Band leader Jem Sassoon answers all your commonly asked questions. For any other queries, contact us directly using the contact button in the main menu
What geographical area do you cover?

We travel all over the UK and abroad. I split my time equally between Manchester and London and can use musicians from both the North and South depending on your location, in order to minimise expenses for you.

Do you have public liability insurance?

Yes, the band has £5m of public liability insurance, and all our equipment is PAT tested. Please ask if you need copies of these documents

How much do you charge?

As every event has different requirements and is in a different location, costs vary greatly. If you contact me through this website with details of your event, I’ll be only too happy to give you a personalised quote.

How long does the band need to set up?

Once the space is totally cleared, the 4-piece takes 20 – 30 mins, the 6 or 7-piece takes 30 – 40 mins

What happens between sets?

If you haven’t booked a DJ, we can plug any iDevice into the PA system and play your personalised playlists for you. I can also be booked to stay behind until the end after the band has finished to play your recorded playlists. I charge a small fee for this, but it’s very commonly requested. Please enquire. 

What do you require in terms of food and drink?

If only the evening band is booked, we would ask the musicians to be included in any mid-evening food. If you’ve booked musicians to play for the drinks reception or the meal prior to playing with the evening band, these musicians will have been on site many hours, so I’d request one hot meal per musician during the day in addition to the evening food.

How long does the band play for?

The evening band plays 2 x 45min sets or 1 x 90min set as standard. 

How much space do you need?

For the evening band, the 6 or 7-piece requires 5 x 3m, the 4-piece slightly less than this. We have managed to squeeze into some pretty tight spaces though!

Can I request a specific song?

Ideally we would pick from my playlist, but if your first dance isn’t there, I will learn one for you, if I feel I can do it justice! 

Do you provide all the equipment?

Yes, we bring all the instruments and full PA system. All we require from you is 1 or 2 power points. We do not carry lighting as standard. 

We only need the band to play for a short set. Will this have an impact on price?

The band isn’t paid by the hour, we are paid per performance, so reducing the performance time will not have an impact on the price. Book us for the full sets and you’ll get the best out of “The Jazz Prescription”
