great sounds from a gifted group!

Mike and his band added the perfect note to our daughter's wedding celebration. We were looking for music that everyone would love, and that would strike the right note for our outdoor summer party. The music was superbly performed. My 85 year old dad, a saxophonist and jazz lover, was incredibly impressed; and many guests remarked on the band's performance. Mike was incredibly easy to work with; I would highly recommend the band to anyone with a love of jazz standards.

Top-notch musicians, professional and courteous

The Mike Casey Jazz Trio played excellent, smooth jazz during my daughter's wedding reception cocktail hour... and it was definitely one of the treats of the day! The jazz was played at a perfect volume for everyone's enjoyment ... our guests were able to mingle and talk and enjoy both the music and conversation before dinner.
Mike Casey was punctual, courteous and focused. I would hire them again without hesitation and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a top-notch, professional and talented band.
Sincerely,
Maurine C.

Mike's saxaphone play time at my event was well received.

Thank you Mike. You have proven to be quite professional with your time and services despite coming from another state and never meeting you before. I would highly recommend you for your saxaphone playing since all of the guests at the banquet were thoroughly pleased with the your surprise visit as I didn't tell them you were coming. I would welcome meeting the enitre band and will keep you in mind for future events.

Thanks so much Raeleen! It was wonderful working with you.

Young, profesional band who will give a reasonable price

MikeCaseyJazz was able to meet our needs for a live cocktail hour band for our wedding. They met our price needs, the look & sound we were going for. All of our wedding guests loved the young professional look. They played perfect background music for our cocktail hour in the garden. Even the reception hall wanted to keep their information so they could refer them! I would highly recommend them for any occasion!

Perfect music for the occassion

WRI contracted Mike Casey to perform at the Fine Art Gallery during the ARTS Fiesta.
The music was excellent, and enjoyed by people both inside and outside the gallery. It was the perfect compliment to the event. We booked other groups that day, and Mike Casey Quartet was the best.
We were late and disorganized. In contrast, Mike was prompt and organized! A pleasure to work with, we will be booking them again.
