All members of Jazz Over Easy are University educated music teachers. Our influences and tastes are broad.
Because we have been exposed to--and performed--vast styles and genres of music in college, please, consider that we can learn SPECIAL REQUESTS, as well as include SPECIAL GUESTS to play or SING with our group.

We only require one outlet for electricity to the bass and guitar amplifiers.
If lighting is not provided, we use our own stand lights. We can perform (and have) in the dark.
Our physical arrangement is SMALL.
Often we have fit in an area approximately 12' x 12' (The stage area at Vintage Wine Bar in Old Mesilla)
Requests for SPECIAL EVENTS have called for us to create medleys (Military Branches' Anthems, for example), as well as to arrange full song-sets (like Dixieland music for Mardi Gras).
We often play a large selection of Jazz Standards (up to 5 hours). We play HOLIDAY music too (for example, Christmas Songs).
