Very talented band! They played for an outdoor wedding reception which I was the Event Planner for. Mike was prompt in responding to emails and phone calls. A pleasure to work with. Guests of all ages loved the music!
I hired the Quartet to play at my wedding a few months ago. The were superb, really complemented the event, and were reasonably priced. I'd recommend them in a heartbeat!
We hired Connecticut Jazz Events for a xmas party at my house last December. They were nothing short of excellent - all the guests loved them! They really helped make it a fun night.
We hired the Connecticut Jazz Events' Sax & Guitar duo for our annual company dinner this past November and they were great! They were just what we were looking for- an elegant, classy mix of jazz standards. Very easy to work with - will be hiring them again next year!
CT Jazz Events were reasonably priced, professionally organized and were an outstanding addition to our fundraiser. as part of our 75th Anniversary, we hoped to elevate the event's stature, and Mike's talent's added to the elevation seemlessly. Thank you Connecticut Jazz Events!
I hired the sax/bass/drums trio for my father's birthday party a few months ago (He LOVES jazz standards). Connecticut Jazz Events exceeded my expectations - they were simply amazing and added a very classy ambiance to the event. Guests were raving about the music all night long!
The jazz music that Connecticut Jazz Events provided really made my wedding. We hired them to play for the cocktail hour and the dinner hour. The music was spectacular! I heard compliments from guests all night about how nice the music was. They can even take requests for popular jazz standards on the fly. I can't recommend them enough!
You know, I've hired other jazz bands in the past for various events I've been involved in planning (whether it was a friend's wedding, my parent's anniversary, or the office Christmas Party), but Connecticut Jazz Events really takes the cake. While they were slightly more expensive than other jazz bands I've used in the past, these guys were all top-notch professional musicians. They looked great, sounded great, were easy to work with, not too loud, and really complemented the event, rather than overshadowed it. 5/5!
I hired the www.ConnecticutJazzEvents.com Sax/Piano/Bass/Drums Quartet for my parents' anniversary a few months ago, and they sounded amazing! Some of the best classic, swinging, soulful jazz tunes I've ever heard. They were a perfect compliment to our event - they played great, were professional and communicative throughout the whole booking process, and were worth every penny! I'd recommend them in a heartbeat!
We recently hired a jazz trio to play at our post-holiday company party in early January at the Bond Ballroom in Hartford. The members of the trio were professional and accommodating and played music that was highly complimentary to our event. I would recommend them for anyone who wants smooth jazz played in the background of a corporate or social event.
Response from Connecticut Jazz Events:
Thanks so much Marcia!
We hired the Sax/Piano duo for a wedding reception back in September 2012 and they were great! I can't say enough about them - they were on time, played great, well mannered, well dressed, and genuinely great to deal with. I would highly recommend Connecticut Jazz Events for your next event.
Response from Connecticut Jazz Events:
Thanks Jerry! Congrats again!
