Find New York jazz groups for your wedding reception, fundraiser, private party or corporate event. Whether you are looking for a jazz trio, jazz quartet, or jazz quintet, you can instantly view professionally-produced videos of real working NYC jazz groups for hire that feature piano, guitar, vibraphone, saxophone, or jazz or Brazilian vocalist as the lead instrument depending on your preference. Each group has its own unique personnel, style and repertoire, and is comprised of great New York City jazz musicians who have been performing together for many years. Our music serves an ambient function extremely well, but it is the exact opposite of "elevator music"; it is real jazz that will compliment your event perfectly.

We can accommodate requests for any Great American Songbook standards by composers such as Richard Rodgers, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Antonio Carlos Jobim, etc. And, in addition to these, because all of my groups are real working jazz groups (as opposed to the pickup bands most bandleaders assemble for private events), each of my groups also brings its own unique repertoire of more-challenging and less-common music that is custom-tailored to its particular instrumentation, style, and personnel.
SAMPLE THANK YOU NOTE:
Thank you so much for playing at our wedding and helping in making it such a beautiful event.
When we were looking for music for our event, we were disappointed to meet with "professional" music producers who offer "jazz bands" which are so remote from the spirit of jazz. So we were looking for something better. The other choice was to try and speak with some performers at a Jazz club and see whether they could come. The risk was, however, that one never really knows how well such players would adjust to a wedding event, that requires not only a great vibe, but also someone who is reliable, attentive to details, and respectful of the occasion.
When we saw your website we knew immediately we came to the right place. The site gives a very clear view of the options one has, the quality of the music and seriousness in which you take this project. The preparations for the event were great - everything went smooth, and we were happy to see you arriving at the place prior to the event in order to make sure you understand everything. At the same time, the band adjusted itself to the place, its acoustic and vibe and allowed those who wanted to, to listen to a very high level of performance, while others - who wanted to speak with their friends at the table - could still do so without feeling overwhelmed by the music. Most importantly, the music was fabulous.
In short - a great experience which we highly recommend those who'd like to celebrate an event with a wonderful balance of real jazz, and the elegance and high seamless performance that an event such as a wedding entails.
We'd be happy to recommend you to anyone. Feel free to put such inquirers in touch with us via my email.
