The Juan Arce Trio is a professional jazz trio that offers an elegant musical atmosphere for your event. They perform classic swing, blues, and bebop tunes, romantic ballads, latin (salsa, bossa nova, boleros) and pop songs among others, all interpreted with great passion and style by professional musicians with diverse backgrounds.
They are three talented individuals. This is the second time I have used them for a customer appreciation night and they have not disappointed. The music selections are wonderful. The music was supposed to be in the background but it was so entertaining that people were up dancing.
Highly recommend them
Juan and crew performed during my cocktail hour at my wedding. Unfortunately I was in the lobby receiving my guests while the band played inside. However, I have several musicians in my family and they ran over to tell me how much they enjoyed Juan’s band. I can’t wait to watch my wedding video so I can hear them for myself! I hired the band to entertain my guests and that’s exactly what the band did! I’m very happy I chose Juan and I highly recommend them for your upcoming function!
The trio played the cocktail party at my daughter's wedding. The mood they set started the reception off in the right direction! Many of our guests took time out o just stand close to them to take in their talents. Perfect. Can't say enough.
They were great to work with before and during the event.
I will definately use them again.
Thank you guys!!
This group of musicians were a part of making our corporate drop in event a great success! Easy to work with, professional, and very talented. As the event coordinator, I received many compliments on them throughout the evening.
I would highly recommend working with them.
