"In addition to the requisite standards that every are common to anyone who has performed or listened to jazz, you'll hear a lot of latin & caribbean influences, funk, & blues in our music. We perform in the classical style as well for weddings and other special occasions as necessity demands. The concept behind Sonoran Jazz Project is to provide clients with customizable options when hiring a musical group. We've made a lot of outstanding musical acquaintances in our years playing together which allows us to offer a lot of options. Although we perform as a quartet by default, we can also perform as a duo, trio, or as a quintet or sextet with ease, so we have something to fit every budget. We are always modifying and extending our list of musical offerings and special requests are always welcome."
