Choosing the correct musicians and the correct combination of musicians that work well together is where my expertise and experience comes in. The musicians that I choose will also be determine by what kind of repertoire or genre of music, your event requires.

Things to consider when hiring "Jazz Band" in Malaysia

The term "Jazz band" in Malaysia and in the western countries are perceived differently. Jazz band actually means Charlie Parker, Bill Evans trio, Miles Davis, Keith Jarrett, Big band, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Bossa Novas, swing music etc

There are venues and clubs in Kuala Lumpur that take "Jazz" in it's true form e.g "No black tie", "Alexis" and "Top Hat"(No longer). There are also new clubs in Malaysia that attempts to maintain a Jazz club concept by hiring a Jazz band that plays strictly Jazz music. But after a few months, club owners will typically change their idea, realizing that there's only so much "Jazz" a general music listener can take before they "switch off" thus affecting their businesses.












There are only a handfull of Jazz fanatics that are true Jazz purist. I must admit, I'm not one of those purist. When I go watch a band, I like to hear color, a little Jazz, pop, modern and as a band manager, pianist and keyboard player, I take that same route. I like performing and listening to varied styles of music during an event.

Hence, I adopt that concept when performing for the events and functions that I undertake. I understand that most people love listening to variety. Our band perform all sorts of repertoire ranging from country, pop, latin to Jazz, retro and evergreens, to entertain listeners and entertain ourselves. I will assemble musicians in my team that have that mentality of "entertaining".









When choosing a Jazz band to hire for an event, you have to know what concept the band adopts. There are image bands that plays only Jazz, mainly for their own enjoyment, and there are corporate event bands like us that understand and play Jazz well, but also have the versatility to tackle all kinds of music. That is the edge we have over young bands fresh from a Jazz college.

Our team members have loads of performing experience having joined Jazz bands, pop bands and other genre of bands during their early years and understand the importance of providing "entertainment". We are aware of the fact that companies hire us to entertain their guest. So there must be some kind of interaction, humility, proper dress code and fulfilment of guest request to a certain extent.









When people of Malaysia are happy with the music that we provide, I feel happy and have accomplish my goal as an entertainer and a live music provider.

Search "hire live band in Kl" at Google...

Today I'm going to talk to you about searching for live music services at Google. To be able to rank high in major search engines like Google, Yahoo or MSN requires credibility. If you were to go to google.com and do a search on "hire live band kl", you will see my band website at the No 1 position out of 35,100 other music websites in Malaysia. Do take note that this search results may and will vary.

Try searching other phrases that are related to those phrases e.g jazz trio kl, jazz quartet kl, jazz musicians kl, etc and my site(www.myspace.com/JasonGeh) or my other related music
websites(www.JayLatestPerformance.blogspot.com), (www.JasonGeh.blogspot.com) will show up on the 1st page of your search i.e one of the top 10 band websites. Try searching on Yahoo and MSN and you'll notice the same results.




















There's no way I or anyone can fool Google to get rank at the top, only if Google considers your site relevant and credible.I'm not saying this to show off but merely to determine that the live band services that I provide is not a "fly by night" thing and you, as the client will be dealing with me and my team who are music professionals and have been in the music entertainment in Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur for decades.

It has took us a lifetime of dedication in music to get to the level we're at. We're talking about years and years of performing experiences and being in the music scene.










At the moment, we're concentrating more on supplying music bands for corporate events. Yes, we're a function band, made up of local musicians and singers that also perform for wedding receptions, parties, concerts, product launches, anniversaries and any other functions that can be thought of. In fact we have performed in so many weddings that we're sometimes labelled wedding entertainers, wedding musicians, wedding music bands, to just name a few.

Watch some introductory videos about me on my band website. To book a band, contact me at JasonGeh@yahoo.com or 016 2800 216
