I offer solo Jazz with backing music or a Jazz quartet that contains myself, piano, bass and drums. I am a native new yorker living in south florida full time. I've spent decades playing in the New York music scene with my jazz band, cover bands, original bands, and many more. If you want an authentic New York style jazz experience for your venue or event, look no further. I play guitar, tenor sax, alto sax and I even sing lead on a few tunes so it's not all instrumental. I am able to provide you with a professional and pleasant demeanor and experience. My fees start at 200 for me alone and start at 600 for the 4 piece jazz quartet.
John T. made our condo association party a successful fun night for the second year in a row. Everyone enjoyed listening and dancing to his saxophone and guitar music.
Most of us are "Baby Boomers" and loved his fifties and sixties tunes. Can't wait for him return next year.
On January 27, residents of the Beau Rivage welcomed John Tutino for 3 hours of entertainment. He exceeded our expectations! It was a fantastic evening and I cannot say enough about John’s performance! We definitely will have him back. If you are looking for a saxophone player, John Tutino is the man to call!
JT is an excellent entertainer. Not only was his music amazing, his sensitivity to the audience was outstanding. He played quiet background music to allow for conversation during appropriate periods along with moving jazz numbers that had everyone tapping their toes and nodding in tune.
John was a great performer and extremely professional as well! Provided great entertainment for our guests and was accommodating with any requests! Thanks John!
