Have you ever attended a wedding where a jazz piano trio performed? If you haven’t, you’ve missed out on something truly extraordinary, but you can still experience it for your wedding.
This week, we’re going to list out a few essential reasons why you should book a jazz piano trio for your 2022 wedding.!
- Jazz Piano Trios Will Create an Intimate Atmosphere
This is perhaps the most obvious advantage of having a trio instead of a soloist or a singer. While it might be nice to have your friend sing you a song, the fact is that you will be able to “connect” much better with a piano trio than with any other option.
Imagine how it would feel: just the three of you in the middle of an empty dance floor. The spotlight shines on the pianist, the bass player starts his groove, and the drummer joins in.
The music is all about you. There is no one else here (and even if there is someone else, they will probably feel like dancing anyway). This will create an unforgettable atmosphere that your guests won’t soon forget.
- Jazz Piano Trios Allow For Some “Customizing”
Depending on the kind of trio you book, you will be able to set the tone of your wedding in various ways. For example, if you book a traditional jazz trio, this will give you swing jazz music that can evoke memories of the days of yore.
This is also true for gypsy jazz ensembles, although the mood will be slightly different. And if you book a strings trio, this can create a very elegant and romantic atmosphere.
- Having A Piano Adds Variety To The Music Selection
As mentioned above, having a “big band” does not necessarily guarantee that you’ll have more flexibility in terms of musical styles played at your wedding; the opposite may be true.
This is especially true if you want to have a “fusion” wedding, where many different genres are mixed (jazz, rock, folk music, for example).
In this case, having a piano trio will allow you to extract some songs from your playlist that would otherwise not fit the other instruments very well.
For example, you can book a jazz trio for your wedding, then ask them to play the usual swing/early jazz standards. But ensure they know how to play some certain songs you might like on your wedding day.
As you can see, there are many good reasons why hiring a jazz piano trio is the best choice if you want to have live jazz at your wedding. From variety to flexibility in styles, having a trio instead of a larger band can make all the difference at your wedding.
