But How Is This Possible?....

The Jazz Cannons choice of songs to play at your event will be very carefully selected. Over the years of playing at weddings, private parties and corporate events a filtering process occurs.

Want A Little More Detail?...

Here’s where we break down each genre and show you why our approach and the way we perform will work for you and your event...

Swing & jazz – All swing songs are carefully chosen to be ‘mainstream’ so that guests of all ages will know all the songs or at least know the melodies. All song choices are medium to uptempo with danceable rhythms so that your guests will feel the need to fill the dance floor. After all swing music was the dance music of its day. Most significantly this style lends itself to really reinforcing that sophisticated ambiance your guests will feel great in.

Rat Pack - The Rat Pack repertoire provides a classic Vegas show style feel. Whenever the Rat pack greats like Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr and Dean Martin put on a show it was the talk of the town. The style and charisma of that era oozes from the stage when these songs are performed by The Jazz Cannons. Your event will feel like the exclusive occasion you dreamt of. Your guests will feel that sense of occasion as those did who attended one of the legendary Rat Pack shows.

Latin – The bands careful choice of mainstream well known Latin classics will ensure that as the night progresses the dance floor goes from full to packed. Making sure that dance floor is full while maintaining that feel of class and sophistication takes a skill that has been well perfected by The Jazz Cannons. The bands Latin repertoire is a sophisticated alternative to mainstream pop music which is what most bands will default to.

Classic pop and soul – This takes the band into a more mainstream territory while again keeping the ambience very sophisticated yet fun. These songs have been carefully selected as they sound great with the band instrumentation and will ensure the dance floor is kept full until your begging your guests to go home!.
