Overview

Planning a wedding, birthday party, corporate event, anniversary party, fundraiser or other celebration and in need of something that offers a bit more style than a cliche party band? Perhaps you're dreaming of a swingin' affair, a Mad Men themed bash, or a night in Vegas that your friends will be talking about for years?

The Martini Kings pride ourselves on providing you with excellent musicianship. Gimmick free and elegant, our sound creates a retro vibe that is the perfect alternative to cookie cutter cover bands.

Our versatility allows us to offer you a full range of services – from a simple duo of guitar and acoustic bass, to a seven piece deluxe arrangement that includes guitar, bass, piano, vibes, drums, saxophone and male and/or female vocalist. Our fees vary according to location, type of event, day of the week and number of musicians desired — we truly have something to fit every budget!

In addition, we can provide excellent acoustic music. We are often called upon to play at venues where amplification is neither allowed, nor desired.

And yes....we travel!
