Thanks for your band inquiry and supporting live music. We would love to play for you!
All musicians and bands are not created equally. While some offer very inexpensive services, there are a number of key factors you should take into account. This may likely be the first time you’ve hired a band and picking the right one on-line can be quite challenging especially when they will be performing for your family and friends.
“These guys are just amazing. Versatile, pro and great people to work with.” Alex Lifeson/RUSH
Here’s a great checklist for your reference to confirm with any band you hire.
- Will the band play what you asked them to play or only what they know
- Will they learn songs you asked them to learn
- Will they promptly return emails and phone calls with changes or amendments to your plans
- Will they be courteous and respectful to your guests especially since they have microphones.
- Do they have testimonials you can cross reference
- Will they provide comprehensive liability insurance in the event they are responsible for any damages
- Is there more than one singer in case the one singer in the band is ill (especially these days)
- Do they play more than one style
- Do they provide a full production system including everything required for power, sound and/or lighting or is there an additional fee
- Do they have an extensive and broad spectrum song list to suit a wider age demographic if need be
- Do they have years of experience playing at private events and have the ability to change things up if needed (song choices are not going over, band is too loud, a guest shouts out a request, Uncle Bill wants to get up and sing a song etc.) or are they strictly a bar/club band and not used to “moving parts”
“Amazing musicians and such a pleasure to work with. Absolutely Pro!” Diana Krall
We appreciate and respect that your paid fee is an investment to ensure perfection with no grey areas. You want great. We get it.
"They can adapt to any situation and they know EVERY song!" Tyler Stewart/Barenaked Ladies

Shiraz and his team of amazing musicians are what a great party needs. I have had Shiraz at my home 3 times for work and family parties and it has been just an amazing experience. The down to earth approach and the willingness to get everyone involved in singing turns a good party into an amazing party. I consider Shiraz to be a good friend now and always sing his praises to my network. When this Covid crap is over, I know he is on my list of people to reconnect with.
Shiraz and the Jade Monkeys are top notch. Absolute pleasure to deal with and highly recommend. They played at our 2020 fall wedding and everyone still talks about what a great job they did. They’ve done many other weddings that I’ve been to (all referrals!) and it’s always a great party Thanks again!
Have had Shiraz and his Jade Monkeys play at several private events.....they were first class and everyone had a great time.They have a huge repertoire ...very talented musicians that keep the event fun and lively all night long.....highly recommend them.
The Jade Monkeys made it up to our cottage, and rocked it our for an awesome night of fun musical entertainment! Great talent, great guys and great energy. They're real pros who know how to keep the dance floor full. No hesitation to strongly recommend them to anyone interested - they delivered big time.
Our 25th anniversary work party would not have been the same without Shiraz and his very professional and fun band. They played all of my favorites and got everyone up on the dance floor. They even let me get up to play a couple of tunes, rekindling my dream to be a rock star!!!
