We're Jazz Musicians, But We Don't Just "Wing-It."
That's why I work hard to select the best repertoire, create interesting and unique arrangements, and hire amazing performers who love the music. Here's what else you can expect...
- No awkward silences: we come prepared with a well-balanced set list (list of songs to play, in order) to avoid the inevitable 3-minute discussions between each song about what song we'll play next and how to play it.
- More of your favorite songs per set: In addition to being more organized with our set lists, we do shorter, more compact arrangements so you can hear more of your favorite songs per set.
- Professional Quality Sound. In addition to our talented musicians--each of whom are artists in their own right--I've learned from experience that bringing my own professional audio engineer and equipment is critical to ensuring the band always sounds great, is properly balanced, EQ'd properly, and that the sound levels are appropriate for the event. (This is something many other bands of this type don't put enough focus on.)
- Professional vibes. We take seriously the importance of showing up on time, being dressed appropriately for the event, being ready to entertain, and also refraining from alcohol while we're working.
