JetBlacq provides sophisticated, upscale and entertaining background or featured music during any type of event or party. We have experience performing in an intimate cabaret setting, nightclub, outdoor festivals or corporate event. JetBlacq musicians are seasoned, well-trained, world-travelled musicians with a unique individual flair for the genre of music we provide, which is quite varied. From Sinatra to Winehouse, we can croon any tune and offer electric dance music as well. From a small trio to a larger orchestra with brass and percussion, JetBlacq swings and jives! Rebecca, the lead vocalist, comes out of the San Francisco cabaret and comedy scene and offers delightful, sexy banter along with her husband "Frank" whose authentic Italian flair delivers Sinatra and other mixed genres of delicious jazzy tunes to rival Michael Buble. Brian Cook on keyboards has backed up the likes of Chet Baker and many famous jazz greats. He is also an instructor and arranger. Fred Randolph plays ecstatic bass both plucking and bowing depending upon the tune! We look fabuous and sound even better! Most folks are surprised we're not touring, but staying close to home in the San Francisco bay area with full lives has been our choice. Book "JetBlacq" and folks will be pleased beyond belief...we promise!
