This quintet is perfect for grad parties, church events, Bar Mitzvahs, birthday parties, corporate events and more! We are a high school jazz combo consisting of some of the best young jazz musicians in the area, and primarily feature a trumpet, trombone, piano, bass, and drummer. Allow us to set the mood for your event with chill and groovy Latin, upbeat and active swing, and smooth and mellow ballads. We are more than happy to perform either as background music or on the center stage of your event. We are also open to listening to customer requests and doing the absolute best we can to honor them. Choose Benchmark Jazz!
The College Club of Cincinnati enjoyed a delightful and entertaining performance by the Benchmark Jazz group from Lakota East High School. They were certainly into their music, and we were very impressed with the boys. Loads of talent in that group! So good to see positive teenagers reaching out to the community and going beyond the norm with their own improvisations.
Price Range: $50-$500
Gig Length: 30 - 120 minutes
