We’re definitely having a jazz band!  We’re doing a cocktail reception, so we think a jazz band (a trio, due to small space) will be perfect.  We’re not worrying too much about the playlist — just asking them to stick with bebop and throw in a couple latin-influenced tunes throughout the evening in honor of our honeymoon. We’ll be asking them to learn one song that’s been important throughout our relationship, but otherwise we’re leaving it up to them.  As long as they stick primarily to bebop, it will have the “vibe” we’re going for.

We had a jazz band (piano, string bass, drums, trumpet) at our reception.  We had heard them play at our favorite restaurant a lot, so we knew most of the songs they play would be fine.  I just made sure they could play “our” song and let the band leader choose the rest!
