More about Jazz Bands

Jazz Bands for Weddings

Often the jazz band would provide music for the evening celebration at your wedding in Cambridge. However, some people like to set the atmosphere of the drinks reception with a Jazz Band, or even Lounge Jazz during the meal. It is dependent on the kind of atmosphere you are wanting to create during the different sections of your wedding day.

Jazz Played outdoors

Some styles of jazz lend themselves to being performed outdoors. But remember that the weather is unpredictable in the UK. You might hope to have a fine day for your event in Cambridge, and it may even start out sunny, but a shower can come on in minutes. Most bands play with a PA system, which can take half an hour to dismantle, by which time it could be destroyed by the rain. So, unless it is a Trad. band playing without amplification, always set up the band under cover.

Jazz Band Styles

Jazz means something different to different people and covers a huge range of music and styles that have developed and split since the late 1800s to the present day. Furthermore, to an extent there are regional variations in what is expected, so someone asking for a Jazz Band in Cambridge may have a different style in mind to a person asking the same thing in another part of the country. So, when someone asks us for a 'Jazz Band' we first have to discover what they have in their mind as 'Jazz'. That is why we let you listen to as many of our bands as possible on our web site, so that you can select the bands that play the style you like. (Go to 'Search' then select 'Jazz' from the first drop down box.) Because many of our bands cover a wide range of jazz and we are possibly limited in what we can let you hear by the recordings they happen to have made, it might be useful for you to read about the styles of jazz that our bands cover in our section on Jazz Repertoire.

About Cambridge

Cambridge is a city of crocuses and daffodils on the Backs, of green open spaces and cattle grazing only 500 yards from the market square. The Cambridge of Brooke, Byron, Newton and Rutherford, of the summer idyll of punts, 'bumps', cool willows and May Balls. Yet Cambridge was important long before the University existed. Here, at the meeting of dense forests to the south and trackless, marshy Fens to the north, was the lowest reliable fording place of the River Cam, or Granta.

In the first century BC an Iron Age Belgic tribe built a settlement on what is now Castle Hill. Around AD40 the Romans took over the site and it became the crossing point for the Via Devana which linked Colchester with the legions in Lincoln and beyond. The Saxons followed, then the Normans under William the Conqueror, who raised a castle on a steep mound as a base for fighting the Saxon rebel, Hereward the Wake, deep in the Fens at Ely. The motte of William's castle still stands and Ely Cathedral is visible from the top on a clear day.

The first scholars didn't arrive in Cambridge until 1209 and another 75 years passed before Hugh de Balsham, Bishop of Ely, founded Peterhouse, the first college. Clare (1326), Pembroke (1347), Gonville and Caius (1348), Trinity Hall (1350) and Corpus Christi (1352) were established in the first half of the fourteenth century. Ten more colleges were founded during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, including Christ's (1505), King's (1441), Queens' (1448), Jesus (1496), St. John's (1511), Trinity (1546), and Emmanuel (1584)
