Holiday party hit!

We had a trio from the Justin Pierce Jazz Group play at our company holiday party. They were a huge hit of the evening, playing a mixture of holiday and jazz tunes.

The Justin Pierce band did a fabulous job! We had a detailed awards night banquet with a script and specific details. The Justin Pierce band knew exactly what to play on cue. They were sharp and diligent in their performance and a great addition for our awards night.

Outstanding Wedding Reception

The Justin Pierce band made our wedding reception even more memorable. They added a sincere touch of class and sophistication to the event. Our wedding was held in a historic building and the music played complimented the venue. The guests were all at ease and mentioned how the music brought back great memories for them.
Justin communicates very well with clients before and after signing a contract. We requested a county music song to be played as our last song. They happily honored the request as well perform the song beautifully. Justin met with me two weeks before the wedding to review details. His professionalism put my mind at ease. On the day of the wedding, everyone arrived on time and dressed appropriately. My husband and I will look back and remember what a great time our family and friends had as they danced the night away. It was worth every penny.

Classic, Fun, Fantastic!

I had the pleasure of having the Justin Pierce Jazz Group play at a New Orleans-themed cooking demo at the event facility I manage. Not only did they arrive on time and completely prepared to perform, they gave one of the best jazz sets I've seen.

We had the four-piece band with drums, sax/clarinet, keys, and bass. Next time, we definitely would opt for the singer just because if they are that good with instruments only, I can only imagine the show they can do with vocals as well.

This group would be phenominal for any reception, wedding, dinner party, or just for fun! The smooth jazz they played made it extra easy for our guests to just sip on their cocktails and enjoy the night! Thanks so much to the Justin Pierce Jazz Group!

Great sax player & always reliable!

We've hired Justin on a number of occasions to play solo sax for customers in our retail area. We always have received great feedback from shoppers/diners and he really adds to the atmosphere of the neighborhood!

Justin is a very talented player and a pleasure to work with!

Great Experience--Very Accommodating

We had the Justin Pierce Band at our wedding and they were great. Very talented and everyone loved listening to them. The band was so accommodating; they jumped through hoops that my venue asked of them and also played back-up to my husband's dad as he played a song on his trumpet for us.

I highly recommend the Justin Pierce Band.

Grand Re-Opening

I can't thank Justin and his group enough for the amazing job they did for our Grand Re-Opening. They were flexible, helpful and did great at communicating with me leading up to the event (which I've learned is sometimes rare with other entertainers I've hired). I will definately keep their information on file and book them again in the future!

Professional Talent!

The Justin Pierce Jazz Group recently performed at our daughter's wedding reception. We were absolutely overjoyed by their performance during the reception! Not only were they very professional in their performance, it was obvious they are gifted artists and musicians as well. They performed an amazing selection of jazz, big band, and blues music throughout the evening, and it was quite evident it was enjoyed and appreciated by all those in attendance. We were a little nervous, as this was our first experience in hirinig a professional band, and I am so thankful that we chose the Justin Pierce Jazz Group to work wtih. Mr. Pierce is very accommodating - we will definitely hire them should the occasion arise! Thank you, Justin and band, for making this a night our daughter and her new husband will remember forever!

Simply Wonderful Jazz!

The Justin Pierce Group has performed the last years for our annual Mardi Gras fund raiser. Both times, their performance was outstanding! What a great group of people to work with and an extremely talented and professional group of indiviuals. Justin even let one of our varsity players sit in on a number and he was completely thrilled to play with such professionals. It made his night! Highly recommend them for any event. We will definately use them again. Thanks Justin for a great performance:)

Amazing!!!

Thank you so much for playing during the cocktail hour at our wedding. We only wish that we would have had more time to enjoy your music ourselves. If we are ever in need of a band again, we will surely hire again! Also, we hire 4 music groups for our wedding to play at different times. You are the ONLY one that contacted me afterwards to thank me for my business. That alone speaks volume of your professionalism and care for your clients. Thanks again!!!

So happy we went with this musician!

Justin Pierce did a really great job at our son's rehearsal dinner at Sky Creek Ranch in Keller Texas this July/2011. We went with the two piece group and and enjoyed wonderful music for hours. Justin gave us a very competitive price and we were blown away that the talent level was so high. The night would not have been the same without the live music. Justin is easy going and aims to please and I appreciate a talented musician and good businessman. The music was happy , jazzy and classy yet fun!

The Justin Pierce Band did a great job at my wedding reception. I told them that I wanted a retro, Frank Sinatra era sound and they were able to play lots of songs that fit my theme. They also took requests to play other songs that weren't on their main song list. They are a great choice for a wedding reception!

It has always been an absolute delight to work with Justin and his band. I have been fortunate enough to book them for 2 different venues and they have never once been anything less than pure professionals. From laid back wallpaper jazz to playing some of your favorites and even letting audience members sit in on occasion, shows their adaptability and commitment to keeping the crowd happy. I'm personally a bit sad that they have moved a bit too far away to book them much these days, but they do come with my absolute highest recommendation and my utmost respect.
