any event through various partners in the sound reinforcement business.
We will spend as much time as necessary prior to the event to ensure your needs are clearly understood and met, including a walk-through of the venue, face-to-face meetings, phone and email. We will coordinate all of the details with you before hand to ensure smooth execution. Our commitment to professionalism goes beyond the music by ensuring all agreed upon equipment, preparation, arrival times and appropriate attire expectations are met. These factors are important to the success of every event and we will do all we can to ensure that we are not a detail you have to worry about.
Please keep in mind that prices vary because of traveling expenses, sound reinforcement needs and the length of the event. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you might have. 5 Four Soul looks forward to working with you.
