We were so happy we came across Charlotte and her band, Jazzlab. They are an exceptionally talented band with a great repertoire of songs which suited all our guests. They managed to lift the mood, get everyone onto the dance floor and also play beautiful background music when required. We were most thrilled that they could perform horas which got everyone spinning on the dance floor and was the highlight of the night. Charlotte has a stunning voice which is made even more special by the accompanying instruments. Thank you!

Our Team Profiles

Shami Marandawela
Name

Shami Marandawela

Position

Guitar and AV Production

Profile

Shami Marandawela's early playing was influenced by the 70's and 80's funk & gospel styles, but after many years of exploring sound and style, he has added the rich textures and complexities of jazz and blues. Drawing from classic jazz influences such as Wes Montgomery and George Benson, combined with the current day blues players as John Mayer and BB King, Shami's playing is colourful, melodic and especially soulful. After completing a degree in Engineering and Computing from Melbourne's Monash University, he relocated to Sydney and continued his passion for music by studying music at the Sydney Conservatory Jazz program and still continues to be influenced by the wonderful Steve Brien. In performance, the charisma, humour and stage presence of Shami’s style are a part of his appeal as a musician, as is his ever expanding technical skill and command of the guitar.

Testimonials

Please note that the following testimonials are collected, supplied and maintained by JazzLab.

Wilsom , HTM Corporate Function
You and your band are very talented and professional individuals and provided the perfect ambience to suit our function and venue. Everyone including our management and clients were impressed, with lots of glowing comments about you.
Audience Member , The Manly Fig
I saw you tonight at the Manly Fig event, and wanted to say how blown away I was by you guys. You were brilliant. I loved every second of it. Your Gershwin/Jackson thing was fantastic; “Mas Que Nada” is one of my fave songs ever, and “Isn’t She Lovely” – and the introduction you gave it – were a show stopper. I’d never been to the Fig before – wasn’t expecting much – so to be so taken with you guys was a lovely surprise. My feet are still tapping (and its hours later now). Thank you.
Integrated Group LTD ,
Thank you so much to the Charlotte Jane band for providing our Christmas Party with fantastic music, you really set the mood for the evening it was beautiful. Everyone had a great night and the band played a major part in that. We look forward to having you at future functions of Integrated. Thanks again.
Bride , Wandin Valley Estate
We chose Charlotte Jane’s band for our wedding after seeing them play at Jazushi and Star City. Their ability to play a number of genres works perfectly for a wedding where you need to please so many different people! Charlotte’s violin playing also adds a real unique flavour to their performance. On the day we didn’t need to worry about a thing. They matched the music perfectly to the mood and ambience of the occasion, building the tempo throughout and ensuring the dance floor was rocking by the end. We received many compliments from our guests and would strongly recommend Charlotte for your next event.
Bride , The Bather's Pavilion
We would like to thank you and the band so much for your fantastic performance at our wedding reception at The Bathers’ Pavilion. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music and the lively atmosphere you created and we have had requests for your contact details
Bride , Aria Restaurant
We had Charlotte Jane perform and I just wanted to take a moment to say how absolutely perfect they were and how talented this duo is; the mood, song list and their appearance / presentation was incredible and I would strongly recommend them for any cocktail event… please pass on our sincere thanks and highest compliments as they were without a doubt the perfect performers for our wedding.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I confirm a date in the band's calender?

A 25% deposit is required to secure your date in The Charlotte Jane band's diary.

As much as we would love to accomodate all enquiries, we often receive more enquiries for bookings than we are able to perform at, so it is only fair that we operate on a 'first in first served' basis.

How much does it cost to use The Charlotte Jane Band?

The cost is dictated by a number of variables. These include:

  • The length of the function
  • The location of the venue
  • The size of the band required
  • The AV production required.

The easiest way for us to tailor a quote for you is to contact us. www.charlottejane.com/contact

How much space does the band require?

The space depends on the band size.

The duo package can be fully set up in a space as small as 2m x 2m which includes all sound and lighting production.

The full band which is generally made up of a 5-piece band plus AV production, can be in a space as small as 3 m x 3m.

This includes Drums, Bass(upright and/or electric), Guitar, Keyboard and vocals. The full band uses the space as required meaning; the band is equally comfortable playing on a stage at the Acer Arena as well as in a small cafe.

Having played at most conference and reception venues acrros Sydney and the Hunter Valley, we have experience in working with the limitation of space. We encourage you therfore to speak to us so that we can give insight on the entertainment package to make the event a success.
