What to Expect
You should expect world-class Classic Jazz, performed on muted trumpet, and vocals, with the use of professionally produced backing tracks, featuring live musicians. If you close your eyes, you will think that there is a full band playing. You should expect Jesse McGuire to be friendly, courteous, on time, and dressed for the occasion. Expect a professional PA System; his load-in/sound check to take less 30 minutes, and his performance area to take up less than 12 square feet. Finally, expect that his music will be velvety smooth, not loud and harsh, but rather at a level that allows patrons to dine and converse with absolute ease.
Jesse McGuire has performed worldwide with 19 Grammy-winning bands, including Wynton Marsalis, Frankie Valli, Stevie Wonder, Seal, James Taylor, and Elton John, just to name a few. Jesse is world famous for his awesome rendition of the National Anthem, which he performed most notably at Game Seven of the 2001 World Series. He is also an accomplished Jazz Vocalist with a sound reminiscent of late great Nat King Cole, Arthur Prysock, and more recently, George Benson. Jesse's sound is velvety and sophisticated, and it can be enjoyed at a level that allows elegant dining, and intimate conversation. Finally, Jesse has a repertoire of over 1000 Jazz Standards, and he is highly interactive with his audience, and more than happy to take requests.
