LA Jazz Piano Trio

Book The Los Angeles Jazz Trio, one of our most popular size bands. This jazz piano trio is best for an intimate setting such as a corporate event, private party, wedding reception, wedding ceremony, or any type of event that requires soft background music. Extremely versatile, this band can play all styles from swing standards, latin, salsa, and smooth jazz, to cover band dance tunes. Please call us for more info.

LA Jazz Guitar Trio

Sample of the Los Angeles Jazz Guitar Trio, a classic combination of guitar, bass, and saxophone. They play anything from swing to modern jazz and smooth jazz as well as dance covers. Ideal for a cocktail hour and extremely pleasant for background music. Please call us for more info.

LA Jazz Quartet

Adding drums to your instrumental or vocal jazz ensemble brings a new dimension to the music. Drums make all of the rhythms more catchy and danceable. Guests can samba, swing and even salsa dance when there’s a drum beat keeping tempo. If you prefer the music to be quiet and stay in the background, the drummer will use brushes so you can have the flavor and fullness of this additional instrument without interfering with conversation. Please call us for more info.

Smooth LA Jazz Band

Our Smooth LA Jazz Bands work best as a quartet or larger and can play a variety of music including classic jazz, latin jazz, pop, R&B and smooth jazz. This is a sample of the Smooth Jazz Quartet playing standards for background music. Call us for samples and pricing. Please call us for more info.

Solo & Duo LA Jazz Musicians

For intimate gatherings, sometimes it’s best to have a solo musician or duo. This way, the music never overtakes the conversation. And this is when the quality of the musicians you hire is particularly important, for it’s when their ability to blend, to play tastefully, and to keep the energy up even while playing softly is really tested. We choose with whom we work with because we care and because we understand what it takes to get the right effect. Please call us for more info.

LA Jazz Vocalists

Jazz Vocalists offer a classy touch to just about any setting. Whether you’re looking for something more upbeat, danceable and interactive or perhaps a softer more subtle vibe, a vocalist adds an unmistakable human element to the mix while engaging your guests’ appeal for entertainment. This group can features a choice of a sultry female vocalist reminiscent of Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday or the popular male Sinatra-esque Crooner style. Ranging in size from a subtle solo/duo to a full big band with horns, vocal groups offer a versatile mix of Jazz Swing, Latin, Big band and R&B Jazz. Please call us for more info.
