Wedding Receptions Music

"We asked La Jinza to see if they could provide some great jazz/latin flavoured live music for our wedding reception - drums, base, guitar, singer, keys... even horns if we needed. As it turned out we wanted the latin flavour specifically because our bridal waltz was a salsa number. La Jinza said they could even do a cover of the number we were going to salsa to!

They provided a cool groovy dinner and cocktail jazz sound and then got the whole reception up and dancing afterwards once the formalities had finished. Having a live band with such a great sound, vibe and look made for just an awesome night. Would love to have them in my lounge room 24*7!"

"We asked Dave Halls to put together a band for our daughter's wedding and he did this with great professionalism. We were very happy with the professionalism and style his band added to our occasion."
Jean Ashton 

Events Dinner Music

"I asked Dave Halls to provide a band for our annual dinner, held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. He put together a band that was not only groovy, but very cool. Everyone loved the choice of music during the dinner set because it created the right vibe. Then, when it got to the after-dinner dance set, the music really got the guests dancing. I appreciated the band's professionalism and ability to deliver what it promised."
Michael Bull
