Imagine, a night out at The Cotton Club, dressed in tux, tails and furs. It’s New York, 1939, the era of the big bands. The stage is loaded with a grand piano, 5 saxes, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, an upright bass, guitar, drums and a lovely lady singer. You take your escort by the hand, and step out into the crowded dance floor, you spirits lifted by the music, practically floating.

Perfect for a “Great Gatsby,” “Casino Royal,” or “USO Show” theme party. Any time you want very classy and exciting entertainment.

We cover it all, from a quiet cocktail hour quartet to an elegant evening of ballroom dancing: Charleston, Waltz, Foxtrot, Tango, Rumba, Jump, even Cha Cha Cha. Perfect for weddings, receptions, parties, festivals and corporate events.

We can dress jazz-festival casual to tux-&-tails formal. We happily accommodate special requests, and can plan a show that they’ll be talking about for years. Call us to explore alternate configurations, from cool quartet to a full-size Jazz Orchestra.

Our fees include travel, booking fees, and even our own PA system, saving you hundreds of dollars.
