We wanted a small but good jazz band to play at our wedding on 2/15/14. We got that with this group. The venue was a small restaurant in Wixom where we had the place to ourselves and about 90 friends joined us for the mid day reception. Event Jazz were all set up and playing when the guests arrived to start the festivities with drinks and appetizers. As we moved into the restaurant area and everyone was settled, Event Jazz moved too into the open foyer area for all to hear their music while we ate. Their music was excellent and diversified. There was the bass player, a pianist, a horn, and a drummer. The music was easy listening as we'd requested. Several of our guests comments how great it was to have live music and not a DJ. Just what we wanted.
Response from Event Jazz:
Thank you, Edie!
Really nice and professional. Rob organized a great event though he could not perform himself. It was a nice selection and everyone enjoyed at our event.
Response from Event Jazz:
It was our pleasure to serve you!
American songbook, jazz standards...all played with musical expertise. Great bass, drums, piano, horn, and more! Great to work with. If you need really good musicians, these are your guys!
Rob was very easy to work with while setting up and staying flexible with our outdoor event. He brought a trio (bass, keyboard, drums) and played upbeat standards to put a nice flare on our company party. I got lots of compliments on the music throughout the night!
(this is my first time to host an event like this,so my star reviews are a best guess compared to what else might be out there)
Response from Event Jazz:
This was a fun event! We played to a nice backyard setting providing an even mix of standards old and new. This is the kind of service that you can expect with Event Jazz!

"The clients of Hillside Terrace love the cool sounds of the 'Hits of Broadway' group, and enjoy singing along to hits of that golden era."
“Straight ahead joy! Swinging and soulful, Event Jazz serves up fresh, sumptuous interpretations of the American songbook that will move your feet, and your heart.”
"Kerrytown Shops brings in performers during the holidays to make the hustle & bustle more enjoyable and as unique as Kerrytown. Event Jazz's holiday repertoire and professional showmanship delivered that and more! We're looking forward to bringing them back again!"
“Event Jazz is great! Rob was extremely easy to work with and responsive during the booking process, the performers were on time, professional, and extremely flexible the night of the event (the schedule was changing minute by minute!), and the group’s performance was incredible. Event Jazz is an extremely talented, professional company to work with, and I would highly recommend them!”
"I was planning an ABC meeting ( Association of Bridal Consultants) and knew that he would be a perfect fit for our venue and meeting. We had Event Jazz playing as our guests arrived and ate dinner. They were playing outside on the patio, and everything was perfect. All of the guests enjoyed listening to them ,and it was the perfect background music for guests to to enjoy the music but still be able to talk. I would highly recommend Rob from Event Jazz for your next event. They are very professional!"
"Since the moment you guys started playing it became evident your performance was what made the event a real memorable time. I have family and friends asking throughout the reunion where I have found you because they enjoyed so much the music selection and your performance. You are professional and talented musicians. I would not hesitate recommending you for any event."
"Rob Crozier and his group recently performed at our facility to a full house of Independent Residents who happen to be jazz aficionados. The band mostly performed hits from the Broadway era, and played them so well that as I looked around the room, I could see the audience members nodding their heads to the beat, tapping their feet and singing along. It is heartening for them to experience a young group of musicians who take seriously and perform with such feeling the tunes that bring them back to their era, one rich with happy memories. Many regretfully expressed that they only wish they could still dance as they used to! I would not hesitate to book them again as soon as my performance schedule opens, which will be after the new year begins. I realize that they also play at local venues, and plan to catch one of their gigs soon."
"I'm an event planner and manage a great restaurant in downtown Ann Arbor. I have a great ear for music and supporting the local scene here known for outstanding bands rooting from Ann Arbor. My staff, guests, and I were overly please with his great performance. I highly recommend booking this band for any occasion.
