WEDDING AND EVENT PLANNING
In addition to top notch music, our detailed planning is something past clients have greatly appreciated! We utilize a proprietary wedding planning document that covers EVERY detail you'll need to think about in terms of your wedding music and announcements. We aim to make planning as simple and fun as possible!
We agree to learn up to 4 new songs that aren't already on our song list to help customize our performance for you. We typically only take a break during your main entree for dinner, but play the entire rest of the reception. We coordinate all of the timeline details with your venue, caterer, and photographer in advance of your wedding, so that everyone is on the same page before the date of your wedding. We've got a track record of coming up with creative solutions to any challenges you might encounter along the way.
BAND SIZE AND INSTRUMENTATION
We offer a variety of instrumentation options to accommodate different size and space requirements:
6 pieces - female singer, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, and sax
7 pieces - male and female singers, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, and sax
8 pieces - male and female singers, keyboards, guitar, bass drums, sax, and trumpet
9 pieces - male and female singers, keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, sax, trumpet, and trombone
We're happy to provide input on the right size band based on your venue, and also the styles of music you're most interested in!
CEREMONY AND COCKTAIL HOUR:
We can professionally cover your ceremony and cocktail hour needs. Our keyboardist, Andrea Shaut, is an incredibly talented classical pianist - currently the pianist for the world-famous West Point Military Academy Glee Club. She has experience playing at hundreds of wedding ceremonies. We can add other instrumentalists or vocalists for the ceremony as well.
For your cocktail hour, our popular options include solo piano (jazz or classical), sax / piano duo, guitar / bass duo, or a jazz trio (horn, guitar, and bass). All of our cocktail hour options will provide great background music for your guests to enjoy!
PAST CLIENT REFERENCES:
Every client we've worked with has offered to be a reference for us. Not a bad track record! We can tell you we're great, but it's better to hear it from others that have worked with us. We'll gladly share the names/numbers/email addresses of some of our most recent clients so you can hear how much they loved us directly from them. In addition to awesome music, the other themes you'll hear from everyone are that we're organized, responsive, accommodating, professional, and fun to work with. Also, search for us on Wedding Wire in Westchester Bands to read a ton of reviews from our clients!
"I can't say enough about how professional, talented, accommodating, and caring Joe and the whole Kazz crew were. Thanks to Kazz, my wedding was the best party I've ever been to, and I'm not the only one with that opinion." - Chris and Kerry
"We wanted to take a moment to thank you for helping to make our wedding the most special, magical, outrageously funky night of our lives. You guys blew us away with your utmost professionalism, enthusiasm, and pure talent. Our guests still talk about how much fun they had and how great you all were." - Annie and Chris
"You can tell that they love music and that they love playing together, which means a lot when it's your wedding." - Ariel and Naava
"They were so easy to work with and coordinated a lot of the details and flow of the wedding with the other vendors without us even having to ask. The week before the wedding was hectic, and Kazz was the only part of the wedding that we did not have to worry about. They were on top of everything and beyond prepared." - Kate and Whit
