Q: How much space do you need?

Depending on the band configuration you choose -duo, trio, quartet, quintet- the Jacqueline Tabor Jazz Band requires a minimum performance area of 10 x 10 feet, no doorways or tripping hazards with grounded electrical outlets. If this is an outdoor event a request of shelter will be required, our equipment is very important to us and so is the safety of all that are involved in your event.


Chances are that you've already booked your venue, though before you book your entertainment we advise that you check with your venue to make sure they can accommodate live music. Some venues have volume restrictions with cut off systems, not all venues will make you aware of this when you make a booking and this can cause problems on the night with equipment being shut down during performances and sometimes a wait of up to 10 minutes before resetting.

While the band can adjust their volumes to some degree there are occasions where the venues restricted levels are too low to work within. The band needs to be informed of the venues noise code in order to respect it. Please ask your coordinator or event/venue manager and inform us when inquiring.

Q: What venues will you play?

The band will perform at a wide variety of venues from conference halls, hotels, clubs, private residences, churches, restaurants, museums, etc... Truly, wherever we can perform with room and electricity, we will be there for you. The band will also perform in marquees or outdoors, under cover, when Mother Nature allows it.

Q: Do you take song requests?

Clients are welcome to request specific songs from our current song list and the band will try to accommodate as many of these as possible. If you would like us to learn and play a song live that is not on our song list we would appreciate at least a 3-week notice.

Q: Will the band need a PA or special lighting?

The Jacqueline Tabor Jazz Band is equipped with a great Yamaha MG102C 10-Input Stereo Mixer with Compression sound system that has the capacity to compliment any size venue. And if you want special lights, let us discuss how we can make this happen.

Q: Where can I see you play?

The band can be seen live at public events throughout Seattle and the Pacific Northwest. Check out our live schedule here.

With private engagements, most hosts are uncomfortable with us inviting potential clients to their wedding or corporate function; therefore we prefer not to ask them.
