Ikembe is a professional award winning Smooth Jazz, Blues, Neo-Soul band with a twist. We are not your average jazz band. Our niche is to perform a variety of genres throughout our show. We are energetic and our work ethic is beyond reproach. We've performed at festivals, private corporate functions, birthday parties, cocktail parties, wedding receptions and tea socials
So if your budget is not right please let us know so that we might can work something out.
We are looking forward to working you.
Ikembe showed up early to set up for my private party. As dinner was being served, they played at an appropriate volume so people could have dinner conversation. The lead singer was engaging and entertaining to the crowd. When I asked their leader to change to some dance music, they were polite and accomodating. I would have them again at my next event!!!
Response from Ikembe Jazz With A Twist:
Thank you Mr. Carter for your kind words and it was a pleasure working with you. Please feel free to call upon us again. Thanks again Ikembe
What to Expect
You are to expect an evening of high energy we can perform as loud or as soft as your event requires. We perform Smooth Jazz, R&B, Neo-Soul and Jazz standards with a twist. We are not your average jazz band.
Ikembe consist of professional musicians that are pleasing to the eye as well as the ears. We've performed mostly at private functions and occasionally a club or two. We've been together for about 8 years. More information can be located on our website
