People don’t like to talk about funerals and that’s totally understandable. However, they happen to us all! Some people even go as far as planning for their own funeral. Many more at least make sure that the occasion isn’t a financial burden on others. But, we’d all agree, it is important to give our loved ones, family and friends a fitting send off. There’s one great way to do this: hire a funeral jazz band.
