Pentimento Jazz is a repertory company of some of the Bay Area's best jazz musicians playing in trio or quartet combinations headed by drummer/vocalist Mike Bastian. Mike and his musicians deliver perfect swinging music and vocals for weddings, parties, corporate events, benefits and restaurants.
They were fun and played wonderfully. The music really added to our event. Everyone commented about how they were excellent.
Mike and his band are AMAZING!! Can't wait to work with them again.
Mike arrived early followed by his bandmates to set up. They played throughout our event, classy jazz and standards that everyone enjoyed. When it was time for us to give out awards, they discreetly suspended play and came right back to play until the very last person at the party left. We got many compliments for choosing such a great band! WE will hire them again!
Mike and his group were simply wonderful and very accommodating. It was a pleasure having them at my client's event. I would highly recommend them.
We hired them for our elaborate corporate holiday party and they pulled it off very professionally. We requested a couple of off the track pieces and they made it seem effortless. I would definitely hire them again. It was one of the best decisions I have made. Thank you Pentimento Jazz!
The group was a pleasure to work with. We almost had to cancel due to some light rain but the group hung out until it passed. They made my event a superb one!
Response from Pentimento Jazz Trio:
Thank you Natalie. I was a pleasure playing for your group, snd you made it a fun event for us and everyone. Mike
Mike Bastian is a great drummer and works with the finest in musicians for Jazz. This group played at our event and it was fabulous!
As a first timer using Gig Salad I wasn't sure what to expect. But I'm happy to say I was extremely pleased with Pentimento. They were top notch and really brought the party to life. Each member of the trio was an exceptional musician. Highly recommended!
Mike and his bandmates were perfect for our party! We got a lot of compliments on their repertoire. They were consummate professionals, showing up on time, being ready to play on time, accommodating of venue needs, playing requests... if you are seeking a jazz trio in the South Bay for your event, my family and I cannot recommend Mike and Pentimento more highly! Thanks again, gents! You made a special family event even more memorable!
Response from Pentimento Jazz Trio:
Thank you Kael, we really enjoyed playing for your Dad's birthday, and we wish him many happy returns of the day. Warmest Regards, Mike

Pentimento Jazz play instrumental jazz with vocals, if desired by drummer/vocalist Mike Bastian.
My musicians are San Francisco "first call" musicians i.e. recent bookings: K.D. Lang, Jack Jones, Johnny Mathis etc.
I, personally studied at The Juilliard School and got my "jazz footing" in and around the Big Apple. We play regularly at Palo Alto Grill (on leave until music area is renovated--fall 2014) and monthly at Vin Santo Ristorante in Willow Glen. And of course, we play wineries, corporate events (Apple, Google, Rotary Club) and weddings all the time.
We pride ourselves on professionalism, working well with clients and event planners alike. We are flexible and accommodating with regard to set up and musical requests, timing and attire.
