The Dallas-Fort Worth-based Justin Pierce Jazz Group can also vary in size to accommodate the size and budget of your event. Saxophone and piano provide an intimate, relaxed setting for the evening for a small rehearsal dinner or get together at your home. For a wedding reception, corporate party, or Christmas party, the full jazz group, complete with vocals, piano, bass, and drums will keep them dancing all night!
If you live in Houston, Austin, or Oklahoma City, the Justin Pierce Jazz Band is willing to travel up to 500 miles from the Dallas-Fort Worth area to make your event swing!
