Wonderful to Work With!

Jim and his band members were wonderful to work with from start to finish! He was extremely professional in both our many emails back and forth as well as onsite. He was able to answer any questions we had and made sure that our event went off without a hitch. Along with his professionalism, the music was fantastic and enjoyed by all! We are located in DC, but if we are in the area again for another event, we will be sure to contact them! I would definitely recommend Slammer Jazz!

Excellent Musical Entertainment

I recently heard the Slammer Jazz Quartet at both the Jazz on the Monon Series and the Carmel Arts Festival. They provided excellent musical entertainment with a wide variety of "oldies but goodies" songs. Jim displays his talent by playing several instruments and his daughter, Heidi, is a great vocalist. I would highly recommend them to play for any future event.

Great Sound!

Slammer Jazz was very accomodating with all of my requests before the concert. The residents enjoyed the music and asked for us to have them back again in the future. Thanks Slammer Jazz!
