You’ll often hear us harping* on about sound limits at venues and how you can still book great acts without overstepping the decibel mark - but here’s a particularly good example of an act working within the requirements of a venue without losing anything from their performance. The video above features our Jazz Ensemble The Toni Trio performing at the London Transport Museum – a venue where a sound limit is enforced due to nearby neighbours.
When most people hear that there’s a sound limit in place at a venue – the first thing they decide to cut is usually the drummer; drums – after all – are loud. Or at least they are when you hit them hard. One of the things we’re always trying to convince clients, is that good musicians know how to control every part of their performance, including their volume - this applies to drummers just as much as trumpeters or saxophonists. The Toni Trio are a London based Jazz band lead by percussionist Ricardo Toni and they’re dab hands at providing smooth, sophisticated background jazz at corporate events and weddings. This means they’re not only good at doing all those “fiddly bits”** that everyone loves, but they’re also sensitive musicians able to play to suit a mood or, in this case decibel limit.
We’ve got more info on decibel limits on our handy post called “How Loud is a Function Band?” and more information on booking any of our brilliant Jazz Bands for upcoming corporate events, private parties or weddings, head over to our contact page and get in touch.
*That’s an entertainment joke.
** That’s a technical term
