Accessible. Musical. Variety.
We typically open our set with upbeat, sophisticated, soulful jazz standards, and mix in latin and pop arrangements for variety, with the right balance between fast and slow arrangements, as well as latin styles if appropriate, we also like to perform contemporary/ pop funky jazz arrangements, typically in the last set. Our jazz musicians are established, reliable pros you can trust for your event.
