WHERE DO WE PERFORM?

Anywhere. We can set up in any location. Places we have performed: On boats,  by swimming pools, in  malls, at convention centres, in banquet halls, in bars, in stadiums, in board rooms, at funerals, birthdays, on stairways, in foyers, lobbies and hallways. In presentation rooms and on beaches. for anniversaries, retirement parties, product launches, festivals and fair grounds, for weddings, bar mitzvahs and just about anything you can imagine. We've done it all! We can perform unplugged but I recommend that there be a power source.

DINING ESTABLISHMENTS

Live dinner jazz or cocktail jazz are fantastic additions to any dining experience. There is something magical about the energy in the room when live music is being performed. It will enhance your customer's experience. It is not a "concert" setting and so our function is not to grandstand or monopolize anyone's attention. We provide ambiance, subtle energy and a warmt, tasteful backdrop for your patrons that they willl remember. We fill the silences in their conversation. We want them to return again, and tell others about the special time they had at your location experiencing live music which is all too rare in this digital age.
