Christmas, And All That Jazz Jazzy Christmas Entertainment Ideas!

Jazz up your Christmas with one of our many different kinds of jazz band! We've got everything from Cuban and New Orleans style jazz bands to Big Band jazz and everything in between!

If you fancy fighting off the relentless march of Christmas music, we've got a suggestion. Book a flight to Cuba for the Havana Jazz Festival, which runs during mid-December. It's a chance to experience some of the best Cuban jazz musicians in action, plus international guests including Britain's Sandy Shore, playing in a no-doubt authentic smoky atmosphere.

On the other hand, save yourself a packet and hold your own jazz or Cuban themed party right here at home. The perfect antidote to Slade / Wizzard / Wings / George Michael overkill!

Here's our pick of the top Cuban bands and jazz bands for hire here at Alive Network.
