Great musical talent and a lovely personality!
Thank you Geno for proving the live entertainment. The band with Earl and the crew was everything. My family and friends had a wonderful time! See you soon!
The band did exceptionally well. Everyone enjoyed them and some asked for their contact information to book for a later event. Big kudos to them!!!!
Geno was delightful and entertaining. My guest truly enjoyed his smooth tunes and voice throughout the night. His personable touch really set off the party! He ensured the guest of honor was pampered with music she loved and invited guest to sing a tune! The evening was perfect with Geno going above and beyond all night curating a wonderful intimate live music experience. Bonus, Geno responded to my request in seconds! He also did a thorough intake of what I wanted and exceeded the expectation! I cant wait until our next event with him! Thanks Again Geno!
Words cannot express how dynamic and engaging the band was throughout our event. The music was delivered with perfection. Every member of the band ultimate professionals. Geno Marriott is one of a kind; absolutely love him and the Spirit of Jazz. A must for all special occasions.
Geno and his band were superb! They really elevated our event and made it even more memorable! Geno is so personable and made booking a band easy and seamless. Without even mentioning it, he took care of transitions during our event and kept our family truly entertained and engaged. Harmony was impressive and a power house singer. The band members were so professional and worked so cohesively. Geno also helped us with our audio/mic needs for our special performances and was there to take in any cues from me when needed. Geno and team, thank you so much for your sharing your talent! We look forward to booking more events with Geno and the band!!
These guys are amazing. I never imagined my husband 40th bday party to be so epic. They are the icing on the cake. They came through with all the hits. Most importantly they gave it their all. The way they played it moved you. You could not stay in your seat. Everyone that came had a wonderful time. My father in law danced so hard he broke the soles from his shoes. They will definitely be performing at my next event. Thank you you guys you all are top notch. We love you all❤
I don't even know where to begin. I read the reviews like everyone else but the reviews really don't do them justice, these guys are one of the best acts out here. When I tell you everybody asked for their cards and information EVERYBODY asked for their info. From the beginning to the end it was a wonderful experience. Geno has a special way of making people feel like family. The kids loved him and that's usually hard because they are particular when it comes to music lol The dress code was all white and they came dressed to impress. They did a couple of special requests at the party and didn't miss a beat! We had a great time. If you are debating rather or not you should plan your event around their schedule, don't think about it anymore. Change the date and wait to be entertaining royally! They were not available on my original date for the housewarming so we pushed it back to make sure they would be there and I'm so glad we waited the extra time. Book Geno Marriott & The Spirit of Jazz of Jazz for all of your events, I know I will
Not only are they an amazingly talented group, but they are super easy to work with. I had a 3 hour Casino night, and their performance was perfect.
I booked Geno Marriott & the Spirit of Jazz band for a 50th birthday celebration. Geno replied to me quickly, answered all my questions, kept in contact with me up until the day of my event. The customer service was amazing. The performance was outstanding. Geno & the Spirit of Jazz played and sing many many hits along with some of my boyfriends favorite songs I requested. I'm so happy I booked Geno Marriott & the Spirit of Jazz. They brought so much entertainment to the birthday celebration. I look forward to working with them again in the future.
We were fortunate enough to have Geno perform for a grand opening celebration weekend for us in Potomac Yard. He was very easy to work with, everyone enjoyed his music and we hope to be able to work with him again in the future! You can't go wrong booking Geno for your event if what you want is a high-quality performance and an incredibly professional booking process.

What to Expect
GMusic Entertainment's - Geno Marriott & the Spirit of Jazz not only provide Contemporary Smooth Jazz/Top 40 style music. But there performances with the audience are always engaging fun and exciting.
Geno Marriott is an American jazz musician, producer, and entrepreneur. Known in music circles as “GMusic”, he is the Director/Owner of GMusic Entertainment, LLC, the home of the popular Washington, DC area contemporary smooth jazz group “The Spirit of Jazz.” His company manages several bands and musicians on the east coast, including gospel, country, R&B, jazz, and classic rock groups.
Geno Marriott was born in Philadelphia, Pa., but his family moved to the Raleigh, North Carolina area in a small community called, ”Riley Hill”, when he was 4 years old, for what his father called a “reboot in life.” One day after his little league football practice, his parents bought him an alto saxophone. He wanted to play Trumpet but, his mother said, “I like the way the saxophone looks better.” Well from that very moment Geno studied and played music in his room then onto, Wendell Elementary School then to East Wake High School and then eventually in college at Howard University. He left his studies in music too early ,to… “make money” in the Information Technology Industry. For nearly two decades, Mr. Marriott worked to “make money”, but he was not fulfilling his real dream of performing music. After years of soul searching and experiencing the ups and downs of life, Geno knew that music was his saving station in life. He purchased a saxophone in 2009 and practiced until he could blow a note or two. He first gig was for $45 dollars in Baltimore, MD. He was happy that someone paid him to do what he loved to do! Over the next few years he performed with other musicians and bands while trying to find his niche in the music industry. In 2015 Geno met Kevin Carter, Tony Brown, Patrick Clark and Ralph “Bubbie” Jackson. This group became known as “The Spirit of Jazz.” The Spirit of Jazz began performing for private events, small and large across the region starting in Washington, DC, Hampton, Va., Philadelphia, Pa, The Carolina, Atlanta, Florida and New York City. They performed for an entire summer in 2017 in Manhattan inside of the Historic Flat Iron Hotel.
